Is this just a little sad?

I'm single. Would I look a little sad (and stand out!!) if I went to the cinema on my own? I've nobody to go with and REALLY want to see this particular film. I usually just wait until they come out on Sky, but this one is really calling me. Would you go in your own?

I've been to the cinema lots of times on my own. No one batted an eyeball.

I always go on my own! I love my own company!

I do this quite often. I am married but we have young dc a d no babysitter.

Just go!

Whatshallidonowpeople Thu 08-Feb-18 21:13:09

I've been on my own too. No one cares

JoyceDivision Thu 08-Feb-18 21:13:30

You'll be fine. I enjoy going by myself!

cestlavielife Thu 08-Feb-18 21:13:43

No one else cares.
I Go plenty times on my own

No one will even notice you're alone.

Go!

I go on my own and I’m married. It’s more enjoyable than dh asking me what’s going on every 15 minutes or so 😄

Only if the film is the new 50 Shades

I would totally go to the cinema, restaurant, gig, whatever on my own, and have done plenty of times. Why not?! Enjoy yourself!

WhatWouldLeslieKnopeDo Thu 08-Feb-18 21:14:41

Do it. I love going places on my own! smile

LloydColeandtheCoconuts Thu 08-Feb-18 21:14:54

I love going to the cinema by myself. Not sad at all. Don’t worry about it grin

FissionChips Thu 08-Feb-18 21:15:17

Do it!

MycatsaPirate Thu 08-Feb-18 21:15:40

I would. I've been to a gig on my own as no one liked the same band. I ended up being 'looked after' by a load of guys over from NI who made sure I got safely into a taxi afterwards.

Go!

There are always people who go alone. You're sat in the dark not meant to be talking to anyone anyway...

I've only done this since having DS but it's actually lovely, no arguments about what film to see, as much snack stuff as you want and no one to share it with!

Gekkoforprimeminister Thu 08-Feb-18 21:16:35

I've done this loads of times, nobody cares, it's totally fine.

DayKay Thu 08-Feb-18 21:17:35

Just go. I’ve been on my own a few times. It’s absolutely fine.

sakura06 Thu 08-Feb-18 21:17:40

I go on my own quite often! Often my DH and I see the same film in the same week, but separately as we have no babysitter! No one will care, honestly. Enjoy your film.

BetseyTrotwood Thu 08-Feb-18 21:17:41

I get the urge to do it once in a while OP. No one interrupting and munching in my ear - bliss.

norfolkenclue Thu 08-Feb-18 21:17:47

Thank you 💐. I'll just pull my big girl pants on and go then...it's half term next week so I can go to an early show and hopefully it will be quiet. First time for everything 😊 xx

Just adding to everyone else who's said they've been on their own. I wear comfy clothes and snuggle up with popcorn or some other treat, I've never felt weird or like I stood out!
