Hi,

Whats your advice to people going out by themselves? Im a girl and I want to enjoy things every other person does. But it is hard to find friends because I am getting bullied at university (a whole other story) but yh I usually go out by myself most days. I’ve been more interested in sports and I want to go swimming. Obviously have no one to go with so what do u think ur advice is for women swimming alone or running alone. Any precautions I should take to avoid worst case scenarios?
Thank you

Do you drive? If you drive to the leisure centre / gym then swimming shouldn't be much of a problem.

You may want to join local running clubs to find other women who will run with you, especially at night.

Seeing as you mentioned Uni in your OP, if you live in Uni halls and there's a pool on campus it should be OK walking too. Just make sure you keep warm though, especially in winter!

That's not ideal, but I suppose if public transport is safe or you can cycle to the pool it'd still be OK?

As long as you can there at the venue, it should be fine. I know plenty of women who go to swim by themselves.

Hi there.

Have you looked into whether your university has a running/ sports society? This is not only a great way to do something you enjoy but it also enables you to meet other students who may be a similar age to you who also share similar interests with you.

I used to both swim and run on my own (often very late at night) when I was at uni and it was fine. Swimming shouldn't be an issue at all and with running, just be sensible and try to do it during the day in places where there are other people.
