roboticanary Posted October 3, 2021 Share Posted October 3, 2021 Really interesting article here by Bella de Paulo, basically: people expect to enjoy their leisure activities more when they are going to be with a friend than if they will be alone. But the article explains why that might not be true. Really interesing stuff. As someone who would much rather go to places alone than with others it puts into writing what I have been thinking about for a while. https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blog/living-single/202110/why-some-things-are-more-fun-do-alone It also, while it talks about this in terms of friendship, is discussing something which I think turns up even more so in romance, the idea that your enjoyment is distracted by worrying about what the other person is thinking. What do you think? is this something you have experienced, and are you the sort of person who prefers seeing things alone or do you prefer to be with friends? 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
