I'm considering just going to a restaurant by myself for a meal and a couple beers cause I have no food and don't want to go grocery shopping and both my roommates are gone, but, it got me thinking. Is it weird to go to a restaurant by yourself?

You don't normally see this happen or at least notice it very much. What do you guys think? Have you ever gone to a sit-down restaurant or pub and gotten a meal for just yourself?

It is not weird to go eat out alone.

More importantly, you shouldn't concern yourself with what others think.  Other people's opinions are of no consequence and if they're negative, they can go shove it anyway.

Go, get a beer, eat some food, enjoy yourself.

  in my opinion eating out alone is really no different then going to a movie or anywhere else by yourself and while a lot of times we see people with others in places such as restaurants and pubs there are some who do go to  those places alone it really doesn,t matter what other people think about you just as long as you are able to have a good time

Nah man, I'd totally do it if I had the money. lol It actually seems pretty normal to me, judging by the people I know in real life and their habits. Besides, as long as the food is good, who cares? :3

I may be hungry while typing this.

There is nothing wrong with a party of one. I really enjoy doing it sometimes. Often, I'll good and read comics on my phone, or something. I feel people who look at it as weird are fried to be alone.

Hm... I'm pretty sure I wrote about eating out alone a while back in another thread lol so no, I don't think eating out alone is weird at all. XD I actually do see people eating out alone quite often, but no one I know thinks it's strange or anything like that. For me, it's a lot more fun to eat with others, but I don't mind eating alone at a restaurant or getting a meal just for myself if the people I usually eat with are busy. =)

Have to post this here. Now, this isn't likely to happen to you. But it can provide context to how awkward it can be eating alone.

No it's not. I mean for a fancy reservation restaurant it may seem a little strange, but at a fast food joint you could go in and out in less than 5 mins and no one would really care if you had someone with you.

Nope, not at all, I've done it, granted not when I was in relationships, but just the other night, I went out and got some dinner, and I was by myself, and that was perfectly fine, not many people were in the restaurant, and I had a nice peaceful meal.

I don't think it is strange at all. I've done it a few times in he past few years and never thought anything of it. Even if other people give you looks or make it out to be more strange than it is, who cares? Enjoy your own company and a nice meal by yourself. At the end of the day, your opinion of the situation and yourself are all that really matter.

Nah. When I have money I even find it easier to eat alone. It's great to eat with friends but eating alone has it's perks too because you're allowed to think and even get work done or whatever. After I go to a movie I usually go out to eat and it's easy to think about upcoming plans for me.

I was thinking about this thread earlier. I might try this Friday, but I work a early morning job, lately real early, so when I get off work, usually it's still breakfast or early lunch. Now there are plenty of places in town to eat, more so locally owned then fast food, etc. There is a place on the other end of town, that has some of the best breakfast food, a little expensive, but worth it. I might stop in there after work and get breakfast and just eat alone. I think it might be relaxing. The reason I say that, I work around people all morning, and there comes a time that maybe I just want to eat some food, and kinda be to myself, at least for the most part. Anyone else feel this way or ever try it? How did you feel?

I've been to fancy restaurants alone. Its not weird.
Sometimes you want good food when you're by yourself. Why is that wrong?

I feel like you are worried that people will judge you.
If that's the case, you can do what zanderlex said and get some work done, or you can pretend to be getting some work done.

Its not weird at all. I often find it easier to just go out to eat alone these days. I've never really thought anything of it before. If others care about something like that don't worry about it, go out and just enjoy yourself.

I don't think it's weird. If anything, it should be something we should do more often. I have gone to have lunch at McDonald's alone during lunch break, but of course that's not a big deal. Can't say I've treated myself to a nice restaurant all alone, but I like the idea of that. The times I've gone out with other people is either awkward, lame, or there's just always something that takes away from the moment. I definitely wouldn't go to a pub to drink alone though, sadly that's not a good idea for me considering how short, small I am and how depraved some people can be. Though I do go to the store and get me some beers or liquor and drink alone at home listening to music or gaming.

I do not think that is weird. Maybe you want to eat alone,no one to annoy you,maybe you want to treat yourself nice. (In my case,I would have a filet mingon.) A lot of people eat alone and it is okay. Besides,do you want to run the risk of having to cover for someone at a restaurant?
