OT: Is it weird to go to a concert by yourself? 

Post#1 » by Im Coming Home » Tue Aug 20, 2013 11:08 pm

Long story short I have no close/real friends who like the same music as me, and I want to go to this concert REALLY bad. Its my two favorite bands in which have pretty different styles of music and they just happen to be doing a concert together.

Is it weird to go to a concert by yourself? I figure I will meet people who do enjoy the same music as me so it won't really matter..

Put an Ad on craigslist looking for a hot girl to take to (insert performers name here) concert.

Take the first dude that shows up to the concert with you.

Not at all, quite frankly I'm not missing a concert if my friends don't like my music. Lets be honest here, you will be adopted into a group by someone that's drunk, On E, Molly or high pending on where said concert is. Hell maybe even a sober person! Your going to a concert for the music and the performance not to listen to your friend talk about how much they like this song.

It's actually not weird at all. In fact, it shows that you don't need other people to enjoy yourself or have a good time.

One time, I went to a concert by myself, and a decent looking slender woman came up to me and asked if I was by myself, and said yes. She asked why, and I said that all my friends have terrible taste in music (with a smirk).

Point is, go and enjoy yourself!

I will add though that even if you have no "real" friends who want to go, now is a good time to hit up acquaintances who might be into it. Heck, maybe there is a cute person of interest that would be into that sort of music and would go with you.

Not at all, if your friends don't enjoy your type of music it's more of a nuisance hanging with them at the concert cause they'll complain and whine. Like u said, go meet new people.

I havent done it but I know many people who have. Its really not weird though. You can always just tell people your friends dont like the music you do and you want to meet new people. Since the people at the concert obviously do like the music you do you all have something in common too.

BTW who are you seeing

Believe it or not, I once picked up a hot chick by going to the movies by myself. She saw me by myself so she sat right next to me because she felt weird about being there by herself, we ended up talking, and it actually ended up becoming a date. So you never know, just because you arrive alone, don't mean you will leave alone.
