I’ve never done it before, not for any particular reason. I was just sitting here thinking (I have way too much time to do that these days) and wondered how many people enjoy doing this or have done it before, just to say they’ve done it? I know people who would never do it because they think it’s sad or they are just intimidated, but how many of you enjoy doing this?
I”m thinking of going to grab a magazine and getting some lunch by myself.

I’ll eat at a restaurant by myself… often when I’m traveling for work I have no choice in the matter. But I’ll usually sit at the bar instead of at a table by myself. I feel more weird at a table.

I do it fairly often and I love it. Nothing like enjoying a meal with a good book! I’ll also go to the movies myself because DH and I have different movie taste.

I do it. Not often, but I do it. FI and I are in an LDR until the wedding, so when he’s not around, and I can’t get friends to join me, I do all kinds of things by myself. Go out to eat, go to the movies, I even went to the zoo by myself. I shouldn’t have to sit home and be bored just because no one else is any fun.

I have. If I wanted something and didn’t have anyone to go with, I would go by myself. Doesn’t bother me one bit. However, a lot of people want to look at you like you have two heads! I used to always eat by myself in the cafeteria in college so it doesn’t bother me at all.

I get lunch by myself all the time if I don’t have food at work and need to eat. I find that way more people eat alone during lunch than dinner. I usually read my Nook or do stuff on my phone because I get bored. It’s nice to be away from people you know sometimes.

Nope never do. My FI will sometimes on his lunch break at work but I probably would not.
I care to much of what people think and I would feel embarassed. I’m a lil’ weird

I totally have. When I had more free time (and money), I would often buy a favorite magazine and pop into a restaurant to have lunch by myself. I don’t know if I would feel as comfortable without a book, laptop, etc.

I don’t… if I go out for lunch by myself, I get carry out and bring it back to my desk. I feel self-conscious I guess 😡

I love my alone time. Sometimes I just eat and look around at people or other times I’ll read a magazine.

@MrsTVLover: I love going to the movies by myself! However, when I saw Magic Mike alone, I felt kind of dirty and weird. Just for a min, though. Lol.

if im traveling by myself for work i do. Sometimes i’m sick of all of the panera and subway. I want a good meal to sit down to! It’s lonely, especially since i don’t have a smartphone to play on.

I don’t anymore, but I used to, all the time! Why deprive myself of a good meal because I didn’t have anyone to go with?

I love going out to eat alone. Give me some good food and a good book and I am soooo happy.
