Solo-traveling CRINGE

Do you get second-hand cringe watching solo travelers?

In many ways i admire them, but there's so many situations that make me cringe as a solo traveler...
Like at the end of this video when he simply goes playing soccer with teens, i'd be too affraid to look like a groomer or something.

How to overcome the cringe-ness of solo traveling?

    The only time I've felt second-hand cringe is when I saw a guy sitting alone at a 4-seat table in a packed michelin star restaurant. But after a few minutes that passed and I realized that there's nothing wrong with that either and I wish I had the balls to do that when I travel alone

      But it IS kind of wrong tho.
      It's not normal behavior (only probably 1% of customers in a michelin restaurant are alone).

        So what? Millions of people travel alone for business at any given moment and not all of them want to lock themselves up in their hotel rooms and order room service, but go out and do stuff. If that means going to a bar alone or going to fine dining alone, then that is fine. I'm using business travel as an example because nobody frowns upon that, but when you see a guy sitting alone at a restaurant you have literally no way of knowing if he's traveling for business or pleasure, so why judge him?

          People judge because you're seen as a threat if they don't understand what you're doing, it's a reality, i'd rather not deny it but try to find cope mechanisms.
          For example, i do try to pass as a businessman or a local when i travel alone sometimes (only works in big cities). Businessman is good example of what is deemed normal for most people. Or photographer in a museum or park.

            Take your meds. Protip: no one gives a frick about you or notices you. If they do, 2 seconds later they think about something else.

              Go out in the real world as a solo traveler and you'll get comments sometimes, that's a fact.
              And i meant "threat" on a subconscient level, not like you'll kill them. You're a stranger sharing a public space with them, their subconscient have to figure out what you are. It happens in all species, cats, birds....

              I notice and am noticed by virtually everyone on the street in developing countries. Situational awareness is a routine in most places, though outside the Philippines, it is very rare to exchange words with people I pass by. Only in American cities is it considered normal to completely ignore everyone in public and even block out all sounds with noise-cancelling headphones.

              Go out in the real world as a solo traveler and you'll get comments sometimes, that's a fact.

              Your behavior has to be awfully predatory and suspicious for Third Worlders to see you as a threat. It's always the other way around; the white foreigner sees the local man as a threat.

              Earlier today, I was thinking about something:
              What if, for a moment, you could put on VR glasses and a bodysuit, and then send into the world in a dronesuit humanbody, controlled by you. Decent voice link, haptics, etc, convincing enough that others think you're real. Imagine how much fun you could have - you could obvious go and perform crime etc, but you could also simply go try out social strategies - think habbo hotel but real. You could go talk to a girl at a bar, see what works, what doesn't, go try to make a friend, play-act as a boisterous chad, etc.

              This line of thinking made me start considering just how unbelievably inhibited I am in real life. I started to think, wait, that doesn't need to be a fantasy; as long as I stay within the constraints of the law, I could actually, really go do that stuff. In fact, I assume that it wouldn't harm my social standing; if anything, it would skyrocket it!

              But I don't think I could actually do it, without the detachment of the cyborg. In real life, I would freeze up and become submissive the moment anyone came within 20 feet of me.
              I don't really have a solution. I guess I should go touch grass more.

              I used to have the desire, but lacked the confidence. Now I have the confidence, but lack the desire.

People will forget about you before you even get off their sight. Even famous people. Is there a single person now that remembers about biden pedo, wiener and crack pictures? No. Neither will you in a day.

            Adjusting one's behavior out of respect for other people's perceptions and reactions is basic human decency, and is very important to being a good guest overseas. Being an butthole and showing utter disregard for others doesn't make you an alpha, it only makes you an butthole. Probably a manlet as well, because it's always manlets who have to be assertive and bullying to feel good about themselves, and who have an obsessive fear of being a "beta". Aggressive manlets never get the respect they crave, so they become very frustrated as well.

              You are talking about behaviour and you are right in this regard. Notice I was talking about CARING what others think - you should always be confident in what you do, and I'm not advocating for being an butthole. The whole topic came out from being alone in a restaurant, and it's a basic citizen's right to go alone anywhere public. Everyone should respect countries customs and local etiquiette but adjusting your whole day to society expectations will make your life miserable and NPClike. There are places that going alone is very weird like swinger clubs but restaurant is definitely not that place.

              I traveled alone for a week in Europe last year, during this week (that was mostly a good trip) i had at last 3 occurrences of people judging me because i was solo traveling:
              -at the hotel, i overheard the hotel owner's 7-something year old daughter asking if i hated people (which i admittedly do)
              -in the plane, some agro b***h made some comments to her cuck boyfriend about me (she was jealous i had the window seat and pretended i was rude because i was wearing a baseball cap or whatever)
              -I was eating a sandwich at one time and a teen b***h told the two guys she was with that she hated seeing people alone and it was sad to witness
              -at a restaurant, the waitress was very nice but it felt kind of patronizing, but this one is mostly me i guess, because there was another guy alone at the restaurant who was way more autist than me, like literally wearing a fedora.

              Not that these were huge moments, but enough to think about it and think about how i could have avoided some of them.

            Unironically this, even down to the words "beta" and "cuck" which I never use. I read a post on reddit years ago that stuck with me due to its absurdity: "how do I go to a bar alone?"

            Yet this thread is full of pathetic shit like that. You're all reddit-tier losers.

              It's not a stupid question, going alone in a place literally packed with strangers is the stuff of nightmares. I almost fainted once in a small takeout restaurant in Italy, it was like 20sqm with 20 people in.

                But I have no problem at all going to a restaurant/ cafe on my own.
                Sometimes it's a lot easier to get room service (if in a swanky western hotel).

      And i meant "threat" on a subconscient level, not like you'll kill them. You're a stranger sharing a public space with them, their subconscient have to figure out what you are. It happens in all species, cats, birds....

      If I see someone sitting alone in any public place I make the inference that they’re a defeated, socially-maladjusted loser, and that it’s to such a severe degree that NOBODY is willing to voluntarily spend time with them.

      This is what EVERY SINGLE normal person thinks when they see you sitting alone ESPECIALLY when it’s a place where you SHOULD be with someone like a sit down restaurant or movie theatre.

      I feel for these people because I myself am an isolated, schizoid loser who suffered too many social defeats and so I simply gave up. But I’m still considerate. I go to great pains to find places where I can sit alone and not unsettle other people.

      My best friend in the world is places with patio seating that looks out onto the street so you can just stare off into space and you’re not facing anyone. So comfy

      We're reaching levels of autism that shouldn't even be possible
      Nobody thinks like this, if you think like this you are 100% a terminally online flamboyant Black person who probably has anime-tier monologues with themselves
      I need you fricking deplorables to understand this - You can go anywhere alone and no one will care. Do you know why? You are not affecting their existence. Yes, if you walk around wearing a trenchcoat and have some unique gait and are also wearing golden sunglasses, people may think what are they doing, why are they dressed like that etc.
      Other than that? Just go enjoy life. Frick you idiots surprise me with just how stupid you can get every single day

          You don't hate people, you wish you had friends to travel with. Proof being I hate black people and if some black people were talking talking shit about me I literally wouldn't care because they're nothing to me. You cared though.

            I travel alone, half because i have no one to go with, but half by choice as well.
            I already travelled with my ex many times before, it was a mixed bag.

            For some reason, they always start to become psychotic a few days in. And I have friends, but none are travelers, so there is that.

        Got that a lot in Japan, for the most part no one gives a shit what you dress like in Australia you could dress like a bum for all they care and people would just go along with their business as usual.

        But in Japan if your fashion sense is a bit off you will get a lot of comments.
        I think some of the funniest comments I encountered were one guy that started singing some power rangers like song when he spotted me wearing a yellow jacket and similar colours was probably a bit too gaudy and bright they tend to prefer darker and more neutral colours on men at least. Other men in Osaka would just say Yabbai! YABBAI! twice for emphasis

        Another time I was wearing a long white jacket which also was odd there because from observation it seems that's what women mostly wore.
        Some guy in harajuku passing me by said "what the frick?" lol.
        I overestimated how cold it would be in december so I was wearing two heattech layers and that puffer, it was too hot so when I wore it I had the jacket open. Two dudes passed by I think in yokohama and started singing something from Jojo and reciting some phrases from Jojo when they spotted me lol.

        The women either really liked it or really disliked it when you stood out, there didn't seem to be an in between unless they were feeling sorry for you being so ignorant about their cultural norms.

          Been to Japan many times, always in summer. Mostly wore fashion sneakers mid calf socks, long shorts (bought in Kyoto) tshirt. Sometimes accessorised with a Nihon style tengui head cloth or neck kerchief. The only thing I noticed was people glancing at my socks (they were dress socks, pastel colours patterns).
          One hot summer I wore sport shorts and tshirt and Nihon style towel around my neck. While waiting at crossing got a "tough" stare from some young punks which I took as a compliment anyhow.

            Live my life in sweat shorts, t-shirts, crocs, singlets. Sometimes go shirtless in open air markets and street, no one gives a frick.
            Have worn compression shorts and leggings at gym and afterwards shopping with no big deal. As a male have worn earrings, eyeliner, eye makeup, skirt, sarong. No one gives a frick.
            Earrings and eyeliner to my church group. No one cares.
            The only comment I ever got was when I went running wearing only square cut swimming trunks and passerby said "weirdo" but I might have even imagined that.

            I didn't notice it until I started tune into what they are saying since I started noticing a pattern in comments. And was curious to know what was being said about me as I passed by.

          Live my life in sweat shorts, t-shirts, crocs, singlets. Sometimes go shirtless in open air markets and street, no one gives a frick.
          Have worn compression shorts and leggings at gym and afterwards shopping with no big deal. As a male have worn earrings, eyeliner, eye makeup, skirt, sarong. No one gives a frick.
          Earrings and eyeliner to my church group. No one cares.
          The only comment I ever got was when I went running wearing only square cut swimming trunks and passerby said "weirdo" but I might have even imagined that.

      >a guy sitting alone at a 4-seat table in a packed michelin star restaurant. But after a few minutes that passed and I realized that there's nothing wrong with that
      But it IS kind of wrong tho.
      It's not normal behavior (only probably 1% of customers in a michelin restaurant are alone).

      like 99% of people would never dare do that because of how cringeworthy it is, lmao. are 99% of people losers?

      Lmao I actually did this 2 hours ago. I do it regularly and don't feel any awkwardness or shame. There were 2 other dudes doing the same too today. I don't think it's that rare especially in more fancy places.
      Are you from the US ? I think they are way more sensible about how they're perceived even as fricking customers who are just spending a good time.

    Earlier today, I was thinking about something:
    What if, for a moment, you could put on VR glasses and a bodysuit, and then send into the world in a dronesuit humanbody, controlled by you. Decent voice link, haptics, etc, convincing enough that others think you're real. Imagine how much fun you could have - you could obvious go and perform crime etc, but you could also simply go try out social strategies - think habbo hotel but real. You could go talk to a girl at a bar, see what works, what doesn't, go try to make a friend, play-act as a boisterous chad, etc.

    This line of thinking made me start considering just how unbelievably inhibited I am in real life. I started to think, wait, that doesn't need to be a fantasy; as long as I stay within the constraints of the law, I could actually, really go do that stuff. In fact, I assume that it wouldn't harm my social standing; if anything, it would skyrocket it!

    But I don't think I could actually do it, without the detachment of the cyborg. In real life, I would freeze up and become submissive the moment anyone came within 20 feet of me.
    I don't really have a solution. I guess I should go touch grass more.

      It's very funny that I had very similar realisation which is what pushed me to travelling to begin with.

      I was replaying Fallout New Vegas and became absolutely obsessed with it and just began to think to myself if only I could do this in real life, just going around travelling, meeting people, doing jobs for them and then I realised wait I literally can do that. Nothing is stopping me doing that and the places that exist in the game exist irl.

      I was an unemployed NEET from England and literally used my unemployment money to buy a plane ticket to NY and hitchhiked to LA, on the way I met people, did odd jobs and even went to Zion national park and goodsprings all because of the game.

    If I see someone sitting alone in any public place I make the inference that they’re a defeated, socially-maladjusted loser, and that it’s to such a severe degree that NOBODY is willing to voluntarily spend time with them.

    This is what EVERY SINGLE normal person thinks when they see you sitting alone ESPECIALLY when it’s a place where you SHOULD be with someone like a sit down restaurant or movie theatre.

    I feel for these people because I myself am an isolated, schizoid loser who suffered too many social defeats and so I simply gave up. But I’m still considerate. I go to great pains to find places where I can sit alone and not unsettle other people.

    My best friend in the world is places with patio seating that looks out onto the street so you can just stare off into space and you’re not facing anyone. So comfy

      its awesome to be with company, but those on the road know this is not always the case. be OK with circumstances all the time and concede to the fact that people are in a similar position. this can either help you cope with being lonesome, or elevate you to make new friends - or both

        You overcome it simply by being alone constantly and getting used to it. In time, you learn to tune out the funny looks you get from other people and the feelings of inner sadness from not having a partner to enjoy your vacations with/eating out with.

        After all, you SHOULD try traveling with someone else. I promise you that it's NOTHING like it's described and in the movies. It's quite stressing actually, and I've found that it can completely ruin the trip if your travel partner has different ideas than you do.

      I don’t always travel alone, but a lot of it is because the dating scene at home sucks and my friends aren’t as wealthy as I am so they can’t always go on trips with me. A mix of solo and group trips both have their ups and downs. I just went to Japan with a group of friends, and it was fun but sometimes your friends become too much and you want to be alone. There’s nothing wrong with that

    If you give a shit about other people, or what other think about you, then you are a cuck.

    You are having your brain real estate and cycles claimed by other human beings. They are fricking your brain and occupying it.

    Once you free yourself of caring about what nobodies think about you, then you can keep your brain occupied with subjects that you care about.

    This goes both ways. If you're a little gay and get upset when you see a guy doing something alone, he is fricking your brain and occupying it rent free. You're being brain-cucked by allowing yourself to care.

    Getting angry at solo travelers is the same thing as being angry that a guy fricked your girlfriend.

    Solo travelling is equally liberating and pathetic in my opinion. Having travelled solo myself, there are times when you are so glad of the freedom and other times when you feel like a total loser. What is worse is seeing other awkward solo travellers playing miserably with their phones in a restaurant or sat alone outside a crowded bar trying to look happy. Female solo travellers are generally some of the most unhappy looking people I've ever seen. Until they inevitably get picked up by some Chad I suppose.

    As for the hypernormie Youtubers, the lack of originality and self-awareness is typical of their personality type. Unless I was making serious cash from videos, I could not be remotely bothered with the effort required to get some cliched drone footage and selfie sticking my entire waking day.

      I traveled alone for a week in Europe last year, during this week (that was mostly a good trip) i had at last 3 occurrences of people judging me because i was solo traveling:
      -at the hotel, i overheard the hotel owner's 7-something year old daughter asking if i hated people (which i admittedly do)
      -in the plane, some agro b***h made some comments to her cuck boyfriend about me (she was jealous i had the window seat and pretended i was rude because i was wearing a baseball cap or whatever)
      -I was eating a sandwich at one time and a teen b***h told the two guys she was with that she hated seeing people alone and it was sad to witness
      -at a restaurant, the waitress was very nice but it felt kind of patronizing, but this one is mostly me i guess, because there was another guy alone at the restaurant who was way more autist than me, like literally wearing a fedora.

      Not that these were huge moments, but enough to think about it and think about how i could have avoided some of them.

      It's true some people care, but then again when some morons make a tiktok making fun of a guy being alone it usually backlashes at them and they get lots of hate. Shitty people will care that you go alone, but you should give them any form of respect to actually care about lowlifes, people who just project their own insecurity or kids.

        Yeah, that's what I thought. Sitting at a table by yourself is pretty autistic, but worrying about what everyone thinks about you for sitting by yourself is even more autistic. Still, if you genuinely don't want to sit in a restaurant by yourself, just make sure you only go to restaurants with bars, and ask to sit at the bar.

    I travel a lot for business, so I'm kind of used to it. But I feel often out of place, so I prefer to get some tinder dates or drag people from work to go with me. But sometimes it's not possible, so I don't have any other options than to go by myself. If you go to a bar, that's not a real issue, because there are more people who are by themselves and you can easy talk with strangers. For restaurants it's easy for lunch, but diners are strange. It also depends on country and regions, but in general people don't really care.

      What would you say are the easiest countries to travel alone?

        The USA is the worst for traveling alone. Western Europe is shit. Eastern Europe is a crapshoot. Everywhere else? Pretty damn easy if you know a bit of language to help.

          It depends on the region of the USA. People are very outgoing, I found it easy in the South and Midwest.
          Europe is total shit, people stay by themselves.
          Rest of the world is pretty easy too, you doesnt even need to need the language, but I look very European, so people are in general very curious.

    You just don't have confidence anon
    You need to tell yourself sometimes, "I don't care if I look autistic, I'm wasting my life savings so it better be worth it" and just go flex your tourist status sometimes
