Do you dare to eat alone?

Do you dare to eat alone?. – I just read this news article on the Singapore Straits website. At NUS – National University of Singapore they are having a campaign on encouraging people to eat alone…Seriously, I think that is the most retarded campaign and use of time and money that could be spent on any campaign.  I travel fairly often and find myself eating alone quite frequently, I cant say that it bothers me or feels uncomfortable, but I guess if I was an insecure person it might.

Last but not least, sometimes it is better to be eating alone…there has been several times that I have eaten alone and would swear that I had a better conversation in my head than other people had with their guest…

Let me know your thoughts and feelings on Eating Alone! Does it bother you? Are you comfortable with it?

  1. Hmm, eating alone… this got me thinking^_^ personally i am self-conscious when i eat alone because i feel like people are watching me. I feel like i look lonely hee hee! But i do have a sort of “me time” every month… solitude at Starbucks, so i can pause and think about life for a while haha.

    “Seriously, I think that is the most retarded campaign and use of time and money that could be spent on any campaign.” +1 on this; i couldn’t agree more!

  2. I LOVE eating alone! I can focus on whatever randomness my mind wanders to, or read if there’s a book that I’m obsessed with, and just enjoy the food and try to figure out what’s in each dish…sometimes the waitstaff seems a little freaked out by my solitude, but who ever said you have to have lunch WITH somebody? Enjoy your own company and be proud of it, I say.

  3. I agree that it’s a retarded campaign. Food is almost always better shared. It’s a time when people can talk without much distraction, except for the food. And whether we like it or not, we’re forced to eat alone most of the time anyway. I travel by myself a lot and I have to eat out by myself. Agree that there is no need to spend money for a campaign on this…


  4. I agree, that is a huge waste of money on a dumb campaign. I have also had good conversations with myself while eating alone though. lol

  5. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So good to find someone with some authentic ideas on this subject. realy thanks for beginning this up. this website is something that’s needed on the net, somebody with a bit originality. helpful job for bringing one thing new to the web!
