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!)

yes, go to movies, music events & other things alone as I live alone & people I know are not nearby so has to be well planned in advance.
I am on the summer challenge now. I have pleurisy, 3 types of anemia from Iron,folic acid,other vitamins not working,chronic pneumonia,chronic kidney disease,1 partially collapsed lung, low blood pressure & blood clots in both lungs for 3 years..I am 55 years old. I had cervical cancer 6 years ago, no signs last 3 years as well.
I do. My husband and friends don't have same tastes or schedules as I do. So I go alone. I also go to music fests alone, there I end up seeing and hanging out with friends. I have tended to do my own thing most of my life. So I really am ok with doing things solo.
Me and a friend are planning to see Hotel Transylvania 3 together, then we are going for a buffet dinner. The dinner is my treat this time, this friend has treated me a few times in the past. She says it's my turn.
We might go in August, gives me time to save money. I've been shopping online and in the mall, so I need time to build up my savings account again. Sigh!
It was soooo hard for me to save that money, but sooooooo easy to spend it! sigh!
Last month, I went to see Jurassic World, I asked her to go see it with me but she said that she wasn't interested in dinosaurs. Then she wanted to go see a ghost/horror movie but I said no thanks!
I don't often go to the movies. I'd prefer to go with someone but would go alone if I really wanted to see a film. I often go walking alone, but have a friend to go walking with every Thursday, and I always enjoy that.
I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6
Absolutely! It's the only way I would be able to watch the movie without someone distracting me because no one in my house will let me watch a movie without their talking over it or making snide comments about the characters or plot of the movie to the point I scream at them to leave the room and then they've ruined it for me to enjoy.

I've gone to movies, restaurants, coffee shops, fitness classes, etc. alone. I don't need company with me all the time and focus on doing things I enjoy. It can be nice to go with people, but I don't let being alone stop me from doing something I'd enjoy.
