What is that innate need to be dependent on someone? I am sure it is part of being human, but we always have that need to be around someone when doing something new or just doing something. The need to discuss whatever we have planned in the near future.
Watching a movie alone, it makes sense, you get to watch with your total undivided attention; but watching a movie with a friend! Now that would include jokes, laughs, discussions about the characters and mimicry.
The same goes with exercising, eating meals, dancing, working. (Except for maybe going to the washroom) 😀
The hardest part is when you are dependent on a singular person or two. Breaking away or trying anything alone makes it all the more difficult.
