The social requirement of freediving has me locked out

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
I have similar problems. The only solution I found is diving alone, hate to tell you. I don’t believe freediving necessitates a buddy like many do.
It's not really that lonely. You just have to come to terms with the idea that we're members of the aquatic world. We share it with the fishes, sea stars, crabs.. Even scuba divers (I use scuba when necessary for science) miss out on this because they bring their world down with them, and are therefore outsiders.
