Love it! I think a badge should also be awarded to the single who confidently eats a meal alone at a table in the center of the dining room at a nice restaurant. No, I don’t want to eat at the bar or the table in the back tucked in the corner like I’m ashamed. I also am not going to bring a book to avoid eye contact. If you stare at me, I will stare back at you.

I wish I dined alone more when I was single. It’s very empowering!
