    Hey guys

    It's the summer holiday. You're pretty much fed up of doing nothing but going on the internet. You really want to go back to uni and get pissed, but you have to keep on passing time somehow. You know no one around the area, and you want to do something about it. What do you do?

    I could go out on a night out by myself, but then I'm the sort of person who would feel weird doing that. Do people my age (~19) actually go out by themselves, or is it just the 40+ guys at bars who've just been divorced? If you do go out on your own, what do you do? Do you try and make friends? With people in groups or on their own? Do you just talk to no one and get absolutely wasted?

    Help needed - many thanks,
    Aaron

    Em i wouldn't, but then again I'm just 17, so i guess were at different life stages... I suppose if you really wanted theres no stopping you however, and honestly people probably wouldn't care. Although, why can't you just get drunk in your bedroom by yourself like i do when my friends aren't going out lol

    I doubt many other people will be judging anyway, they'll probably be concentrating on their own thing so don't worry really. I've gone out of my own a few times & got chatting to people in the process which was quite nice. You can still have a good night going solo!

    theres nothing weird about going out alone, you'll do a lot of that soon when you're in you're 20s onwards. Part of being adult, stop thinking like a child now

    go browse around places you want to see and talk to people in an open situation to talk (go to LUSH)

    Most likely you wont get into any Clubs if you are Alone. Clubbing is actually a really bad way to meet people unless your really good looking. Its different if your in groups or constantly meeting friends of friends. If you go alone you will be disappointed. Try joining a gym class or something

    Done it a few times, it's not that bad. Especially if you're personable and can sort of squeeze yourself into a squad/buddy up with other people there..

    Overall though, I'd say it's better to go with friends.
