Do you ever eat alone? I mean when you go out do you feel comfortable heading to a nice café or restaurant, being seated at a table and checking out the menu before you order. Maybe order a nice drink while you wait.

What if you live alone? Maybe you prepare quick ingredients throw them together and finish your meal quickly, just to get it over and done with.
