Do you find it difficult to eat in public alone?

Some people find it very difficult to eat in public by themselves. Either they feel strange because everyone else is sitting in groups of two or more; or they simply find themselves focusing too much on the mechanics of eating and digesting a meal rather than enjoying pleasant conversation to distract them from the simple process of consuming food.does it make you nervous to eat by yourself in public?

It actually depends on the situation. I looked at the people around me and that's when I'll decide whether I'll eat or not. It also depends on my biological needs. If I'm too hungy, then I forget the people around me and concentrate on munching my food.

It depends where I am eating. I love to eat at foreign restaurants for instanse Indian, Chinese or Mexican restaurants, but I wouldn't go there by myself. I enjoy the food at those places, but don't like to eat alone, and I need company in order to really enjoy the time that I spend at the restaurant. I love talking to my husband or a friend while we are eating. If I am very hungry and just need a quick meal I might eat at McDonald's or a similar place and then I don't mind eating alone.

No, I enjoy eating alone in public Honestly, i'm slow at eating so when I eat with friends or family i'm the last one who finish my meal.. eating alone give me time to enjoy my food well and I love watch people,, so while eating I can watch other people, wondering where will they go and what's his/her feeling now.. I found it's more peaceful eating alone..although I like eat together with friends too, but i have no problem in eating alone in public

no, i dont find it difficult eating alone in public. im used to it already. back in college, when i was in first year, i always eat alone because im new and have no friends, i got conscious the first time, but have gotten used to it as the days went by. up to now, its really okay with me to eat out all by myself.
