I frequently go to lunch alone. Not because I have no one to go with, but sometimes I enjoy the quite time to be in my own thoughts. In my previous job I used to travel for business a fair amount. Almost every time I travel alone. Of course I would be working with people while I was there, but at the end of the day they would go home to their families and I would go to my hotel alone. I never minded.
I don't think I would like to be alone all the time. But because it's so crazy at my house (with the kids and all) the quiet time was welcome.
I think when I have to come to an empty home everyday I will not like being alone as much.
I am gay man in his 40's who was married for 18 years to a straight woman, who is still my very best friend. We have 4 children together. She is now remarried and we still want to be supportive of each other and make a stable family for our kids.
