    ive done all those things more than once. great way to stay connected and focused. nowadays people are so terrified to be alone for some reason guess it'll force them to think about THINGS for a change as opposed to senseless distractions

    Honestly, you should do those things alone all the time. Most people do not know how to be alone and enjoy it.

    Going alone to a restaurant where they have waiters/waitresses is awkward; you'll be the only single there. Save your money and go to some decent place that doesn't have waitpeople.

    The majority of my life resembles that video -- and not by choice.

    The things I do alone are going to the gym, seeing a movie, and shopping. I've yet to visit a museum, though I'd love to. To be honest, it becomes rather lonesome and places me back into the "I wish I had a mate" stage, but you have to enjoy your own company before you enjoy someone else's, which is why I've been venturing out of my own. However, I will say I possess the bitch face when I'm not conversing with cashiers (which isn't inviting at all).

    I'm an introvert, so I do enjoy an alone time quite a bit. I've done most of those things alone except going to a concert, which I don't enjoy because I can't stand being in a loud place.

    I've even traveled oversea alone. icon_confused.gif It can feel lonely at times, but once you get a hang of it, it can be very liberating. icon_biggrin.gif

    I do all these things too. It's really pleasurable to just enjoy yourself, and pay attention and analising things at your own pace, with no one hurrying you up.

    Nice post. Nice video. I do most of these activities alone all the time. But dining alone least of all. Take something to read and hope they have a quiet table. Dining out seems social by definition.

    But shopping? That's never a social activity for me. I dislike everything about the process from finding parking to the mall crowds. I know what I want, and I get in and get out.

    The year before last, I went alone to Toronto over Christmas/New Year. I flew in on Christmas Day (great day for cheaper flights and hassle-free travel). The CBSA guy at the airport was questioning me as to my plans and said, "I'm asking, 'cause it's kinda unusual for someone to be travelling without family at Christmas".

    I enjoy the company of others, but I also thrive on solitude. Is that so hard to understand?

    I love that video. Although I'd like to add something to it......take a long road trip by yourself. Driving cross country by myself was the single happiest moment of my life. (And I'm an extrovert.)

    I've done all those things.

    I even got lost just a few days ago. Went on a BMX night ride with a large group of guys, in a town I've never been to before. At the end of the ride, the group dispersed and I had no idea where I was. Thank you Google Maps. icon_lol.gif

    I have done all the things featured in the header video.

    But I would also add world travel and backpacking, where I prefer being alone, so there is no squabbling in deciding where to visit, what to do, and how long to stay.

    As for museums, while alone I may even have a fetish to wrap my arms around a marble bust, but since the gallery is never empty of people, this action is something extremely rare!

    I think introverts and extroverts might split on this. I am a high functioning introvert. I am not afraid of being alone. But I grow the most when I experience things with other people.

    I am alone almost all the time so it is no big deal for me.

    I travel a fair bit for my job, so I am alone quite often. I am quite content to be alone. I have gone to a hockey game by myself, movies, restaurants, museums- pretty much everything. Sometimes it's nice to be in your own space.

    Agreed on the travelling part.

    How can you be in a relationship and alone at the same time ?

    Been there, done it! Drove from North Carolina to Phoenix then to Seattle. It's an incredible experience.

    I travel extensively for my job and I stay at a city for 3 to 6 months where I don't know anyone. So the first few months, I do things by myself. But because I'm an extrovert, I'll make new friends and I find myself not being alone by the time my job contract is done.

    Then I go to a new city. Repeat the cycle. Same outcome.
