Back in the day when I traveled for my job, I often dined alone in other cities however I rarely did when I was home – for some reason I was too self conscience to do it in my home city!
With my career change to a Realtor, I have found it is often necessary or even more relaxing to eat alone, mostly during “off” hours – breakfast between 9 and 10 is a lot less crowded as is lunch between 2 and 3. I love my flexible schedule!
I read ALOT and generally use this time to read – I always have a book with me or in the car. So tell me…what do you do to pass the time while dining alone? Do you have restaurants that are more comfortable than others? Or do you not do it all? Would love to hear!
