I like working remotely but I'm starting to be concerned that am a little isolated. I'm 100% remote and I live alone. I'm not the biggest people person but this much alone time probably isn't healthy. Does anyone else every feel like this?

Do you live in a city? There are so many opportunities to make friends and hang out. If not, maybe there are some local habit groups you can join?
Hanging out with people you like is still needed for introverts.

Before the pandemic I went to WINOs (bingo with wine) and game nights at the local winery we lived by. My neighbors were elderly or night owls so meeting and becoming friends with them wasn’t really an option.
Then we moved during the pandemic to a city 1% of the size of the county we lived in. Most things in town that aren’t big chain places close at 5pm which doesn’t work for my schedule.
