    I can totally relate to this! For years I’d rather buy takeaway, eat and walk or not eat at all rather than eat alone. Eventually I couldn’t bear the plastic waste I was generating and decided to just sit down and eat! Like most things, it gets easier the more you do it. And I (like to think that I) am a better (ie more thick-skinned) person for it.

    curious, though – why do people glare at you when you’re on your phone while food is being cooked??

      I love that you now eat alone and are confident about it too! Oh I get glares as they think it’s rude. It might just be a Canadian thing… It’s not like I was shouting or anything! It’d just be the same as if I was have a conversation with another person. Hehe.

    Great post! I travel alone often and don’t mind eating alone. I usually read a novel (on my Kindle on my phone) while I eat.

    But one thing I do hate is eating alone in an empty restaurant. I’d much rather have the buzz of other people dining around me!
