    This if for People doing full time Internet Marketing, if you aren't one of them, dont even answer:

    I know a normal day-job can be boring but atleast you have collegues to talk to. Arent you very lonely and bored when you just work on your own all day every day?

    I used to work 12hrs/day, that was far better than hanging out with my dickhead "friends".

    Now I work over 7hrs/day, going to pool and drinking some beer in the evenings.

    That's enough for now, until I automate everything.

    No not at all, making money is a thrill for me, you must make a time to play and have fun thought, or you could go crazy.

    I am married, have kid, wife etc...Never worked with "collegues" cause I was always my own boss, nothing bad about it. When I go to vacation I do take my work with me but I like that, cause it is really nice to come back from the beach, open a cold one on the balcony, check if I got new orders and watch at the sunset holding my wifes hand and watching my kid play around

    Nope, plus I love what I do and don't have a boss to answer to. Get to see people when I want to see people. If I want the day off.....I take the day off.... or the week....or the month. Lonely... nah. Plus I've got BHW to keep me company when I feel like shooting the shit :)

    I'm doing IM so I can have a social life by moving to a better location. Mostly old people where I live, the only young people are in HS, and I dont want to deal with kids. The only decent nightclubs are like 40 miles away,and I would have to drive across the 2nd longest bridge in the world to get to them.

    On the contrary....I like working on my own, it keeps me focused. And I only have to hang around with people I want to hang around with and not because I am forced to work with them.

    I love it...:p

    Whenever I get lonely I just find a homeless guy and pay him to let me put cigarettes out on his face. You know, friendship.

    This is why I have a laptop and a tablet, so I can take my work to the pub, beach or any other place I like. What I do find boring is having to get up at a certain time to go and work with dickheads on shift work and be talked down to like I am a complete and utter bellend. People do IM for freedom, and if you are not getting that freedom, you are doing it wrong.

    Since my girl works practically all day (2 jobs ugh) and friends have the 9to5 life, I do get lonely sometimes. This is when I call my mom over to my place since she doesn't work at the moment. We'll usually walk to the local grocery store for some exercise, buy some beer for her and food to cook, then have her throw a delicious dish in my face while the sun beams in the living room. BBQ has been awesome lately :D

    Who said that you have to do IM on your own? Build a company, open an office and hire some great staff and you won't have any issues being lonely!

    Sometimes when I'm working on a specific project that requires me to sit in the same place doing the same thing for more than 6 hours, I get a little ancy. I wouldn't call it loneliness though.

    I like the idea of working comfortably in my own home.
