It will be alright. 4 years ago
How I did it: I used to depend on going to concerts, etc. with friends. When I wanted to go to a certain show, and nobody else was interested, I actually took a pass on the event. (I'm embarrassed, now).
Eventually, I got tired of the rejection and tired of missing out on what I wanted to do. Then I went out to a show by myself. Was a little nervous, but befriended some of the staff and met some great acquaintances that I still occasionally see out. Just go! Read how I did it… 4 years ago

Saturday night i went back out to Alex’s Bar in Long Beach. This is getting a little bit easier every time!
I even got in free this time because my friend Quincy that I met the first night there was working the door! Bonus! 7 years ago
I did it again.
I drove out to a bar last night to see a few bands play and it was pretty fun.
One of the bands that played was one of the same bands that I saw last time I ventured out alone and have kept in contact with via Myspace… so I guess I wasn’t completely alone.
I’ve been trying to get a few of my friends interested in going to these things with me, but it seems that we always have conflicting schedules =/
So until I get someone to go with me, I guess I’ll continue to go alone… after all, there will always be more people to meet. :o) 7 years ago
Last Friday I went to a bar in Long Beach with some friends to see some bands play. It was a great little bar that has live music every weekend.
So two days later when I wanted to go again and had noone to drag along, I just went alone…
...and it wasn’t so bad. It was actually really fun! I spent my last $10 to get in, and had absolutely no money to even get a drink, but I soon made friends with the bartender. the bouncer (that’s me and him in the picture) and a guy whose credit card I found out in the parking lot (who turned out to be in one of the bands).
I ended up meeting 4 or 5 people who I’ve kept in touch with through Myspace and am planning to go hang out with again.
When I was on my way to the bar alone, I had reservations and have to admit I also had those “nervous butterflies” in my stomach, but that all went away once I just relaxed and started talking to people.
I think the key is to go somewhere where you have something in common with the other people who are there… in this case, we’d all gone there for the live music. Whatever works, right? 7 years ago
