Do you like eating with your friends, family or alone? And why? How long does it takes for you to finish eating your meal?

hi.... i like to eat with my friends and family both but don't like to eat alone.i always like to eat tasty and delicious food and enjoy with other people's company during eating.when eating alone i get bored and takes a lots of time to finish it other it takes normal time not so fast not so slow. the time also depends on the item and the taste of the food.if i dislikes the food i takes a lots of time to finish it and also takes water after to to swallow the food.with the company of my friends and family a tasteless food also become eatable for me. alone a delicious food becomes tasteless and much more enough than my capacity.

Yeah whenever we eat with our family and friends the foods can be real tasty and delicious even if it's not. Well I think it's because we focus with them and not with the food, that's why also we tend to eat a lot than usual. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

..hi.. I prefer eating with my whole family.. I've been brought up in a family where we are used to dining together.. now that I'm married, that is one thing i missed.. but I'm also having that as an orientation with my new family.. I see to it that we eat together.. I'm not an extrovert person who enjoys the company of friends.. I enjoy more the company of my family..

Me, either used to eat with my family. I grown up with a very close family ties and we often eat together while sharing our days done. It's quite fun, actually I missed it a lot,especially that I'm the one left with my parents and my siblings have their own family and live abroad. My friends and I sometimes eat together and it's fun. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Yes, I love eating with my friends and family, specially with my fiance. And it actually depends on whoever I am with and what I am eating. If I am with my close friends then it normally takes me longer to finish my meal, given that we spend most of our time talking and laughing. If I'm with my family, it normally takes me about 30 mins, because we are raised to have good manners, so meal is all about meal and talking about how our went, etc, and with my fiance, it normally takes about 20 mins for normal basis, but if its like snacks and killing time, we definitely take longer to finish our meals.

At work, especially during weekends no boss around and with little work so my co-workers and I often eat for a longer time, just to take away boredom and wait for time. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your weekends!

I enjoy eating with my family when we're at home or if there's a family occasions or whenever we dine-out. I also enjoy eating with my friends when we also dine out and do some chit-chats. Depending on the topic eating with friends can go on hours or until we finish what we are eating. Eating with family or friends is a sort of bonding so that you'll be more closer to each other

Yeah, eating with your family and friends is a good way to bond your relationship with them. Great foods always bring family together. My family and I usually dine-in at home because it's more comfortable especially with the kids unlike when you dine-out. Sometimes we go to the beach and stay there for whole day and I love it. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your weekends!

In my case I always prefer eating with somebody. I enjoy eating with my family as much as I enjoy eating with my boy friend. When I'm at home I usually take long to eat though, since there's no generally no rush to finish right away. I'm a slow eater so I usually eat from 15 to 30 minutes. When I'm with my boy friend though I have to eat quick because he eats very fast!

Oh, 15-30 minutes eating that could be real quite longer time to eat a meal. Every time I'm alone eating,it could take around 5 minutes for me to finish. But when I have company, it could take an hour as I enjoy talking over the foods. Yeah, mostly guys eat fast, as they're used to it. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Yeah, it's the same with my family, during and after eating we spend whole time talking about our life, family, work, share funny moments and jokes, it was really fun being with family. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Good question! I love to eat with family and good friends in a pleasant and wholesome setting. I'd rather eat alone when meal time becomes a marathon. When I am with people who do not say a word while we eat, but try to grab food as much and as fast as they can, then take their leave without even a simple "excuse me," I find this awefully annoying and makes me lose my appetite. I am speaking from experience. This is sad, but true. It usually takes me 10 minutes alone and about 60 minutes with great company. Meal time is supposed to be a happy time. Enjoy yours, careguarden.

I dont like to eat alone.My kids come home late from school still i wait for them.My hubby is always late home from work ,i like to dine with him and can wait several hours for him.I love to cook for my family as well ,i experiment with lots of dishes and like to cook for them.When i am alone i can manage with butter and slice or toast and jam .I never cook for myself i hate the idea of being alone in dining table.I like to party and can cook for several people and as many as five dishes alone.I dont eat lazily ,i finish my meals first.

I like to eat alone, because i dont like the way people staring at me while i'm eating. I think there is nothing wrong with the way im eating, but i dont know why i feel strange when i eat with lot of people. I need maybe around 30 minutes to finished eating my meal.
