You ever do stuff alone that tends to be more socially acceptable to do in group? I was bored at home and decided to go to the pub on my own because fuck it. Ain't nobody out on a Monday and I feel like drinking and not festering in my own futility at home.

Sitting in a corner of the pub right now with pint in hand. Feel like a bit of a Billy No Mates but phuck it lol.

So any UGers do the same?

Going out to eat by yourself is awesome.

I wouldn't...ever.


I remember going to the cinema once and a stereotypical forever alone nerd guy game in with his little drink and popcorn and sat by himself watching the movie . I don't usually have feelings but that just got to me and i promised myself i would never end up that bad.

Pretty much this but it's fun when there's a group.

Everything.

Walks, drinks, laughs, discussions, sex.

Who needs people anyway?

Love to sit at home by myself with a strong drink and dick about on the internet or watch gaki no tsukai.
#9
yeah, i go to gigs and restaurants and camping by myself.
i do those thing in groups too but its a whole different experience by yourself.
and you tend to meet new people too because you don have to be the person you are expected to be. you can play with other personalities.
plus its a nice treat.

I do stuff alone quite often. I interact with enough people at work. When I'm not at work I want me time, alone time, nothing to do with other people. People say I am flaky about coming out to social occasions. That's exactly why. I have lots of people that don't like me because I will ditch them on a whim just so I can be alone at home playing or listening to music in my little world of bliss. I've had plenty of clingy girlfriends that freak out and take it personally when they realize I don't want to be around them 24/7.

Of course that can backfire too in the "getting to know" stage because they think I'm all mysterious and playing hard to get. No I just want to sit on my ass and play guitar all day, eat nachos and drink beer.

Social things I'm obligated to (band practices or family events) I will go to but I always have this nagging anxiety to get away. I want to play on my own, play my own music not the song we've got going on now. Even if I really like the song I can't help but want to just play something else. No I don't want to visit and talk about useless things with my family. I want to eat an awesome holiday meal, have some beer, take an awesome nap, speak briefly with everybody then drive home.


I don't go to movies much but mostly because I don't like the pricing on them anymore. Let me see a movie for like 7 bucks. Not 15 or 20 because it's in 3D IMax surround wankery. That and every preview I see in the theater will spoil whatever that movie is.

I go to certain hole in the wall bars/pubs to get away and be hidden. Seriously.

I used to go on week/two week long backpacking trips alone in the mountains.

Yeah. I nearly always go to gigs alone unless its a band my mates like more than I do. I like to just go have a beer alone most of the time. Even eating out or seeing movies alone is OK.

Shit, I'm a loner. Ah well. People suck anyway.

If someone offers me to tag along, I let him/her tag along.

If nobody does, then I fly solo.

My wallet goes on cruise-control though.

I skate by myself because none of my friends do it.
I play guitar by myself at the moment because my band is to lazy to get together.

I tend to avoid social contact, so yes. Eating alone is okay, and lone sex is cool.

I love hanging out with people, when I'm alone for whatever reason I just find new people. One thing I do I think counts though, after a few years of the 'wingman' approach to pulling in clubs, I've discovered other guys cramp my style. I go with a couple of female friends who I can tactically ditch these days. Hit rate up.
Dude, where's my band?

Yeah it is pretty sad. A girl I knew from school is cleaning the tables around me whilst occasionally noticing me sitting here with my fifth pint. She probably thinks I'm some sort of leper.

Drinking. Movies. Dinner. Drinking.
EDIT: I also don't really understand why drinking alone is so frowned upon. I like getting hammered, but I don't always like going out. So I stay home and drink.

Make an awkward joke to say hi?

It usually plays out like this:

Me: "Hey friends, you wanna go to the pub/restaurant/movies/zoo/strip club today?"

Friends: "Nah, not really."

Me: "Okay then."

And then I go by myself because if I feel like going to the zoo, I'm gonna go to the goddamn zoo, goddammit!

Seeing movies by yourself is 10X more enjoyable.

If I'm out with friends or a girl, I want to actually hangout and talk. Just sitting there looking at a screen is not something I need a person next to me to do.

Plus, you can just sit back, and enjoy the movie more.

I can respect that.

I do pretty much everything I do in groups by myself as well, and oftentimes I enjoy it more by myself. I don't know how I got to be this introverted. I enjoy the hell out of eating at a restaurant by myself. Sometimes I bring a book.

I already have a girlfriend mate. It's just awkward 'cause she doesn't know me well enough to know that I have a life. For all she knows, I'm an alcoholic. All this just 'cause I was bored and felt like drinkin'.

Sometimes it's nice to get out of the house and simply be around other people, even if you're not interacting with them.

I prefer not to do most things alone, only things I will do alone is go for walks or drive out into this clearing I know in the woods to watch stars. The latter seems like something you'd do by yourself anyway though.
#35
there is no shame in going for a drink on your own. actually it's a great way to meet people. if i go to a bar alone a bunch of beers later i'm making new (drunk) friends. also it's easyer to pick up girls if nobody there knows you.

also sometimes i get high on my own. i walk into the fields, sit down, put random stuff on fire and smoke weed. i love the feeling when there is nobody around for miles and you can do whatever the **** you want.

I don't actively go out of my way to do group activities alone, my case is more one of usually being on my own and not really caring.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.

Whenever I see those type of guys it literally breaks my heart..... . I sometimes go bmxing by myself but not all the time. It's so much more fun in a group b/c we're able to bounce tips and stuff off of each other.

Pretty much this is what I'm like. I know it seems like I care 'cause I made a thread but I just thought it was an interesting topic. Group activities I normally do with a group but I don't really care much if I'm on my own.

Unless the girl from school from school works at the place where I'm alone...
