i never really do, i will go through a drive through, but ive noticed when out to a nice restaurant, that there are a number of people eating alone. they read, or use their laptop, i never really noticed this going on before.

Nope- I don't... I am like you and will grab something through the drive through- or I'll place an order and take it out- I don't like eating out in restaurants alone- I think people look at you funny- I'm not usually lucky enough to be alone- Usually my daughter is with me- or my sig. other- Even for lunches- I won't go somewhere by myself- I just find it sad---

i am just not comfortable in a real dining situation. people look at you funny. i have gone to the movie by myself. i dont mind that. there just are some movies my husband doesn't want to see!

I actually don't mind eating alone in a restaurant as long as I have a paper or magazine to read. Actually sometimes it is perferable,or necessary (like when I go for Sushi).

yes i have eaten out alone a few times, the time alone and eating in peace. i have 2 kids and its nice to just have a meal,one that i want and alone. i read or just sit there and look at the people.

I've only done it once and that was sort of a forced alone time and I didn't care for it much. I don't like it. I like having someone to talk to when I'm out. It took a lot for me just to become comfortable shopping by myself. I'm an independent person for the most part, but I like having someone with me when I'm out running errands or something especially if it's a long day and I don't have anyone to talk to. It makes things go by quicker.
