    I just had a teensy conversation about this with chicago the other day, haha. Yeah, I hate going to movies and restaurants alone because I feel like people are laughing at me. Also, I hate going anywhere in the city alone at night. ... Minneapolis any time of the day...

    Especially If It's Crowded

    If I'm going somewhere where it's crowded, you can bet I won't be going by myself unless I really have to. New places tend to leave me uneasy.

    Never Alone

    I do suffer from Social Anxiety... Wow, sometimes I hate mentioning it so much! But, it's an annoying fact of my life! Anyhoo, beside mentioning this for the umpteenth time, I don't feel comfortable going anywhere in public alone. Without a person with me, mostly my mother...

    No, Can't Do It.

    I have to have a "safe" person with me. It's usually mom or my grandmother. Shane use to be one. I just can't go anywhere in public by myself without giving myself a panic attack. I am better though, I can actually go into a store & lose track of mom & I don't...

    I Really Don't Like It.

    I hate going places on my own. I'm just so self conscious and I really don't like being stared at by everyone. That's why I don't really go out much.. apart from when I have to go to college and stuff. I just need someone with me. Sometimes I just don't feel safe without a good...

    I'm A Bit Crap By Myself

    I don't like venturing to new places or situations alone. If its part of my daily routine, for example going to work, I'm fine, but when anything new crops up, or I have to go somewhere different alone, then my anxiety flares up. Even something as simple as stopping off at a...

    Last Night Was Bad

    So I went to a tiny bar attached to a restaurant to see my friends' band play.  They said they'd be playing at 10, so I got there - alone and (I *thought*) fashionably late.  Three of my aquaintances were there, but seemed none-to-happy to speak with me.  I spent...

    Never Do.

    I was like this even before the agoraphobia, but now, during my struggle, I could never go any place alone.  I won't go in anywhere alone, and I mean it.  Not the convenience store, not wal-mart (especially not), not the mall... If I go in some place alone I could...

    Sometimes, Some Places

    For the most part, I'm pretty good going off and doing things by myself. Sure, its fun if a friend or friends can come and we can make a day/night out of it, but its not always essential. However, there are some rather random places that I feel uncomfortable going to alone. The...

    For the Most Part......

    Going to "Normal" places alone isn't a problem.  The places I really want to go to I know I should go with someone else.  I love to explore old buildings, out of the way ghost towns, and places that if something bad happened no one would know I was there...

    Well i dont mind going to places alone at all.

    i could travel the world alone . The thing i dont like is going to parties or weddings or get togethers alone. It's like i always need a friend or someone to accompany me. It sounds crazy but i am much more comfortable surrounded by strangers than to have to meet people i know...

    I Hate Going Alone...

    I really hate being alone while I'm going somewhere, especially shopping or places with a lot of people. I always get a lot of looks when I'm out. I guess it's because of my style? With or without someone I get them but I feel so much more comfortable when I'm with someone rather...

    Not Very Often

    I don't go out often at all but when I do I live it up. Last time I got an awesome gold bowl from a framing and art gallery and had delicious Mexican food and a Corona from El Pitayo. I also splurged on a feather boa, a clinique face lotion, and rhinestone hoop earrings. The...

    I Hate It!!

    I hate being so dependent on other people!  I want to be able to go to the park without needing my friends to go with me.  I want to be able to go into a store without having to tail behind my mom the whole time.  I want to be able to go for a walk...

    But Am Trying To Get Better....

    It has taken me up until the age of 25 to even walk into a coffee shop alone. I guess I just get paranoid and believe that people are thinking or saying "Look at that loser on her own.". I have even been to the cinema on my own but that made me feel weirdly sad. I go shopping all...
