Most articles encourage solo traveling or at least list the pros and cons. This one just emphasizes the down side. Some good comments follow the article too.

Very good article, it makes some good points but I feel the good points outweigh the bad.  I'd travel solo if I could.

Most of my trips have been alone and while you do experience some new things, I felt that the negatives outweighed those. Eating alone, trying to pass the time, in non English speaking countries, communication. Eating alone I try to get around by looking for food courts, fast food places, take out shops, etc. Keeping the trip short can be a good idea. I found that having a car makes things easier and provides something to do, but I have only rented cars in the US.

I am not sure what kind of solo traveling I will be doing in retirement. Although, I may attempt Paris.

I've always been a loaner all my life, so I think for the most part, I'd be ok.  I hope you have a good time whatever you decide to do.  Paris does sound fun!
