The Pros And Cons OF Being A Lone Wolf

At some point during the zombie apocalypse, you’ll be alone for some time. For many, they would prefer it, while others see this as a scarier thought, a fate worst than death. Each person is different, and what works for you might not work for your neighbor. Many believe going at the apocalypse alone is better than with a group. Groups only bring conflicts, strains on supplies, and more mouths to feed. But, psychologically humans are sociable creatures. We thrive on human contact, but more people means more possible zombies. So, is going lone wolf really good overall?
