Abstract [en]

There is a contradiction between not wanting to be alone, craving for fellowship, but still not wanting to socialize with just anybody. The purpose with this paper is to inquire into individuals experiences of loneliness and of fellowship, as well as the tension between individual/ and social needs. The empirical material consists of five semistrucured interviews with a mix of individuals with one common factor; they were all frequently visited the meeting/place Nyfiket in Helsingborg during the summer 2011. The result were interpreted on the basis of E.Goffmans theory concerning the inevitable role-playing in everyday life, E.Fromms discussion about individuals ongoing espace towards- or away from things in life. But also on the basis of Robert S. Weiss theory about provisions of different social relationships, and T. J.Scheff argumentation concerning the balance between closeness and distance when it comes to social bonds. This study showed that each one had or did experience loneliness. Although it also shows that the experience of loneliness as well as fellowship is divided. Loneliness is divided into voluntarily and satisfying or involontarily and awful. It also came to my understandning that intercourse provides with goodness but also comes with strenuous requirements as roleexpectations. The individuals though shared a wish for possibilities to socialize without requirements.

Abstract [sv]

Det förekommer en motsägelse beträffande att inte vilja vara ensam, med en längtan efter gemenskap, men samtidigt inte vilja umgås med vem som helst. Syftet med denna studie är att kvalitativt undersöka individers upplevelse av ensamhet och gemenskap samt spänningen mellan individuella- och social behov. Materialet består av fem genomförda semistrukturerade intervjuer med ett blandat urval individer med en gemensam faktor; de var alla återkommande besökare på mötesplatsen Nyfiket i Helsingborg under sommaren 2011. Intervjueresultatet tolkades utifrån E.Goffmans rollbegrepp, E.Fromms tankar om indidivdens flykt till- eller flykt från något. Samt utifrån Robert S. Weiss teori om sex förnödenheter av social tillförsel och T.J.Scheffs resonemang kring balansen mellan närhet och distans vilka fordras för individens fulla3välbefinnande.Studien visar att var och en har upplevt- eller upplever en känsla ensamhet. Dock visar det sig att ensamhetens- såväl som gemenskapens påverkan är tvåsidig. Ensamhet som delas upp i två kategorier av informanterna kan vara ofrivillig och avskyvärd alternativt tillfredställande då den är självvald. Gemenskap har likaså antingen en positiv inverkan eller en negativ, om det senare alternativet innebär påfrestande rollförväntningar. En önskan om utökad gemenskap samt möjligheter till kravlöst umgänge uttrycks hos samtliga.
