I will go buy stuff on my own (Best Buy, Wal-Mart, the mall, etc.) and go to fast-food restaurants on my own, but I wouldn't go to a place like Applebee's or something on my own.

I've got no problem walking alone.

I'd never go to a bar or club by myself.

I go everywhere alone.

Yeah downtown, the mall or wherever I need to go. I've been to sporting events by myself as well. I normally do it when there are not many people around because I can't handle all the people looking at me and getting in the way etc.

I wouldn't go out to dinner, to the movies, or to a club or bar by myself though.

I go everywhere alone except for grocery shopping cos I go with my siblings. I go to the movies alone, eat alone, shopping alone etc. It's lots of fun and nothing to feel ashamed about.

I go to the shops alone, but I usually get stressed out and think people are looking at me. I prefer to go places with people, because I have trouble making decisions and feel much more self concious when I'm alone. I don't think that people will judge me because I'm alone, but I feel like they will notice I look anxious or indecisive. I go to work, uni etc alone, but that's OK because it's very structured and there are people there when I get there.

I have a problem going alone also. When I am alone my mind isn't occupied and starts to think ****. I start to feel anxious and start how I look or walk stupid, I start to think what others are thinking about me and so on. I am really bad at going out alone.

Everywhere. Shopping or walking is ok, at the movies I always feel like people are looking at me and thinking I'm sad, but s***w them I go anyway. I will go to a bar alone if I'm in a good enough mood and I psyche myself up for it, and I have gone to clubs alone but never really enjoyed it; it's such hard work.

I go out alone and get paranoid that people are looking at me and judging me and whispering about me.
Like, "who is that guy alone?"
Then I feel like stores are watching that I don't steal, lol.

I've gone to the bar alone once to study. (yeah I know, it was a weds night or something and it was pretty empty)...a woman touched my arm and asked me to watch her stuff. 99% she wasn't trying to hit on me but 1%...:).

A lot of famous, desirable men from movies have been loners.
James Bond?
Have you seem American Gangster? Denzel Washington's character is a loner. Hell, lots of characters Denzel plays are, and many women find him sexy.


I like being alone because I feel judged all the time.

Not if I can help it. I hate to be looked at and having another person makes me feel a little more guarded.

Umm shopping, errands and things like that. I don't think I've ever gone out by myself to do something social, it would have to be with a friend. I've never gone clubbing and if I did decide to it would be with friends.

No. I haven't been out alone since December 2007 (except for one emergency last September for about 5 minutes).

I go to the mall alone. I don't especially enjoy it - I just do it to get out among other human beings.

I've eaten out alone ONE time. It was in a crowded restaurant and felt so awkward. I was alone at a four-seater table with direct line of sight of people waiting at the door. I did not enjoy that meal.

Doing things alone can be depressing. I'd rather have someone else to do things with. Being out alone just reminds me how alone I really am.
