    Let's Me Watch the Movie

    Pretty much anytime I go to the movies with someone else, it's a guy. And guys tend to try and get all close with me and distract me from the movie, which isn't bad if he's cute. But most times I go I'm by myself. I really don't mind. I actually quite like it. I can have all the...

    NOT Afraid to Go It Alone

    I started going to the movies by myself after my second child was born. His day care would have "parents night out" once a month and, since my husband usually has to work Friday nights, I would just go alone. I love to go to the movies and for years would never go...

    I Love the Time Alone..

    I love to listen to the people laughing or reacting to the movie.  Once I got over my fear of being alone, it felt wonderful to go to places by myself. I like not having to wait for anybody or be stood up. So I am my own companion and I am enough. I go to restaurants...

    There Are A Few Reasons Why I Do

    I have been going to the movies by myself since the fourth grade. My Mom was a case worker and often had to work overtime on the weekends when my day care was closed so she would drop me off at the movies. As I was a teen my group of friends went on a weekly basis but I would...

    I Would Do It Again & Again & Again.

      The 1st time I experienced this, it felt really awkward.  I asked myself if I could take a step further into a realm which was new for me to do. I was going to movies alone once a week to reward myself for not smoking.  Being a single parent with...

    Only Sometimes

    While I generally don't go to movies alone, I'm ok with doing so. If I want to see a movie, I'm going to see it. If its with a friend or two (or, in some cases ten. lol) that's fantastic. If not, that's fine as well. Basically, I'm not going to limit my cinematic adventures to...

    Almost Always Go Alone

    I started going to the movies alone around 2004 after I realized that being friendless and single was the rule rather than the exception in my life. It was then that I read a book on seizing the day and getting all you could out of life. I came to the conclusion that whatever I...

    I just like the experience of watching a film alone, which is just as well my friends don't share my interests on foreign films.

    I like goint to movies alone for many reasons. My friends are too busy, we rarely could find a time, they've watched it or I just happened to be near a cinema and feel like watching a movie. The only thing I hate about some people is that they talked on the PHONE ...
