    Single is the one..

    Single is the one who walks hands in pocket on the crowded roads, on the congested pavements.

    Could you please check my sentence? Can I use alone instead of single?

    I don't understand your meaning.

    Re: Single is the one..

    Why would having your hands in your pockets signify that you are alone/single?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You need to get into the habit of ending every sentence with a punctuation mark.

    Re: Single is the one..

    But the loner is the one who prefers not to associate with others. I don't mean a preference, but a general situation.
