Is it weird to eat by yourself at a nice restaurant?

>> No.13309070

no but why would you? just order delivery and claim the bag was fucked with so you can get free food

>> No.13309071

no. stop caring about what others think and learn to enjoy your own company.

I eat alone at restaurants all the time. I definitely prefer having the company of a good friend or my SO, but eating alone has its perks.

There's just none of that. Its nice.

I'm working bro. That's why I'm alone. No I won't eat a sandwish alone in my hotel room, I'm traveling 5 to 6 days a fucking week. I'm going to the hotel restaurant in slippers, ask for everything to come as quick as possible and be put on the table, sometime order 2 main courses and ask for it to be put in the same plate. Bro, I don't even see you anymore, I don't give a fuck.

Not at all, I don't understand why people feel awkward about eating out alone. A huge percentage of restaurants have bar seating specifically for solo diners, and even if they didn't nobody would care if you're eating alone unless you're doing something to draw attention to yourself like eating noisily or existing while being outrageously ugly, like 0 or 1 out of 10 ugly.

>> No.13309415

Exactly, it's not a big deal when you look average( or above) or successful. Like on a business trip and you can have lunch alone while touring the city .Since you're just waiting for the dinner appointment at night.

It’s fine. Just sit at the bar.

>> No.13311118

Not that eating alone in restaurants is weird to begin with, but eating alone in a hotel diner is very normal. If you look or act like a weirdo that's another thing, but just going by yourself and having a meal is totally normal.

I used to eat out alone all the time while traveling for work, it never occured to me anyone would think it's weird until coming here.

>> No.13311131

I'm a stranger walkin into your town
It's so mysterious
You've never seen me but I came to chow down
There better be no fuss

I sit down at the local diner to eat
The waitress sees me, hard for her to breath
A lone wolf she just can't wait to seat


>> No.13311199

Not at all, but whenever I do it I always make sure to mention several times that if they don't hurry up I might miss my "flight" back "home" to "Boulder, Colorado" where my loving "family" would much prefer for me to be having dinner with "them" instead of on my own.

If I thought for one second that they weren't buying my charade I'd probably redecorate their chic industrial-style unpainted walls with the "pistol" I illegally conceal carry at all times in my "shoulder holster" for exactly this eventuality.

>> No.13311217

I eat alone all the time. Most of the time it's fine. Sometimes it feels weird, but it isn't like I usually have a choice.
Also that's almost at painful as Marn getting fucking owned.

If you're wearing a suit and tie in a fancy place, no. It's gangster.

>> No.13311270

No, but if you're self concious, there are some things you can do to feel a bit more at ease.

>Table for one means ONE chair. Get the waiters to remove all excess chairs.
>Bring a book. It makes you look like you planned some quality 'you' time.
>Exchange pleasantries but do not make conversation. Otherwise you will look starved for attention. Try dismissive small responses such as "how nice" and break eye contact to resume reading.

Yes, anytime we get a loner in our restaurant the waiters come rushing to the kitchen to tell us. We have a good laugh and delay sending out your food just to fuck with you. If its a guy we'll send a waitress to pretend to flirt with you and she'll report back the results. We dont mess with your food but we do take liberty in the sanitation with it.

I'm at one right now. Grabbing a bite, waiting for my car to finish in the shop. There's zero stigma in eating by yourself.

Seriously, the only people who have this stigma are high schoolers who are embarrassed to go anywhere without their friends because they’re unsure how to act. Going to any sort or establishment or activity (restaurant, movie theatre) can be fun with friends but there is nothing wrong with enjoying it alone or, as is your case, grabbing a quick bite while finishing to-do’s.

>> No.13311755

Even in high school. I took private driver's ed during summer break, not the school sponsored one. My mom would drop me off very early because of her commitments to her errands. There was a restaurant in the same strip mall, and every Tuesday, before driver's ed, I'd pop in by myself for some soup and a salad.

Now, someone in this thread mentioned that it's unhealthy to seek isolation. And that's true. But the occasional lone meal is inconsequential to your wellness.
