I've not only gone to the movies by myself, I've gone on vacation to Mexico and Puerto Rico by myself. I was single for 12 years before my second marriage and all my girlfriends were married and somewhat restricted when it came to traveling. No way would I NOT do something because I couldn't find a partner to do it with. Beside, I like me alot and enjoy my own company. :)
I do and I have. Most of my hearing friends are not "comfortable" going to an open captioned movie with us deaf/hard of hearings. Many of my hearing friends don't even enjoy foreign language films with the open sub-titling "captioning". So... I just hitch up my big girl panties and go see the movies all by my sweet lonesome. Look me up next time you are in Wichita and want to go see a (decent) movie, as we now have several different kinds of closed captioned movies using accessible tools like glasses or viewers which, of course, now my deaf friends don't want to go to the movies for - because they prefer open captioned where they can just 'blend in' with the hearing people.

Yes! It bothered me at first, but that's just because it was a new activity. Why allow others to dictate what you do?! I've been by myself most of my adult life so if I waited for someone else to be with me, I wouldn't be doing much! Ha!! If you haven't done it, try it! Bolster that self-esteem!! (I used to read a book while waiting for the show to start, but now I have my phone...can do much more while I wait!)
