Lonely and bored. Thinking of going out alone to enjoy a drink and bite. What can I expect if I show up alone. Any tips or advice for how all this works?

 Welcome to 40ish! I'm Vickey and although I've given up the bar scene a long time ago I think some of the same rules still apply. You can expect the local drunk to seek you out and ask you to dance...you can also expect a few of those wanting to be playfully funny to try to hit on you. There will also be the one guy who sits across the room who stares at you giving you the hee-bee gee-bees but there is at least one other man who may be in a place like you and want to be friends...make conversation and have fun. Just be on your toes and sort out the schmucks and be safe!

 Welcome to 40ish and beyond!

I never did the bar scene, but I frequently go out for a bite alone. it is very commonplace, and i think nothing of it. I like Vickey's advice.

Welcome!! I'm Wendy I'm sorry you are bored it sucks! Its been awhile since I've been to the bar but I agree with Vickey just keep on your toes and I'm not sure how well you are in reading people out but just be wise and look for them red Flags. As I tell my Oldest never take a drink from anybody unless it is ordered in front of your face and made in front of you Lol! HUGS!!!

Welcome to 40ish! I'm divorced, I've been where your at. Honestly I've never liked the bar scene. I met a really nice guy on line. If you do go on line just be careful. Always meet during the day & in public & don't give out your address until your sure this is someone you want to hang out with. Good luck! Let us know how it goesâ˜ș

Never did the bar scene as a single.  Depends on the bar, I suppose.  Either you get hit on and some free drinks or your don't.
