Do you think aros tend to want to be alone more than allos?

Personally as an aromantic i love being single and alone and don’t want any relationship/marriage with anyone. But there’s some aro people who wants to be in a relationship, but don’t feel romantic attraction. It can be a platonic relationship or whatever they wanna call it. And some allo people wants to be single by choice.

Not two aromantics are the same and neither is the allo people.

no, not really, not significantly more than allos. obviously this'll be a personal anecdote, but i for one love hanging out with people, and spending time with my friends. i do also enjoy complete alone time for a few days, but then i can feel myself get lonely and antsy, and i'm not a particularly outgoing person.

For me, not really. I really like being around others. But I do wish I weren't second fiddle to my friends "romantic partners" and just being someone that they talk to casually. And that people enjoyed talking about serious topics more, instead of "small talk" as I'm currently in a country where small talk is the most acceptable form of banter apparently. So maybe that's why my social life sucks big time. 

I do also need alone time and stuff, but right now I haven't had much IRL social interaction due to COVID-19, at least apart from my parents and my neighbors.

Not sure. I suspect I am more able to say that I want time alone than someone who is in a relationship. Some people can communicate that well but a few people I know are not keen on saying that they would like to be alone especially if they are living with a partner. This even though they would likely do well out of a bit of time to themselves.

I can't speak for anyone but me, as I don't know any other aros in real life, but I LOVE having plenty of time to myself. The dead center of what I I enjoy in life tends to center around living alone. I don't know that that relates to me being aro though.

One thing I like but most don't doing stuff alone. Like going to museums alone, walking around big city streets alone, going to concerts alone and more. I like being out and about doing stuff. But often like doing it alone rather than with others.
