Table For One?

found via google images

Yes. It's just me. Why is that so strange? Why have we decided as a society that if someone wants to sit down in a restaurant.. alone.. that it's really odd, nay.. depressing? I quite enjoy eating out by myself. Sometimes I wonder if those around me are constantly on edge waiting to see who meets me. Or if my server feels sorry for me because I don't have any friends who would join me. NOT THE CASE PEOPLE. I just enjoy a meal once in a while, in solidarity. Whenever Andrew & I are out, and we happen upon a man or someone sitting at a table alone, Andrew generally says something along the lines of.. "poor guy, let's invite him over." (ok, so the invitation is a bit of an exaggeration on most accounts. ..but I'm sure he's said it at least once). It's not a sad thing to do! Maybe I'm just strange. Maybe I am the only person in this world that enjoys once in a while, eating out without trying to get a story out inbetween every bite.
Oh well, I'll keep at it. If you see me alone, in a restaurant someday, don't be sad for me.
The end.

Is it really so strange??

NOT strange. Guess what I did for my birthday... worked out alone... went shopping for swim suit solo and went to lunch mi uno and read almost every section of the paper. LOVED it!

I went and saw X-Men 3 in the theater alone and everyone thought I was crazy but I LOVED it. I have never enjoyed a movie as much as that. I wasn't worried about other people, I wasn't trying to come up with something smart to say at the end, and I didn't feel rushed. It's not my favorite movie of all time, but it was my most enjoyable movie watching experience.

So no. You are not weird.

I don't think that you are strange. I would love to break away and eat yummy food while reading my fav book. All I would need then is a bubble bath to complete it all!

Some of the happiest people on earth are those who are comfortable just being with themselves.
