Is there anything wrong with being seen eating alone in a restaurant?

How did we get here?

 

We saw StringJunky eating alone, with his oddball beacon lit (which I have just remembered is fork-shaped).

Yes, I remember reading somewhere diet only adds a minor portion of the total cholesterol load.

I am a misanthrope most of the time and yes I can see through people and their bullshit most of the time.  

I just need privacy and alone time and you can't blame me for that. 

If you have lived the kind of life that I've lived then you would completely understand why I am a misanthrope.

It’s not selfish to eat alone at a restaurant, and if it’s not selfish and causes no one harm it’s also neither unethical nor immoral... 

It’s fine to eat alone. :P

Oh..I believe that one time stigma had nowadays in our modern world been lessened drastically. Sure, back in the day dining alone was often seen as bring tantamount to being a parish. But now? Hell...it might even be seen as cool or hip by the tech-stetilized millennials crowd.

You know.....too cool for school. Too busy and independent and on the go to be anchored by a dining partner. Or worse! Ye gods! A clinging S/O!

Besides......the hip lone diner could be texting the entire time he dined alone. Which would beg the Aristotelian question....is he really alone? LOL

For more on how it is increasingly acceptable and often even preferred to do things alone...things once meant for socializing...you might wanna read the book Bowling Alone.

Cheers.
