  • I think it would depend on the type of restaurant. If it was full of family and kids it might be depressing. If it was full of singles or couples then I actually might feel a bit sexy and mysterious.... It's all in the atmosphere..... I use to go to movies alone all the time. Not the 1st showing nor the late showing, somewhere in the middle. 1st showings have the older couples - rub it in ''I'm a loner'' and late showings are the ''new love''....

  • I prefer to eat alone in places like that. It's a wonderful break from all the crap of the day!

  • I love to grab a book,go to a resturant and have someone wait on me while I just sit back and relax. Its such a guilty pleasure whenever I can escape the kids and the house.

  • I used to do it all the time when I traveled for work. I'd just bring a book and enjoy myself.
