One of the best things about it IMO is that you learn to enjoy your own company. Until you do that, you'll waste time with people who are noisy, negative, overbearing, or simply boring, just because you think ANY company is better than none.

I do get lonely sometimes, and I crave some female company, but I'd rather pass an evening with a male friend who shares my interests and my taste in wine, or else alone with a good book or a home-improvement project, than with a pretty woman who doesn't know how to hold up her end of a conversation.
