I find myself eating alone quite a bit in the dining hall, the main reason being that the friends/teammates I've met in college so far (only been here going on 2 weeks) all have different schedules. I'm usually a confident person, but there is just something about eating alone in public that lowers my confidence for that time being, its kind of a hard feeling to explain. It's almost like the feeling you get when you feel as if everyone is watching you, and I just try to get out of there soon as possible.
I've tried to join others that are also sitting alone but that doesn't really help due to the conversation always dying quickly.
Anyone else going through this or has been through it? Suggestions?
