A group of friends of mine recently asked me if I had plans for NYE.  I told them that I am watching my niece and nephew.  This is true, but another reason I didn't want to go is it is a NYE party and I would be the only one there without a date/someone kiss at midnight.  Although it would be a very small gathering, I would be the only one alone.

When was the last time you declined because you didn't want to go somewhere alone?

In those types of situations I  am never the third wheel, nor do would I allow my friends to be.  Sorry,CG.   You're better off at home anyway - too many dumbass drunk drivers on the road that night. 


that is true, it would be at least a 2 hr drive without traffic


So not worth it, especially on the Eve.

It has been probably close to a decade. I don't mind going places alone and even when I was single I always had someone willing to go to things with me. The closest I can think of was a Valentine's event back when I was in high school and as soon as I mentioned wanting to go and thinking of seeing if a close guy friend wanted to come with one of my ex boyfriends asked me instead.

I read these things and really have to pull myself back and remember that we come from completely different cultures.  We all may be "our cousins over the pond" but there are some very clear cultural or maybe social difference. .. In Scotland you kiss EVERYBODY, even the wee man just passing by..

We have met the enemy and he is us.

For several years I went out on my own to New Years Eve events, pubs, concerts. I bought a 36 concert yearly subscription with The Symphony Hall for 3 years on the trot, which I went to and enjoyed all by myself.

There is a difference between being alone and being lonely.

Just Relax and have Fun with it.

Never.  I grew up not having someone to accompany me to whatever I wanted to go to, because in primary school, there were long periods where I didn't have friends and in secondary school, they all lived on the other side of town.  Not wanting to miss out on all the fun I could find, I got used to going places alone pretty damn quickly.  These days if my friends want to go somewhere with me, all well and good, but if they don't for whatever reason, I still go and it doesn't bother me. 

Never open doors if you don't dare to walk on through ...

The Doc, myself and the kids are staying in.

Four years ago I was told by a young woman she was coming over to meet the new pups. We now have our own, twins (M&F).  NYE is hoping the Twins, The Resident Labradors, the Nanny are asleep, so we can celebrate in front of the fire.....

May everyone have fantastic New Year
