Eeep! I don't. Part of eating out is socializing for me. I'm not a big epicurean so if I don't have a buddy to eat with I just head for Taco Bell's drive-through.

I moved to a new country alone and I certainly got used to eating out by myself. I loved it....I took a book,chose a nice place and usually got excellent service. I still do it when my fiance is on a business trip .

Sometimes while shopping I'll sit out on a terrace alone and people watch or read.

Please don't pity us...it is far sadder not to be able to enjoy your own company.

When I lived in an apartment by myself I ate alone at nice, sit-down, restaurants all the time (several times a week for dinner). I got totally comfortable with it. I still eat out alone when I travel.

I think it's awesome that so many of you are comfortable with your own company.

As the old maxim goes, if you can't enjoy your own company, who can?

I never do. I rarely eat out though, so when I do, I'd prefer to have company.

I like to people watch. I have heard people at the next table say, "I hope she realizes she is going to get fat if she does that a lot!!" (yep, my 100 pounds are definitely proving THAT theory). I started eating by myself when I moved to Europe by myself and didn't know anyone there. Since I can't cook, I had to go out!
