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 Embarassed

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?

@SpartyGirl:  hahahahha

 

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