99.9% of times when I go to fast food places I'm alone and don't feel out of place doing it. I've never been to a sit down place with a wait staff, etc alone though. If I'm going to spend the money at a place like that and leave a tip, it's usually because I'm going to dinner with a friend or something. I also rarely if ever see people eating alone when I go to those restaurants.

And if I'm eating alone I generally like to get something quick and be out the door fast. Eating at a nice restaurant, is supposed to be enjoyable, but I'd get bored fast without someone to talk to and want to be on my way. No real point in me going alone.

No I do this constantly and I see tonnes of other people doing it too. Like often everyone I see is alone too, thatís how common it is here. But thatís more for casual dining. I would like to have the confidence to eat in more fancy places though... I think people who go to bougie cafes and feast by themselves are kind of cool.

Good job on your breakthrough.
My sentiments exactly Sofa King. Other people coming in & you feel you're taking up a whole table

While you SCREAM at your woman, there's a man, wishing he could talk softly in her ear...

there's a man flirting with her, & reminding her, how wonderful she is.

While you HURT your woman,
there's a man wishing he could show her love

While you make your woman CRY,
there's a man stealing smiles from her.
