     I rarely go out, let alone by myself. Maybe that’s because I’m not an overly social person and would feel uncomfortable trying to make conversation. I’m presuming you mean out at night?

    aliavenue:  i rarely go out alone, and when I do, its only to the movie theatre or dinner. I wont go to a bar or something that opens an invitation for someone to talk to me. This will happen if DH is away on a business trip or if DH wants to stsy home and I feel like seeing a movie that I know he doesnt want to see (i.e. chick flick or something he thinks is gon a be a stupid movie lol)

    aliavenue:  when you say go out, what do you mean? To dinner? A party? The answer depends on the event/situation. And I’m not convinced it’s something that would be gender specific.

    aliavenue:  I do go to a restaurant by myself, or maybe a movie theatre but since I’m not really into the bar or club scene I would probably only go with friends.

    I don’t usually do it. But I have gone to grab a bite alone some times. And I agree with PP , the answer depends on the situation..

    aliavenue:  Go out alone to a bar/club? No. Unless it’s Football Sunday and I can’t get my game, then I’ll venture out. Out alone to Shopping/Theaters/ ect? Yes, all the time. My FI and I have different schedules, so we are used to going about doing our own thing.

    I go shopping alone, I find I can take all the time I need without feeling rushed but when I go to the movies or out to dinner, I never go alone, I wouldn’t feel comfortable.

    I go out alone all the time.

    I often need to get away from people, but it’s comforting to have them as background noise… Being home alone makes me feel restless.

    I don’t mind going out alone to shop, eat, watch a movie, go to a museum or something similar. In fact, I prefer shopping alone most of the time. 

    I wouldn’t go to a bar/club by myself. 

    I don’t feel that being female makes any difference in these choices, though.
