Would you think me weird...?

...if you saw me somewhere by myself? The nature of my husband's work means that I have to go out by myself if I need to run errands or go somewhere. So I often run errands by myself, go to the mall by myself, eat by myself, and take walks by myself. Since I am a loner by nature, this is not really a problem, except that sometimes I get uncomfortable when I see people keep glancing my way. Sometimes people actually stare, as if its highly unusual for a woman to be alone. If you were one of those who saw me go out alone, would you stare too? Would you think it unusual for a person to be doing things by herself?

I actually go shopping for clothes on my own as that would allow me to find the best clothes and the best deals than having my husband wait for me or go along with me . I love to have him along when I go out but not having him around as I go shop or whatever is perfectly alright, girl . Don't feel uncomfortable because of that. Maybe, the reason why people stare is that you are beautiful. So smile.

Goodness me, no. Plenty of people do things by themselves. Maybe it's odd depending what country one's in...but I personally wouldn't consider it weird.

Not at all. I used to do things by myself all the time before I had kids, and then when I was pregnant as well. I mean the other kids were at school, my husband was at work. I wasn't going to just sit here lol. These days I usually have my daughter with me, or I go with a friend and we get a babysitter for all the kids.
