By that I mean alone alone. No ties. I don't want to be bothered by family, I don't want a child, or a wife/girlfriend, or even a pet. I could have the occasional Acquaintance but that's it. I told my parents that I wanted to live alone and to not have a relationship and they were worried about me. They said something like "You're going to live an unhappy life" or something like that, Im not looking for an Is it normal thing, I just want to know what could possibly spark this.
