Dear Poll: Are You Craving More Alone Time?

I don't know about you, but getting a night to myself these days is getting harder and harder. While I love attending holiday parties, I need some alone time every once in a while to recharge my battery and get my beauty sleep. Some people I know, though, look forward to having every night booked up throughout the month of December. So where do you fall in the spectrum: are you craving more alone time this holiday season or are you thoroughly enjoying being a social butterfly?

i LOVE my alone time. i get SO much done when i'm left to my own devices. it's no fun cleaning the house when the bf is sitting on the couch playing video games... but if he were out working extra hours or something, then i'm more likely to put some effort in around the house (just as an example -i don't really take pleasure in using my alone time to clean). also, very hard to wrap his gifts when he's always around. lol.

Nah, I would love to have more of my time booked. I'm back home from college for the holidays, and I've lost touch with a lot of my old friends... My family and I don't do tons together when I'm home. We just kind of sit around together, so I've been kind of bored.

Have plenty of alone time...I'm always alone. I wish I could have more time with...some people, well one in particular, considering everyone else is being so negative.

I'm away from home for the first time and haven't made a lot of friends in my new town. So I'm not exactly raking in the invitations, lol, but I don't really care either. It's nice this year to just be with my husband and watch movies, although I have been baking wayyyy too many brownies!

i'm the same as lovely. i love this time of year, i love socializing with family and friends, but we (my bf and i) went away this weekend to his hometown to stay with his parents and party with some of his friends, and by the time we left his friend's new house at lunchtime on sunday (like 36 hours total of being there) we were so eager to just head home, and spend some ALONE TIME. we both were happy and had a great weekend, but there's something to be said about quality time! the one time we got to be alone all weekend was for about 3 minutes while i changed my shirt before a party on saturday evening, and we just shut the door and hugged each other because we so needed some bonding time without everyone else around! it feels good to need that with my guy, and in terms of being alone just ME, i don't really need that too often. but come january, i know we will be loving to cuddle up and watch a movie BY OURSELVES!

I've been so burnt out I've been craving more and more "me" time for sure.

Actually, holidays are the loneliest time for me. I live in a city where lots of people have family across the country and leave for Christmas early. I'm in an LDR so my boy is not around and I'm trying to finish up my work before Christmas.

I am kinda in the middle. I love seeing family and stuff, but I just want some alone time with my man and me! We have so many commitments it's unreal!

My husband and I are definitely not into the social scene. Even when we have 1 social gathering planned we want to cancel. Just not our thing. I hate parties and ESPECIALLY Christmas parties. I would rather do something with just him and I.
