"Jesus often did things alone, but it seems he didn't like to eat alone. He invited strangers and friends to eat with him without preconditions and accepted meal invitations from almos anyone"Leonard Sweet, Out of the question into the mystery
Add to checklist - To lunch alone is a boring thing indeed, try to lunch not at a time convenient to me but at a time convenient to join with others to meal.
I knew a mall where the common place to meal were somewhat restricted, therefore they encouraged people to lunch at empty chairs even when the table (for 4 people) where occupied by one or two people. It is ironic to see how embarassing it got to be!
