DH is away part of it business other half pleasure
So I had to do laundry, and while I wait for my clothes to dry I went to have lunch at the restaurant next door. And after I am done here, I am going to the movies while I wait for his flight to come in.
I told my sister and she was like “aww, no one wants to go with you abd I said I opted to go alone. I don’t mind my alone time” I also know that my girlfriends are busy today, I invited my sister but she is having company.
Is this weird? I mean, I dont feel bad or weird…I mean obviously if DH wasnt away I would be doing all of the above with him. But since he is not, I dont mind doing these things alone.

@Daizy914: Definitely not weird! I haven’t yet gone to the movies alone, but I will someday. Why the heck not?!

Not weird at all! You’re obviously a very confident and secure woman! Many people would be too insecure to see a movie alone (IE-me). Do your thing girl 🙂

@Daizy914: I would think it is more weird to just stay home and do nothing. Your life doesn’t stop because he is gone.
You were a person before you ever met him, and would continue to be a person if (knock on wood) something ever happened to him.
Doing stuff isn’t just for people in a relationship.

I don’t particularly like doing things alone, but I do things without him when he’s busy. I usually opt to spend time with my sister or a friend.

If I’m the one away on business then I have no problem eating and going out by myself. But if he’s the one away, I like to just be a lazy bum at home, same as when he’s home.

I love to go to the movies alone, actually. Don’t get me wrong, I like going with my husband too. But I really like being able to watch a movie without talking, and without feeling stupid for crying.
Eating alone at a restaurant is something I don’t like very much though..

I don’t think it’s weird at all. Like a PP said, life doesn’t stop just because your SO is gone.
When DH is gone I will frequently go out to eat or to a movie by myself.

@Daizy914: yes! He’s not huge on soup, so when he’s gone I like to take myself out for a big bowl of pho. I bring my Kindle and slurp away while reading. Love it.

Sometimes I prefer to do things alone! When I lived in the city, I would do things alone alllll the time. Now that we live together, and not in a city…I still do things alone!

I enjoy my alone time, even when he’s around. We eat dinner together, we watch certain TV shows together, if there’s a movie we both want to see we’ll do that together also but I’ve gone by myself more than once. My husband and I don’t drag each other along to things we don’t mutually enjoy just for the sake of spending time with one another. Damned if you’ll see him set foot in a mall or me at a sports game.
