Do you want to attend a show? Are your friends (if any) uninterested? By the looks of it, you may have to walk into the wild, ALONE. However, ne vous inquiétez pas, which means don’t fret or worry, because my guide is going to change your concert going life… forever.
- “What will happen?”
- “Will I be okay?”
- “Is this how babies are made?”
Something to keep in mind is that regardless of whether or not you go with someone, there will be fears and concerns. Often people refer to this as “You’re sad that you’re going alone to a concert and are worried about possible circumstances anxiety.” Seriously, it can be a very stressful and worrisome experience. Recalling my first show alone, I couldn’t stop thinking of what would happen if my ticket didn’t register as valid, how people would treat me, or what if I’m trampled, stomped on, etc. Anything could happen really, but letting those thoughts consume you is just going drain you emotionally before you even arrive at the event.

With every pro there are usually going to be some cons, especially depending on the kind of person you find yourself to be, an optimist, pessimist, realist, etc. In my opinion, not wasting time worrying about another being’s life is relieving. Although, if you’re a caring, loving, compassionate person with a decent heart, then good for you. Another good addition when attending a show alone is that people typically feel sorry for you and then befriend you based on pity. KIDDING, but you do tend to be able to make friends easier. It may have to do with there being less intimidation to talk to you due to the fact that you’re alone and not in a group. In the end, maybe somebody went alone as you did and you end up becoming friends based on that experience alone!
