Jakub was always rather a loner. Not because he didn't know how to take a woman, but from his own will. Much more than girls or sex he was interested in textbooks, science, books, wisdom older than he was himself. They were not interested in the afflictions and worries of normal today's life, because it seemed pathetic to him. The capitalist world revolves around popularity, money, and sex, and James didn't get any of this important.
Not because he was somehow religiously based, or that the presence of girls in his life blamed his lack of social abilities, no, there was no such thing. In short, Jakub felt better when there were not many people around him. They were probably their eyes-they might have revealed the insincerity and falseness of all that Jakub had the bad luck talking about.
