Are Modern Men More Lonely Than Ever Before? I Mean, This Study Says So But I Feel Perfectly Fine

Are modern men more lonely? According to a recent study, the answer is yes, but if I’m being honest I don’t feel lonely at all. Apparently, the experts seem to think that the modern man is some sad lonesome person with nothing to look forward to, but in my opinion, that’s not the case at all, at least for me. 

What makes someone lonely in the first place? Is it night after night of eating Oreos while watching Stranger Things and crying when the characters kiss? I don’t think so, that’s just the activity of someone who enjoys time on their own. Being alone should be a terribly painful thing, but if that were the case then why do I feel nothing at all? Just night after night of comfortable numbness that will inevitably stretch forever onward until the day I die. Does that sound lonely to you? Cause to me that just sounds like a good time.

So why do modern men appear more lonely? Clearly, it’s just because we’re all focused on the grind, we don’t have time for love or family because the modern man knows the importance of meditation and solitude on the path to greatness. Working twelve hours a day and giving it your all is its own reward, this idea that we need intimacy or emotional validation is just a myth being pushed by big psychology.

So let’s take this new report with a grain of salt because, to me, it doesn’t sound accurate. I happen to enjoy all the nights I spend by myself, regardless of how silent and meaningless they are. You don’t need people to enjoy the silence of a room or the warmth of a thirty-minute shower. Enough with the constant shaming of those of us who are just built different, we aren’t lonely, we’ve just forgotten what it feels like to desire human interaction and that’s perfectly normal. Now please excuse me, I’ve got a Tupperware of chili I need to microwave.
