    Bastille is playing in concert and I really wanted to go! I just wanted to know if it was weird to go alone. All my friends and siblings are busy and Bastille is just so awesome that I don't want to miss them

    No way! Hell, I know people that even go to the cinema by themselves.

    Enjoy!

    No it's not. I go to the movies with friends or by myself.
    Once i was by myself at the movies and this guy behind me goes "how tragic he's all alone". Who cares what other people think

    Many people think that there is something wrong with someone who will attend a movie or performances alone. Why should they care?

    If you want to go alone go! Don't concern yourself with what others may think.

    No, it's not. Go and have as much fun as you can! icon_biggrin.gif I usually go to concerts by myself if no one else wants to and it can oddly be more fun and allows you to mingle more than you would if you went with a group of friends or family and let loose (responsibly, of course)

    Yes, it is completely and utterly weird and down right pathetic.

    Never leave your house and go anywhere unless you are accompanied by another person.

    Look at it this way: you want to go to a concert where your favourite band is playing. You'll be surrounded by a bunch of other people who love the band.

    You won't exactly be "alone", will you ?

    Maybe you don't know those people, yet, but you'll know some of them soon.

    So ... go !

    venue35 saidOnce i was by myself at the movies and this guy behind me goes "how tragic he's all alone".

    And he was the bigger loser since he no doubt said it loud enough for you to hear.

    Don't pass up the chance to see Bastille, they perform their asses off...Going by yourself shows confidence and strength. GO man.

    Nope, nothing weird about it. Can't really talk during the show anyway so what difference does it make?

    I have friends in bands and go see them by myself when nobody else is available. I know enough of their other fans by now that I don't feel alone for long.

    Absolutely not. You´re actually more likely to find someone with similar interest since you both like the same music obviously. However maybe if your friends are busy, broke or they just don´t like your music taste enough to want to go then enjoy that concert by yourself. Arrive near the concert venue 1-2 hours early and don't be ashamed to turn on Grindr. You might find a concert date lol. You never know.

    Nope. Not at all.

    Why are people, especially dudes, so worried about doing things solo? I've seen so many people pass up a good time because they couldn't fine someone to go with them somewhere. If it's something you wanna do then do it.

    Going to a gay bar alone - now that's hard work. A concert? No problem.

    Concerts are not my sort of thing, but I will not forget one venue I visited while backpacking Australia in 1997.

    Overalled by its outlandish architecture, I could not resist attending a concert at the Sydney Opera House which juts into the Harbour. I was on my own, but after the performance was over, I found myself chatting happily with another backpacker who also attended the concert on his own.

    There is nothing amiss about going to a concert, or for that matter, to a nightclub, on your own.

    go. i love bastille and missed them because i wanted to go with people. ended up going to see anberlin by myself a couple months later alone and had a great time. don't wait around for others because you never know when you'll get the opportunity again. and who knows, you may just meet someone there icon_wink.gif

    NO.

    Why are people so afraid of being their own person and turn out these co-dependant messes.

    Doing something alone doesn't make you lonely, actually it shows strength

    If everyone else hasn't convinced you yet, then my response probably won't either but you should hit up Bastille, man. He's awesome! Plus, it's easier to make new friends at concerts when you're by yourself than with a group of friends. Just never know who you'll meet, so why not?

    If it's your favorite band, don't miss out on the opportunity. Go for it.

    As long as you're not anti-social, I think it's totally fine to enjoy your alone time from time to time. Some activities are more fun when you share the moments with your friends, but sometimes it doesn't work out as you'd want.

    I love musicals and not a lot of my friends share that passion, so I'd just go by myself too sometimes. I also see others who came by themselves.

    I have even traveled to other countries alone. icon_smile.gif
