I love being alone in my house. I love being alone on retreat. I love to take walks alone. But I don't do as well being alone in social situations. I have rarely eaten alone in a restaurant. I have gone to one movie alone. And I made a dumb decision on which movie to watch that one time. I don't like scary movies. At all. But the one time I went to the movie alone, I watched Fatal Attraction. Scary movies are even scarier when watched alone - with no one beside us who can distract us, laugh at fear with us, or comfort us. After the movie, I went home where I was alone. Alone and scared. I checked every room in the house to make sure that no one was hiding and waiting to attack me. Alone is sweet, especially if potential company could be a whacked out, possessive "other woman" who may kill your pet rabbit!
