I learned how to go to movies alone when every Christmas I would be alone. My son would be with his dad, my SO would travel to DC to be with his family (I wouldn’t go, since my son was only with his dad for 24 hours and too young to stay home alone). So, on Christmas day, I’d take myself to dinner and a show (but always respected myself afterward).
learned to look forward to it, too, since both son and SO would end up talking me into things like : * Howard the Duck, Judge Dread, * or * Stormship Troopers * :rolleyes:
After I split with my ex, I used to go to movies by myself all the time. I actually sort of miss it - I’d see all the movies I wanted to see, when I wanted to see them. Nowadays, with SO in tow, I seem to miss about half the ones I’d like to see.
BTW, we went to see The Exorcist last night. Not nearly as scary as I expected it to be, but very very good. I’d go see it, if I were you.
