On My Superpower Is Being Alone Forever: Party of One

"Unfortunately, people who possess tickets do not necessarily have an easier time getting dates than people who do not possess tickets." #truth. I have a job where I am swimming in tickets to fun things, but I always have to do the inviting, and frequently I just chicken out if it is too soon for "tickets" with a dude and friends are so specific I know when and what they will like. And, sigh, who knew this would be a "problem?" Jeez.

Now I know how to sidle in just as whoever I am seeing starts and scoot right up to the stage so going alone is almost preferred these days, but the seated events are tricky. And I find that the bartenders are looking for someone to take a shot with among the couples and have gotten more than a few free ones. Does this only happen to ladies though? What about the lady bartenders?

The practiced alone-ing can be positive though. If someone ever feels like a hostage, now I just go it alone. But I might also be less apt to be the hostage in the future ;). Is that bad?
