(adj., n., rare) 1. A state of contented celibacy which is accidentally norm-bucking. Would not even theoretically be used by those who might actually be "quirkyalone" (e.g., Katherine Hepburn; Nina Simone; Angelina Jolie
post-Billy Bob Thornton and pre-Brad Pitt).
2. (adj., n., rare) A delusional, idealistic self-ascription only ironically suited to its referent (i.e., aging, undersocialized, oversmart, naive diagnosis-hunters). A form of Sartre's bad faith
3. (n., rare) A hopeful
but doomed curmudgeon
I wish my married friends would talk about something other than their sex lives and kids and other married friends :( !! They'll never understand what it's like for us quirkyalones. I'll post more on this later -- time to feed the cat!!
