eating alone is very painful. I would eat very, very less or sometimes I don't eat at all.
On several occasion I have gone hungry, as I skip lunch when my partner at work is on leave. Right now he is in Delhi. And for the past couple of days, I have taken my lunch properly.
I love at least one companion for dining out. At night it is rule that all 4 members of my family have dinner together.
I am glad if it is large family gathering for luncheon or for a dinner.
Oh! I am hungry, need to rush for the dinner... my kids are waiting...
