Taking a Step I Forgot I wanted to Take

When Husband was on his Hong Kong trip a few weeks ago, I decided to take myself out on a date. It was lovely. :)

On my way to dinner and the movie, I didn’t even realize that I would be completing one item on my 101 in 1001 list!

44. Go to the movies… ALONE!

I have wanted to see The Social Network since they announced its release. Unfortunately, Husband had NO desire to see it –which kind of left me out of luck. Spending money to see an expensive movie in the theatre is not good when one of the couple doesn’t want to see that particular movie!

I thought I’d have to wait until it came out on Netflix, but all the details fell into place when I realized I could take myself on a date. It was wonderful!

As much as I love my husband (and I do! A lot!), taking myself out to dinner and a movie almost made up for being a single lady for two weeks.


  1. Good for you! I used to go to the movies by myself all the time in law school. I loved it! Thanks for reminding me I need to do this again. (Especially since my husband never lets me pick out the movie I want to see and hogs all the popcorn!) There's definitely something to be said for being old enough, confident enough and secure enough in yourself to be ok with being alone for a while. I think it's fantastic!

  2. I have gone to the movies by myself twice and I LOVE it!!!! It’s time for just me!!! :)

  3. Didn't you love it?! I'm obsessed with that movie.

    And now i want to do this!!! Next election cycle.... Sigh.
