Yep! Sometimes you just can't depend on someone to go with you, especially if they don't want to see the movie or go to that restaurant.  I have a very independent streak in me so I can fly solo!  But it is more fun with someone, I will admit!

Since my husband passes away (2013) and daughter and granddaughter who'd lived with us since the g.d. was only 16 mos., ten y.o. when they moved (2016), have done MOST things by myself.  Not a problem as I need a lot of "alone time" usually, albeit kitty-boy is usually not far away when I'm home, but - the most out of sync thing I did, now months ago, was go to a movie...!  Do not remember what the movie was, apparently it didn't make much of an impression, but-I neither fell asleep nor was distracted by conversation...not a bad experience after all!

I haven't quite mastered eating alone. But will do it over starving. I am a people watcher.  I am fine going to the movies alone.  I can see anything I want.

Yes! I enjoy going to matinees. When I eat out alone, I take along a book to read.

Sometimes, but I don't like it, I enjoy company.

Yes.  As a widow, all of my good friends are married.  If I want to do something, I do it alone.  At first it was very difficult.  Now, it's just 2nd nature.

Absolutely! I have friends that have not retired yet and can go out at night or weekends but I don't mind going to a matinee by myself on a summer afternoon or grabbing a meal by myself. I frequently grab a meal by myself and always take my kindle with me. I love reading while having a meal, relaxing for me. But it feels rude if hubby or friends are with me so I sneak off occasionally just so I can dine alone with a book.

I love going out to eat by myself...have met a lot of interesting people and great conversations.  Going to the movies is great, too!  If I don't like the movie, I can leave!  This is my alone time since my daughter and I live together, along with two grandchildren...not my daughter's kids.  Try it, you'll like it!!!
