I think quite frankly that they are more comfortable with themselves compared to the person who needs to have their best friend follow them wherever they go. No one likes to be in an uncomfortable position. Why would that person go to an event by themselves knowing that more than likely they will see couples, and cliques. It is because they could care less what other people think. It would be the complete opposite if they just stayed home all the time.
These days people even bring their boyfriends, or BFF to an interview. When I see this I frown because it shows that more than likely they can not handle being independent? They say the best way to figure out if you are truly comfortable under your own skin is to go to a club, movie, sporting event alone. If you are able to enjoy yourself rather than feeling anxious you passed the test. If not work on it, because it can only make yourself stronger.
It's one thing to go to events alone because you don't have a problem going out alone and have friends, entirely another if it's not by choice because that's social isolation.
What really concerns me are people who can't be alone without a cell phone up to their head yacking away walking down the street, in an elevator, in line at the grocery store, in the mall, gas station, driving in their car, etc including the text-o-holics who do the same. I think that speaks volumes about insecurity and not being comfortable in their own skin to stand alone without that electronic device.
