Not to veer off-topic, of course, just wanted to let you know that situations like the one you described happen often in our circle of friends. It should go without saying that, for the most part, when Byron goes out without me or vice versa, we are with people of our same gender. On occasion (actually a little more often than that) each of us has been known to hang out, sans the other, with each other’s friends. For instance, I went to a home show with his best friend, Jeff, not too long ago and Byron has been known to take a few of my girlfriends for motorcycle rides. It’s never been a big deal for us, our friends or their spouses/SOs… just wanted to let you know that somewhere, someone is hanging out with person of the opposite sex who just happens to NOT be their SO… just so you don’t feel like you’re the ONLY ONE.
BTW, to get back on topic, I like going to movies alone, too. Often, it’s the only way I’ll get to see something I really want to see, rather than something we’ve “agreed” on.
Veni, Vidi, Visa … I came, I saw, I bought.
