26. I have no problem being alone either.

I enjoy my own company likewise. When I was younger I was much more extroverted, but like you I find that the vast majority of people annoy me, so I keep within my own little circle of family and friends and I'm perfectly fine with that. I do manage to occasionally meet a new person who I find out has similar interests and on the same wavelength as I am, but I wade into a friendship cautiously.

I venture outside my comfort zone when I feel like it and go on vacations, but I'm always very happy to get back home also. I volunteer a couple days a week and have a somewhat superficial relationship with a couple of the other volunteers, but I have also run into a couple of really nasty volunteers who remind me of an old workplace and the drama there, so it seems even in volunteering you can run across the miserable people. I'm 70 and I just don't need the conflict and drama any longer. I just want to live out my days in peace and quiet.
