Basically, I get off (not in that way) on having dinner alone with a candle, a glass of wine and a book in a cozy restaurant. (Oddly, I enjoy this more when I'm traveling, but not so much here at home). I treasure solo road-trips with my dog and my ipod. I prefer to run alone than with a friend. And I'll never forget the first time I went to a movie by myself - pure bliss.
That said, my evil (or perhaps, my better) gemini twin also loves parties, dinners, trips and all around good times with the people I love the most in the world - my family and amazing friends. So no, I'm not some kind of loner hermit.
Last night, for the second time in my life, I went to a concert by myself. This, I can say is not nearly as much fun as all my other fav things to do alone. But my take on life is to never stop yourself from doing the things you want because you don't have a companion, partner, friend or lover with you - whether it's travel, a movie, dinner or a concert. I'm incredibly happy that I pushed myself to buy that ticket to see Metric at Massey Hall last night. While it's always way more fun to dance and sing with friends, Emily rocked that stage so hard that she had me dancing with her. Not only was I in a moment with her, but we all were. Together.
