I go to the cinemas by myself?

I always go to see movies by myself and it also means I get to eat whatever I want at my pleasure. The downside is that I see couples cuddling up to eachother and laughing so yeah... That kinda makes me feel like a lonely loser.

Is It Normal?

  • Normal. The mall near me has a movie theater and I used to watch movies alone. Afterwards it was off to the food court to get a cinnamon pretzel and relax. Then after that, I'd spend a few hours walking around the mall and shopping. I miss doing that shit. XD

  • I don't go to the flicks by myself. Unless I'm on a 'mission', it seems like a waste of time and money if I'm not doing it with people.

      • Yeah, like if I'm teaching a class or studying something connected to the film, or if a close friend tells me that it's their favourite film and keeps quoting it and I want to know what it's about, then my mission is to watch it for all that I can glean from it!

  • If you wanna go alone, then why bothered by something else. Doesn't make any sense. Unless you are in to inferiority complex there is no point getting bothered by anything else when it's totally your choice at the frist place.

    • Smh... do you understand people's emotions so little, or have you been in a relationship so long you've forgotten what it's like to be in OP's position, or do you just not like people?

      OP wants the cinematic experience without being reminded of how lonely he is. When he sees people cuddling he envies their happy relationship because he doesn't have one and wants one/feels sexually frustrated with no socially acceptable means of relief/ is reminded of a painful situation that happened to him, etc. Plus, in the cinema he is in a room where he has paid to sit there and be entertained. Having to sit in a room with something you hate, spoils the fun. What's abnormal about that?

  • I do stuff like that all the time. Used to before pandemic and other weird stuff anyway. Honestly I just don't find it weird to hang out by myself, it just feel liberating; that is, if you omit paranoia of impending doom anyway, lol. So long as I'm not gonna have a heaving panic attack then being a loner is pretty nice. Dab pens help a lot. :D

  • Been there. You’re not a loser. You just haven’t found your companion yet. Hint: before the movie, strike up a conversation with a lady about the movie. Buy her some popcorn and see where it goes.

  • I used to go alone sometimes and with friends other times but I'd sit apart from them because I hated when they spoke during the movies! But with a date or boyfriend I'd sit together of course, that would be weird.

    Going alone to the movies doesn't make you a lonely loser. It makes you an independent cool person.

    Only thing that can make you a lonely loser is being a lonely loser.
