The Firefly was the singlehanded boat in the 1948 Olympics so there is a precedent. Admittedly they decided it wasn't ideal and chose the Finn in 1952. If the OP sails solo 90% of the time but want's to have the option to sail with another occasionally then a small two hander makes more sense than a large unarig.

I am hoping to sail my Mirror tomorrow, with the Jib,I will not comply and move mast into single handed position, sorry if this is strange, but I am going to do it anyway.

I am going to form an association for solo sailors of double handed boats, SSDHDA, Solo Sailors of Double Handed Dinghies Association.
I am going to come "OUT" I sometimes sail a 2 hander SOLO.
Edited to add SOLO

Sail what you like, but to recommend to someone they should get an Enterprise because they find a Laser unergonomic is crazy advise.
