I don't have any friends anymore really. I go with my guy once in awhile. Most of the time I go it alone. I can watch whatever I want to.

I do this quite often considering I simply love going to the movies. I go alone more often than with friends. With friends it takes more planning and I usually don't care to go through the planning and such since I go so often.

Also, considering how most of my friends at the moment have girlfriends except me it makes things awkward if it becomes a 3rd/5th wheel type of situation and I try my best to avoid that (who doesn't...)

I've gotten past the awkward going to the movies alone feeling and I really don't think it's a big deal anymore. I think it's overblown at some times I'm surprised it comes up so often with other people when they say "I didn't want to go alone to the movies!" when asking them if they saw this or that. When you see someone going solo to the movies it's pretty obvious they just wanted to go see a movie they were interested in, nothing crazy about that.

Is it sad that I actually prefer to see movies by myself? It's just my little escape when I go along, like a retreat. Well, other than horror films. I love to see those in a big group.

I've noticed that during the afternoons I see a lot more people going by themselves. And not just socially awkward looking people, these are normals.

Weekday afternoons are usually the best time to go see movies. Even on opening day movies that would generally be sold out are totally empty during the day.

Which is one of the reasons I like going by myself. I would hate going to the movies with friends sometimes because they would always wanna talk and joke around while I'm trying to watch the movie, especially if it's a movie they've already seen and I haven't.

Well one thing is for sure, it is not the best place to go on a first date. I try to go to the blockbusters with my bro in law and nephew. I actually went to see SR 3 times alone. How many would admit that?........

I mostly go alone because I don't have any friends. Girls usually don't want to see good movies, either, like Django Unchained. I play the game for dates or whatever but I could care less about most of the crap people like to see...

For those of you feeling awkward about going alone, watch Jackie Brown. Max Cherry goes to the movies by himself constantly, and he was one cool mofo.

There seems to be no middle ground, at least with the people I know. Either people have no problems going alone or people can't bare the thought of doing so.

Me? I'm too old to give a s***. If I want to see a movie and nobody is game to go, I go.

Fun story time about going alone!

I went to the midnight showing of Matrix Reloaded and the place was packed. I got the seat that was the end seat of the last row in that front section. I'm drunk. I'm sitting there patiently waiting for the movie to start and this woman walks in with a boombox and a mic, which I thought was strange.

She walks over and plugs in the boombox about five feet from me. She turns on the mic and all of a sudden I hear "HELLO WE ARE LIVE ON 97-WHATEVER AT THE MATRIX RELOADED PREMIERE BLAH BLAH" and my inebriation immediately got the better of me and I thought, "oh dear god, she's about to stick this mic in my face because I'm the closest person to her".

Thankfully - for all parties involved - she did not. Would not have went well

I see movies by myself often and have for years. Some people absolutely need to be with other people to feel comfortable but I don't, maybe because I grew up in a fairly isolated area. When I was little the only other kids around were my siblings and occasionally cousins, so if you wanted to play or go somewhere you were usually on your own. Therefore it doesn't bother me a bit to do any and everything by myself, from going to movies to shopping to going on vacation.

This Friday I'll see Iron Man 3 by myself, which works out better because I can catch a 2D show instead of courting a migraine with 3D. After that I'll go with my brother and make him spring for IMAX tickets since that's how he wants to see it. We don't talk during movies but we do tend to punch each other in the arm when something good happens.

Throughout the years, I've gone to see movies by myself. The last one was The Dark Knight Rises. I like going by myself. It's just a nice way of getting out and getting some "me" time.

My friends and I are going to see Iron Man on Thursday night. We are going to a 3D showing. I've never seen a 3D movie in theaters and I'm concerned of getting a migraine or nauseous.

You're not supposed to masturbate during the trailers.

I have no problem going to see movies by myself. All too often, I just didn't feel like trying to get a group together, so I'd go alone after work or to a matinee. Now I go with my wife to movies, since she doesn't think I should have to go alone, plus I think it helps her when there's a chick flick she really wants to see and doesn't want to go alone. Well we did see all those comic book movies this summer, so going to a Twilight movie shouldn't be a big deal. It's okay though, we usually try to find theaters that serve alcohol, so it helps the experience a little.

I have a lot of family members in the area I live so anytime I mention a movie a bunch of them want to go, that's my thing. I have people to go with, but I don't wanna.
