As I walked in the crowd, I saw no other people alone. It made me feel bad. I know that everyone doesn't have someone, so where are all the singles?
I enjoy doing things by myself. I find it relaxing, because I don't have to worry about what someone else thinks, wants, or needs. I guess I'm just perplexed.
I prefer flying solo myself, as you know...
Williesmom maybe they went to the matinee performance, I've seen some singles at plays.
As I was walking to my seat, I passed a couple that was arguing loudly. The wife was screaming at her husband while she sobbed. Ugh - no way would I want to be either one of them.
I'll take single any day of the week. The company is fabulous!
I think it takes a certain amount of confidence to sit in a restaurant and enjoy a meal on your own. Sometimes I read, other times I just enjoy the people watching.
Don't let couples scare you off. They're probably not paying any attention anyway.

Because I travel for work, I do lots of things solo or I would never see the cities I travel to. Dinners, art museums, parks, concerts, trails, and anything else worth exploring. I think it takes getting used to and most people don't take the time.
You're just being you! Why miss a chance to go to something just b/c your friends schedules or budgets don't match up with yours? silly I say!

Anyhow... My dad was Navy.
He was out to sea 6+ months a year.
Which meant my mom was alone with us.
Which meant I got a stellar example of how to take life by the horns and do stuff alone.
So I do.
Most people don't.
They invite friends, go to meet ups to make friends, have a zillion first dates... What have you.
They all say they need to learn to be more like me.
I need to learn to be more like them!
It just doesn't occur to me to go drag someone with me.
My couple friends periodically thwack me upside the back of the head.
Apparently there is no better "wingman" than a married couple because you have the excuse of "being the 3rd wheel to peel off from" of someone interesting comes around. Blink. Blink. I'm not trying to pick people up! I'm trying to have fun!
So I suspect that there is a happy medium, somewhere.
Between enjoying things on your own, dating in motion, and being with friends.
