How to Safely Enjoy a Restaurant on your Own
Many people feel that it might be uncomfortable or not enjoyable to sit in a restaurant on your own and enjoy a meal. However, if you are comfortable in yourself, then restaurants are designed to provide a relaxed and fun place to eat, and there should be plenty of things to amuse you in the restaurant so that you can enjoy your meal without company. There are some other issues which you should pay attention to, though, such as your personal safety when eating alone, and how to be more comfortable with lots of other people around you. Here are some tips for enjoying your meal when you are on your own.
- Ask to sit against the wall. If you are eating on your own then you are much more likely to have your possessions stolen or to have other problems if you are sat in the middle of the restaurant, with tables all around you. Ask to be places against a window or wall so that you can keep an eye on what is going on around you.
- Don’t drink too much. Many restaurants will try to push an entire bottle of wine onto each table that sits down. However, if you are on your own, a whole bottle of wine is a lot to drink, even with food. In this case you should be firm and ask either for a single glass on its own, or just a soft drink.
- Bring a book. If you really don’t feel comfortable sitting in a restaurant and eating on your own with no distractions, you can always bring a book or a magazine to enjoy whilst you eat. This will make you feel less self-conscious, and keep you entertained.
- Be firm with staff. Just as you would if you were with another person, if something goes wrong or you feel that you are not getting the service you deserve, you must be strong with staff and demand the best service they can offer you.
