( Table for 1???)
I am going to see a baseball game tonight, by myself. Granted, I know a few people who will be there that I’ll be eventually meet up with, but I am taking the trip “aaallll byyyyy maaaahseeeelllllf”, with no one to split parking with. And I do it all the time.
Anyone who knows me understands that if I really want to go to something, I don’t need anyone tagging along. Yes, it would be nice to have someone to make fun of strangers with when I’m out and about, but it’s not necessary. I have been to countless movies, sporting events, even concerts, all by my damn self, and it’s no big deal. A heated discussion ensued at work last week regarding this topic, when one of my employees thought it weird that I would spend a lot of money on a concert, just to go solo. This same person also doesn’t realize how hard it is to find someone to go see Alabama Shakes with you, which is why I do what I do.
During the same discussion, we also kicked around places where people would feel comfortable going alone, as well as places no one should travel to solo. Here are a few:
PLACES TO GO BY YOURSELF:
DON’T GO THERE ( BY YOURSELF):
- Concerts ( oops)
- Sporting Events ( oops)
- The Club ( did that once, and will never do it again…. talk about looking like a creeper)
What do you think? Is there somewhere you wouldn’t be caught solo? Agree with anything on the lists? Is there anywhere you’ve been that no one would believe you went by yourself?
