When I was younger i don’t think I can remember going into a restaurant and eating alone. I do it a lot now. It started when I was in relationship with someone who would go out with me and then spend all of dinner talking to other people. So basically I was eating by myself.
i do it a lot now. I usually take something to read. well I always take something to read. even if I don’t always read it. I also take my time now more than I use to. I would be in and out in 20 minutes. I would over tip. I would never order anything I hadn’t already tasted and I wouldn’t send anything back if I didn’t like it.
Yesterday, I went to brunch at Wahoo! ordered French Toast and Grits; was brought cheese grits. sent them back immediately. Read my book, ate my food. 35 minutes. and then just sat for 10 minutes after I paid my check. I have learned that I don’t have to be rushed.
