Humans are social animals, and communal living has been the standard since we were huddling in caves. So it's not all that surprising that when left completely to our own devices, things can get a little weird. If you're a part of the growing percentage of people spending at least part of their lives living alone (nearly 1 in 2 in Manhattan, by the way), maybe you share some of these New Yorkers' eccentricities.The solitary quirks know no bounds, and range from staying up all night and subsisting on cereal to talking to yourself in French and using the dryer as clothes storage. One woman left the house without her skirt on and another practically needs a Post-It to remember to close the bathroom door when company is over.
For some, it becomes difficult to give up those freedoms and cohabitate again, while others think they'd have no problem. What do you think?
