Who actually prefers social distancing?

I hear a lot of extroverts complaining about Coronavirus lockdowns. I’ll admit, I work remotely and this has not affected my day-to-day very much. As an introvert, I also like not having the social pressure to go hang out with people.

Can that please continue after this is all over? 😁

It's literally the only good thing to come out of this whole ordeal. It keeps people away from me at work, which is a HUGE plus. Sure, I miss the occasional movie theater trip and eating out but that's about it. Haha.

I do. I really hope this is the new normal. Some time ago my wife and I were at the grocery store and I was paying with my debit card. The dude behind was standing way too close behind me as I was paying (most people do and it irritates the shit out of me). This time it bothered me even more so I asked him if he would step back and give me my space. He kind of rolled his eyes but he did. Now, when we go, people are 6 feet behind me when I pay. I love it.

Having to stay at least six feet away from other people during this virus crisis is something I don't mind. It hasn't irritated me, and I don't think it will.

I'm a homebody by nature so you would think that the 'Rona would make me feel comfort. But it doesn't. I at least like having the option to go places. I like going into my office to work and keeping that separate from my home life. I miss it.

I don't mind people not getting too close but everything being closed down is too much for me. I have a slight preference for introversion so my 40% extrovert hates this but my 60% introvert is really happy.

Still, it would be nice to have the freedom to go out and grab a burger or something and actually be able to eat it at the restaurant. I'm also very annoyed that chiropractic offices are closed.

I feel sorry for those of you feeling happy at isolation. I'm an introvert by nature. I don't go out to shows much, or the bars - but I really miss being with friends and family. Not being able to hug my daughters and granddaughters sucks monkey balls.

It's a mixed bag....I like it but I don't.

I like social distancing and giving excuses to stay home but I also hate going anywhere right now...like the grocery store. What a pain in the ass. And no sports is stupid.

Not the biggest fan. I like to go to the restaurant, movie theatre or just going somewhere to do something. Yes, it’s fun that I’m saving a bit of money, however, I would love if things got back to normal real soon.

I like the social distancing. Never did like people standing too close to me. However I wish I had the option to go out to eat or shop for cloths and shoes if I wanted to. Not that I am big on shopping for cloths but not having the option to do so is irritating. I can't buy cloths and shoes online. They rarely fit right.
