Anyone else playing co-op alone?

I managed to make it to Course 5 Mobility Gel test 2.
There were only 2 or 3 times I had to lay the controllers side by side, or one on top of the other to move both robots at once.
One time I had to hit a trigger with my mouth, but so far I'm surprised at how easy it is to do this once you figure out the puzzle.

By playing it alone you're missing out on a wonderful experience made up of frustration, grief and ultimate satisfaction with another duder.

This is like that guy who beats games on a dance pad, only more sad.

I played it with my girlfriend's 3 year old brother, that's all the handicap I'm ever going to deal with.

I tried online co-op once, and I made this kid (who was at least 20 years younger than me) flip out and eventually quit.
I'm pretty slow to figure out the puzzles, so I'd probably just make more people angry.
I'll need to at some point for the achievements, especially the time one but I'm waiting until it's absolutely necessary.

@Anwar: Did you know you can do the "2 aerial gestures before touching the ground in co-op" while floating in an excursion funnel

@Mike76x:  As much as I loved Portal 2, I actually really didn't like the co-op.  My friend and I have very different styles of playing Portal, I found, and it wasn't too enjoyable overall.  Also, any time someone solves the puzzle before you it makes you feel dumb and bitter.  So I say to you, good show!
@Ahmad_Metallic:  Be honest, you just wanted to use that picture.

I also wouldn't want to play it with someone that's already completed it.

I finally beat co-op by myself, it is possible.
5-9 had a part where I thought I was going to need another person, but I was able to setup my other player to minimize dual controlling.
