    Absolutely.  What do I care what people think.

    It beats having sex alone.

    I think I would be comfortable if I had a newspaper or magazine to look at instead of just sitting there looking around.

    I don't want to care what people think about some things--but I guess I do.

    I liked Daffy Duck's response! Although I am married, there are many times when I dine alone. Either to grab a couple of quick hot dogs or even go out for lunch or supper when my wife is not available. I see nothing wrong with it and I usually keep my self occupied reading stuff on my Droid cell phone!

    I love to eat out and although it is more fun with people, I am fine dining alone.

    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...

    Absolutely.  I think everyone should be comfortable being alone or doing things alone, like eating or going to movies.  To hear "I can't do that," because it involves being alone is a boundary that just needs to be crossed, or a fear that just needs to be faced.  You miss out on opportunities otherwise.  If you're comfortable with yourself and being alone with your own thoughts, then there should be no problem hopping up on that stool at the counter and ordering breakfast.  If you're more concerned about what people think, then you need to start reevaluating your level of security and build it up.  When you go somewhere alone, it displays your level of confidence and security.  Go get that burger at the counter.  Do it!
