More people are living alone than ever, as a statistic we met recently with great happiness noted. But — prepare yourself — living alone might be making you weird. In The New York Times’ today, Steven Kurutz sort of went and ruined that joy with his look at the strange things people do when they live alone.

How weird does it get? A few examples from Kurutz’s piece and our own personal experience:

Staying up all night.

Washing vegetables in the shower.

Examining your pores nightly in a mirror.

Coming home late at night and attempting to cook things.

Wearing strange ensembles.

Never closing the bathroom door.

Talking to your cat.

Never eating actual proper meals. Small bag of Doritos for dinner, mayhaps?

Being weird.

In the parlance of Sex and the City, this was “Secret Single Behavior.” But, is it actually a problem? Take the case of Amy Kennedy, a 28-year-old schoolteacher who lives alone in a two-bedroom apartment. Kurutz writes:
