    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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.

    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 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...

    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...
