Is that the question you get from your girlfriends, mothers, sisters or other females? Do you hate it when they get an incredulous look on their face when you tell them? Like you just committed the ultimate sin? Or you need lots of therapy?
Funny, I tend to forget there was a time when women were NEVER alone in anyway for anything. What seems so natural now, was once upon a time was social tabu! My Mom was that way.. she never went anywhere alone. Not even 1/2 a block to the corner store. Sad, so sad, but then, that was the way back then, wasn't it?
(enter Ozzie and Harriet)
My next door neighbor is that way somewhat. Oh, she goes out alone, the post office, the market, etc, but not for long or very far. One time I mentioned that I go to the Opera on occasion. "Oh I don't think I could go with you Denise I'd be scared!" To go to opera??? HUH?
(fear of the highway, the city, the walk to the opera house, too far, too dark are just a few of her reasons) I could go on for hours about this topic
But I'll leave it here. Besides! I just had say something on this, our forum!
