Living Alone - A Poll

susandennis was musing over the joys of single life, and did the math around how long she has lived alone. Being similarly curmudgeoned, I thought I would do the same here, and take a poll of y'all.

I've lived alone for most of my life:
8 months in college after my dorm mate flunked out
My senior year in college
3 months in SF after college
1.5 years in Astoria
9 months in Omak
2.5 years (Peace Corps)
9 months in Raymond
and continuously since July, 1978

Grand total:
37 years, 2 months 64% of my life

Mow the poll - pay attention, because LJ polls have a limit of 20 units per scale, I had to split the years choice in three:
