I've had a lot of solo meals over the past decade.
Looking back on it, I realize it's a skill that requires lots of practice.
From where to sit to what you can bring, here are seven tips I think can help anyone get more comfortable dining alone.
I've eaten alone at restaurants a lot for my job over the past two years, but it's also something I've done since college. Whenever I'm asked about a solo meal I had, I'm consistently met with the reaction of, "Oh my gosh, I could never," or "I wish I could do that." The reality is, if you want to, you totally can.
Thinking about it now, I've realized it certainly is a skill. But it's a skill I believe anyone can sharpen if they're willing to put in the work and feel uncomfortable along the way.
Here are some of the things I've learned that help me get to a place where I do enjoy going out by myself.
Solo dining isn't just for single people who don't have local friends
If you hold that idea in your head, pack its bags and kick it right out the door.
I've dined alone while single, in a relationship, and while being offered other plans with the friends I do very much have. Sometimes I just need to take myself out and be reminded that I can function — quite well! — as a single entity whenever I choose to do so.
And guess what? There's also nothing wrong with dining or going out solo if you are in a situation where you don't feel like you have people to socialize with. In fact, it's a great way to meet people. Maybe you moved somewhere new or are in the process of making new friends. (If that's you, congratulations!) But that's a whole other set of tips for a different skill to learn.
Don't be so hard on yourself
In a world where everything revolves around showing off what you're doing and who you're with, it can feel really taxing to do things on your own if you're not already into it. But it's OK to feel awkward, to push yourself, and to try taking tiny steps in the direction of being more independent.
