I don’t go to the movies by myself, but I also rarely go with friends. I also tend not to go to restaurants by myself, but I do frequent coffee shops and just bring a book or a notepad or something so I can read or write.

Of course. Is this something other people don’t do?
Eating breakfast out on my own on a day off is one of my absolute favourite things to do.

socalgirl1689: no, I’ve gone for dinner by myself plenty of times. Maybe not to a super romantic place (but that’s probably just because I would rather save the money for when I go with my partner). It’s not wierd…when you eat alone the only one thinking it’s wierd is yourself haha

I have done both! 2 years ago I moved to Florida only knowing 2 people and so I’d go to dinner alone, I never sat at a table alone but by the bar, it’s kind of fun, get whatever you want to eat. Mostly went to places like TGO Fridays, very laid back. I actually went to dinner by myself a few nights ago, my fiancé was working late and we were going to a movie and needed to kill time. I also went to the movies alone.. nobody really notices because the room is dark and the attention is on the movie, not some chick alone.

Fiance isn’t big on eating out and he is vegetarian, so my favourite places are meatier than he would like. We don’t have friends so I go by myself. I think brunch is worst by yourself! Movies I have been to a few times by myself, I usually go in the day time, I don’t pick a popular date time or anything!

socalgirl1689: Good question. For me it is because day time on the weekends is my ‘me’ time whereas in the evenings I am more likely to have plans with friends.

I love going out by myself! If I’m off work and Darling Husband is working, I might take myself to a nice restaurant for lunch. I’ve gone to movies by myself many times. I’ve never felt a strong need to be surrounded by people I know when I go out. I’m pretty independent and I don’t give a second thought to what other people may think.
Darling Husband and I love being together, and I can’t imagine my life without him. But we both enjoy our alone time. We even take trips without each other sometimes…I recently went out of state to visit family for a week and Darling Husband stayed home, and in December Darling Husband will be going to visit his home town for about a week without me. That’s just the type of people we are, and we’re 100% ok with it.

turkeysausage: SO and I also do value our alone time. It can be anywhere from him spending a weekend with the guys or me going home to see my Mom as long as 4 weeks (yes, 4 weeks!). It does feel good to miss each other sometimes.
