Basically strictly come dancing is at my local arena tonight.
I really want to go (and tickets left )
Nobody wants to go,not even if I buy the tickets.
I’m a 32 year old woman and here I am scared to go in case people think I’m a looser...would you just go?
Or skip?

Go, I’m jealous!

So you're in Newcastle? Maybe you can find someone on here in the same situation who wants to go and go together?

donners312 Tue 23-Jan-18 13:09:34

I would think you were confident not a loser!

Go!! (very jealous!!)

Louise3445 Tue 23-Jan-18 13:10:06

I am yeah,they are at metro radio arena tonight.

You are 32. Don't you think that you are a little bit old to be caring about what other people think?

KatnissMellark Tue 23-Jan-18 13:10:46

Definitely go!

Louise3445 Tue 23-Jan-18 13:10:47

I know I’m stupid for even caring.
I spend my life worrying what others think.

Go! Enjoy yourself. You'll be kicking yourself watching it on TV, wishing you were there. Have fun!

Go. The SCD tour is brilliant. Will anyone even notice you are on your own. They will be too busy watching the show.

RoseWhiteTips Tue 23-Jan-18 13:11:57

Everybody worries what other people think even those who tell you it’s odd.hmm


MikeUniformMike Tue 23-Jan-18 13:12:26

Go. You'll be fine. Enjoy it.

Louise3445 Tue 23-Jan-18 13:12:59

It’s on tomorrow (2 shows) so I can always book tomorrow night and I have 24 hours to get my confidence up !!

thegrinningfox Tue 23-Jan-18 13:13:05

Go! Def!

Go! Absolutely. And once you e done it the first time, it's actually quite a liberating feeling. I remember with some shame now, the first time I sat in a coffee shop alone. I bigged it up and felt nervous going it. Felt brilliant after though. It was only a small thing in the grand scheme but if you feel self-conscious it's amazing. If I ever see someone alone at something big like a concert or whatever, my only thought is "good on you".

Grilledaubergines Tue 23-Jan-18 13:15:40

Don't book tomorrow night as that gives you time to talk yourself out of it. Strike whilst the iron is hot.

Sparklingbrook Tue 23-Jan-18 13:15:45

If I was in Newcastle I would come with you. grin

TBH going to a show alone means no waiting for anyone, no worrying if they are enjoying it, straight home after. There are definitely plus points!

The questions isn't whether you'd be a looser but if you care.

Sparklingbrook Tue 23-Jan-18 13:20:56

Doing stuff on your own is great. I hate going shopping with other people now and i love sitting in a cafe or a pub on my own.

I do loads of stuff on my own by choice. grin

MissionItsPossible Tue 23-Jan-18 13:21:10

Loser, not looser! Two seperate words!

Willswife Tue 23-Jan-18 13:22:30

Go. I remember going to the cinema alone for the first time, felt odd before I went but it was great!

Go and enjoy yourself!

morningtoncrescent62 Tue 23-Jan-18 13:24:11

Do it, OP. I go to loads of stuff on my own, including holidays as well as theatre, cinema etc. The first couple of times I was convinced everyone was pointing and talking about me, but after a while I realised that they really aren't interested, they're there to enjoy themselves. And if anyone is by any chance thinking I'm a loser, well, let them think it - their opinion doesn't make any difference to me.

I'm with the pp who said go tonight rather than give yourself time for second thoughts. Enjoy!
