Let your smartphone be your friend
Undoubtedly smartphones are your best friends especially when you are alone or trying to escape that lonely expression on your face. Don’t hassle, take out your phone and start clicking selfies, or you can chat with your friend, or maybe using Google as a time pass is another option. Just saying…
Socialize & entertain others
Not all the time it works but smiling and making others smile is the least hurting thing I guess for others, I mean no one will punch you in your face for a little giggle. This will also help you increase and make your social etiquette’s even better.
Just focus on your food
This is a bit calorie gaining tip but when you are all by yourself eating at a restaurant, all you care about is the food in front of you, chances are you may eat more than expectation, considering you have no partner you may order a lot as a part of being sympathetic towards yourself, just focus on your food but remember those skinning jeans that are slight more fitted, just slightly..
Eat whatever you like, I repeat, WHATEVER you like
There’s no one to judge you for eating those fried octopus, nor anyone would stop you to order those snake soups or crab fried rice, be your own judge and you can order simply whatever you like, this will also let you know your needs and may be the unnecessary ones too.
Or make an even healthier choice for yourself
Dining alone can make you gain calories but on the other hand it can also make you choose a very healthy optional diet for yourself, as in my case when I am eating with my family or a group of friends, I avoid ordering salads for myself just in case others may think I am on a diet or just showing it off, but when I eat alone I know there’s no one to judge me, so bang on with all those salads and healthy meals.
Choose a bar seat
Possibly the best way to escape that lonely look on your face and the best option to learn how to eat alone without feeling strange in a foreign city, select a bar seat if your restaurant offers one, this will only let you have ‘you’ by your side and your bartender probably, and you can also remain focused on you food, plus this will even help you socializing with the nearby lonely diners.
