So you prefer to be alone? Who cares! Being alone is pretty much the best thing in the world: No one to tell you what to do or judge any of your decisions. This article is for all the people out there who hate other people.

The idea of getting ready to go out into a large crowd of people, where you have to make small talk about your life all night, is actually more of a nightmare in your mind. You kind of want to punch the person who came up with the term "networking," and taking visitors to tourists spots when they visit isn't your idea of a good time. Those are just some signs that you hate other people. 

Now, that's not to say you don't have friends. People who hate people may have lots of friends and enjoy being around them, but that's because they know them and can have real conversations with them. Plus, it's not necessary to fill the silence void when you're around friends. 

Here are 20 struggles only people who hate other people understand (also known as signs you and April Ludgate are soul mates):

1. Elevator small talk makes you cringe.
