I solo sail most of the time. In my case, I want to go sailing whenever possible, and my daughter and wife just don't have that level of interest. (FYI, my son has no interest -- doesn't like to get wet). Solo sailing is actually more fun, primarily because it gives me the alone time I enjoy, time to reflect, time to daydream, etc. I always wear a pfd, so there's no change in that. Also, I have all my lines led aft, and don't shrink from reefing before I leave the dock.
As someone else said, it's almost harder to sail with someone else, because you have to ensure that they are actually doing something so they don't get bored and so they're more invested in the sail -- and don't feel like I'm hogging all the stuff that needs to be done.
I will say, however, that since I don't have to "direct" anyone (or maybe raise my voice a bit too much?) that my solo sails are pretty much silent.
