What do you hate to do alone?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Neurotica : One Thread

Things I don't like to do by myself: - Shopping
Honestly, shopping alone stinks. I like having someone else's opinion, and I like to give my opinion. Sadly, very few of my friends enjoy shopping.
- Playing disc golf
This is a game best suited for pairs or groups of three and four. All my old disc buddies and I are incommunicado, but they're all cranked out freaks anyway. I could play with my cousins, but its too damned hard to get ahold of them.
- Going to the gym
Walking on a treadmill or sitting on a bike is boring. Even with a magazine to read. When I used to go with Andora the time pretty much flew by. Blah

I must be such a loner... it took me a while to think of something.

Eating alone sucks. Especially if you have to cook what you're eating, because you almost always have leftovers and yuck, who likes leftovers?

Drinking alone sucks, too. Nobody around to point out how wasted you are.

Eating Out.Movies.Parties.Getting drunk.Playing tennis.Or anyother sport for that matter.Sex (ya think about it!)

Ok Im weird, I have to go clothing shopping alone. I dont know why I just do. If it is shoping for anything else, I like a buddy.

I'm fond of doing just about everything alone. Heck, I even talk to myself.

I love eating alone. I usually shop alone (all my friends are male and easily embarassed, I can't see bringing Matt or Colin into a lingerie department while I look at underwear). I don't mind traveling alone, it means I can do things at my pace and do whatever I want to do without taking anyone else's needs into consideration. (Damn, that sounds selfish...)

But for all my love of doing things alone, I'm scared to death of actually *being* alone. I could never move somewhere where I don't already know someone. I was thrilled by the prospect when I went to college, but now...I just find it harder to meet people or something.

I don't mind going to the movies alone, but sometimes it bugs me that I have nobody to discuss the movie with after it's over. Same with seeing live music...

I guess the one thing I really don't like to do alone is take long car trips. The right companion can really make a vacation. The two long road trips I took would have been awful if I had been alone.

I like being alone when it is by choice.

Eating alone, sleeping alone, etc.--all that's okay by me.

When I have no choice but to be alone, I'm miserable.

I do not like going to bars or parties alone, nor do I enjoy going on roadtrips by myself (unless I'm going to meet someone somewhere). The whole point of bars and parties is to be sociable with your friends and maybe meet new people. It is not (in my mind) supposed to be all about meeting new people and maybe seeing a friend or two. I generally don't enjoy being dumped into the middle of a lot of new people I haven't met before because human beings generally are cliquish and generally aren't that nice. More accurately, I tend to be glommed onto by the one or two people in the room I'd least like to have anything to do with, which makes me uncomfortable, which prevents me from meeting anyone else, which means I miss out on meeting nice people and have a skewed perspective as a result. AT least I know this.

I stay in sometimes when there are fun things out there to do because I want to, and that's okay. But when I want to go out, there are some days when there's nothing going on, everyone's busy doing other things or whatever. That's when aloneness stinks.

I am remarkably like a cat...metaphorically speaking...no matter which side of the door I'm on, if I can't move the door by myself, I'm whiny.

What, no witty masturbation comments? Even though the question practically BEGS for one? Well if no one else wants to go low-brow, then neither shall I. (Must... conform... individuality... wilting...) ~J

Isn't masturbation something that IS fun to do alone, though?

yes sex alone is masterbation but I would have to choose sex over masterbation most of the time....

Parties (or any social-type thing). Hate to go alone.

Shopping: Sometimes I want help, but usually I like to be alone (so I can leave when I'm done, and not have to wait)

Actually most things I like better with people (assuming good people), except maybe random shopping trips and wandering around.

to play board games when
you're alone

Oh, I guess we don't have to answer all of your questions in that format, do we?

Watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer alone. My ex and I used to watch it and we bonded over it. Now there's no one I can discuss the finer points of the symbolism with. Also, walking into my apartment when I get home from work and it's dark and there's just me and my cats.
