Three people walk into a bar. They’re pleased. No-one wants to walk into a bar alone.
At least I didn’t when I was young. Didn’t want to and couldn’t. Could you? Was it social anxiety? Really, would anyone else inside the bar have looked up and thought, “Hmph. Poor girl. So boring.” And if they had have thought that, would I have known? If I did know, would it have mattered what a stranger thought?
Looking back, armed now with all my wisdom and maturity, it seems less about social anxiety and more about self-centredness. Yep, that sounds about right.

Did you prefer to skip a night out in the early days than have to do the dreaded walk into a pub on your own?
