You absolutely have no problem dining alone.
You even catch the occasional movie by yourself.
After all, what's wrong with a little solitude sometimes, right?
You're in a restaurant where you're enjoying a meal and absorbing the ambiance.
A group from a nearby table sends a representative over to invite you to join them for dinner.
You thank them but decline.
They insist. You politely decline once more.
Within earshot, someone (under their breath) at the table says "Let her continue to look pitiful. She must be a dreadful loser and that's why she's alone."
What do YOU do?
