    我大概只能給你一些我自己的感覺, 我用這三個單字照個句子:

    I am a lone wolf. Although I am alone, but I don't feel lonely.


    lone 常用在名詞之前, 獨自一人的意思. 和alone意思很接近, 但不同的是 alone多用於be動詞後:

    If you talk about a lone person or thing, you mean that they are alone.

    lonely 則是『寂寞』的意思, 講的是心裡的狀態.

    lone wolf: a person who prefers to live, act, or work alone or independent of others.
