Me, Myself And I

Raft3r can’t bear to be alone.

I can’t eat in a restaurant by myself.

I won’t be caught dead going to a party without a date.

While some are comfortable with the idea of watching a movie by themselves, I can’t bring myself to do that.

I can’t go to the mall without company.

I won’t travel by myself.

One is such a lonely number. But being alone is the TRUE test of how strong a person is.

Ganns said...

That's probably why we should have dinner on Thursday. ;) Your Christmas present will probably have to be replaced. LOL

There are several activities you can TRY doing alone; you might enjoy them. Masarap mag-isa, you can change your plans on the last second without thinking of someone's feelings. Basta. Take it from me. Wahaha!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Me, too... I can't treat myself in a special place all by myself. I used to go with my best friend most of the times.
Although sometimes we have to do things on our own... (sigh)

Raft3r said...

the scud, Nyahaha. You're welcome.

ganns, Dinner sounds fine.

andy briones, Baka people person kaya talaga underneath that cold exterior mo. Hehe

judayski, I love to touch myself. Does that count? Nyahaha

hi! i'm grace, Best friends rock!

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Di ko talaga kaya manood ng sine mag-isa. Baka kasi ma-molest ako, eh. Hehe

Wendy said...

Ibig sabihin isa kang people person hehehe.

Watched a movie by myself once. Tinabihan ako ng feeling ko manyak kasi daming vacant seats tas sa kin pa tumabi. Lipat ako agad ng seat.I never watched a movie alone since then.

I don't think I'm brave enough to travel alone too. Parang mas masaya may kadaldalan lagi.

Raft3r said...

wendy, Nyahaha. Lapitin ka pala ng manyak, eh. Hehe

prinsesamusang said...

wow this is disturbing. if you cannot do all of those, i on the other hand revel in doing the activities that you listed. i love being alone and just listening to myself brings me clarity. of course i appreciate company from time to time.

Raft3r said...

prinsesamusang, Disturbing ba? Hehe

len said...

I am ambivalent; so there are times when I want to be alone and there are moments I want to be surrounded by friends.

But I just hate eating alone the most. :p

Pre kaya ko na mag-isa, pero yang linya na yan di ko ata kinaya. grabeee!

eden said...

sometimes i dont feel unsafe thats why i dont go out alone especially on a trip. But when it comes to shopping i want to do it alone. it makes me to concentrate and find what I want quickly.

Raft3r said...

len, Di ko talaga kaya. Siguro sa future. Hehe

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Nyahaha. Peksman! Dami manyak sa sinehan. Hehe

eden, Shopping talaga?! Hehe

from hitokirihoshi_kawaii: "But being alone is the TRUE test of how strong a person is."

Hala ka.. hehehe..

ako naman, i've tried doing those na solo flight. id rather watch movie alone kc sometimes if you have kasama, super chika2 lang and you can't concentrate on the movie na.. but the traveling and party gatecrashing have to be marami para super saya! da va?..

Raft3r said...

bena, Sakin ang quote nayon kaya! Hehe

Coriander Dreams said...

I guess the more you do it the more you will get used to it. :)

Pero I think mas madali gawin sa ibang bansa kesa sa Manila. No offense whatsoever. Just an observation. I'm guilty of this too when I'm home in MNL. But here, okay lang. I guess walang choice dito minsan wala talagang makakasama! Hehe.

Hope all is well with you!

hitokirihoshi_kawaii said...

natawa naman talaga ako sa entry dito hahaha.

sorry raft3r mas napansin ni Bena ang pamatay na quote sa akin. hahaha! manood ka na lang ng sine mag-isa para mas paniwalaan ka sa linyang yan.

joke-joke

the donG said...

ako rin bihira nang bumyahe mag isa. pero astig nga ang magbackpack alone. gagawin ko ulit yon within june.

Raft3r said...

coriander dreams, Alam mo tama ka. I watched The X-Files: I Want To Believe ng mag-isa sa Baltimore. Hehe

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Madaya nga! Hehe. Akin yon! Akin! Nyahaha

the dong, Different strokes for different folks. Ika nga.

Lawstude said...

most of the time i travel alone. it is where i had control of things to see and what to do. mas maingat nga lang dapat pag nag-iisa.

Raft3r said...

lawstude, Quality time with yourself. Nice.

pete said...

call me. may magandang balita ako sayo.

Raft3r said...

pete, Exciting to! Hehe

brainteaser said...

There are times I prefer being on my own...

Gusto ko yung last sentence. :-)

Musta na?

Raft3r said...

brainteaser, Hey! Kaw, kamusta? Ako eto. Busy. Hehe

ar-dee-see said...

what about going to the CR alone when you need to drop off some logs?

Raft3r said...

ar-dee-see, That I can do by myself. Hehe

Bernadette Anne said...

I never would have guessed this about you, Raft3r! Most commitment-phobics usually love being alone! True, they want someone tobe with them but only on their own terms and their own time.

Before Eric, I did things on my own, except go to the cinema!

In response to your last statement, "One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do. Two can be as bad as one but it's never as lonely as the number one."

Raft3r said...

bernadette anne, Right on. Hehe. Eto pa di mo alam sakin. Had a crush on you when we first met. Nyahaha

Bernadette Anne said...

Really? So it was true? Hehehe! Someone in your section told me actually but I thought that person was pulling my leg! Thanks, belatedly!

Is it true that you like morenas but you always end up with mestizas? :-)

Raft3r said...

bernadette anne, Totoo. How'd you know that? Hehe. Wala pa akong morenang gf. =(
