Being single isn’t all that bad; you have more freedom and fewer obligations. Dining alone, on the other hand, is a whole different story. Going to a restaurant by yourself can be boring and even uncomfortable. Many restaurants may discourage dining alone, and you may be asked or required to sit at the bar. Even though the stigma associated with dining solo is admittedly not as awful as it used to be, it’s still a situation many singles avoid, and we don’t blame them!
