DrunkenYodaZen: The only time I feel awkward when dining alone is when the hostess is trying to get me to sit at the bar even though the place is relatively empty.

optikeye: DrunkenYodaZen: The only time I feel awkward when dining alone is when the hostess is trying to get me to sit at the bar even though the place is relatively empty.WTF? The bar is BEST place for dining alone. You can chat with the bartender, get more drinks more quickly; and there might be a few other people at the bar area you speak with.
namegoeshere: Is it rude to read at the table if you are dining alone?
LaurenAguilera: I always bring a book. A real book, hardcovered and old time-y...not my kindle, because f*ck it... if I'm eating alone I want to look snobby and pretentious like maybe I'm too important to have a dinner date.

Always considerate, though sqq head phones are a must
Madison_Smiled: What if I want to sit with Snufkin?
pippi longstocking: I dine alone because I'm an unpleasant bastard, not because I'm a quirky individual that is just shy. Get this farking thing away from me if you even want me to come back!
FLMountainMan: I used to eat out for every meal and one or two of them was always alone. Never saw the big deal in it. Brought a book to read, relaxed, enjoyed myself. I usually preferred it.
Pants full of macaroni!!: By the way, this is the second thread in as many days that suggests that those of us who are Alone and who go to restaurants Alone are supposed to feel BAD about it. Has it ever occurred to Society In General that there are some people who simply function better when they're not with other people? We are doing just fine by ourselves and we don't need your shaming or your pity.
phaseolus: Ever feel self-conscious eating out alone?Add me to the long list of farkers saying "Nope".
Ker_Thwap: I dine out alone when I've done a poor job of meal planning, have an urge for some difficult to cook meal, am away from home, and basically when I'm hungry. I'm content with my solitude.
