Can't stand the thought of being cooped up indoors but get nervous eating out alone? For some, eating out and going about their day alone comes second nature to them. After all, who doesn't need to be in their own company from time to time? But for others, the struggle is REAL. 

Here are 5 ways you can beat anxiety from eating out alone, with a good old dose of tough love from us! 

1) Stop thinking everyone around you is staring at you or wondering why you're alone. Even if it's clear you're eating out solo, it's highly unlikely those who've spotted you think you're a loser. Unless they're bored AF and are losers themselves, they're most likely just going about their day exactly like you are!

2) Use this opportunity to collect your thoughts; organise your week, decide what you'll dress up as for Halloween this year, people watch, or simply daydream! Revel in this quote from Winnie the Pooh: Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.

3) Savour your food. Eating alone at home can be standard practice but given you won't necessarily be thumbing through a magazine or playing on your phone, it makes sense to take advantage of the rarity that is enjoying a dish you A) Didn't have to make and B) Picked out of all the other items in the menu because, DELICIOUS. 

4) Enjoy feeling like you're a real grown up. Not that you aren't a real grown up already but eating out alone is something we see adults do on a regular basis. They exude confidence and apathy at sitting alone at a table and really seem like they have their sh*t together. You too can play Grown Up!

5) Dress up. It's your prerogative to look however and wear whatever you want when you're in your own company but if you still find the idea of eating out alone iffy, you can always fall back on a super cute outfit to project confidence!

Good luck!

It's not uncommon for someone to wonder whether their workplace behaviour is questionable at times, or to be in need of a guide with which to compare the practices of that of their colleagues! Keeping in mind that workplace etiquette can differ from industry to industry, there are general dos and don'ts that apply to every work environment... 


Do: Wait patiently in line for the printer/coffee machine/restroom. No-one likes to be rushed when machinery and/or bodily functions are challenging enough to control as it is. 

Don't: Complain loudly about slow wi-fi, broken air conditioning/heating, or the continuous blare of someone's car alarm for a prolonged period of time. Chances are, everyone around you will be experiencing the same frustrations so unless something can be done about it ASAP, either A) become part of the solution or B) STFU. 

Do: Own up and apologise if you've made a mistake or did something wrong. Avoid being defensive and take constructive criticism with dignity, even if it's killing your pride or you have to hear it from someone you don't like in the slightest (like the office gossip who blabbed about your hangover to management last Wednesday). 

Don't: Steal other people's stuff. This might sound like a given but no matter how well you get along with someone, don't assume it's okay to use up the last of their almond milk without asking. It's the little things in life that can really brighten someone's day and you never know how much an almond milk chai latte can help their workflow.

Do: Get mad inwardly. If someone's annoyed you or let you down, let it go but CHALK IT UP! It's not holding a grudge so much as getting on with it and keeping note of who and who hasn't been supportive, dependable, or willing to learn. This could come in handy in like, 50 years time when you've finally landed your dream role and need to surround yourself with the right people. 
 
Don't: Be a suck up. People can see right through it and it's really, really embarrassing. Treat everyone with dignity and respect and not just the select few you wish to impress.

First dates are stressful. Especially blind first dates. Or internet/dating app first dates. What to wear, where to meet, what to order, whether to kiss or not. But these aren't the only things you should be worrying about- there are a lot of first date red flags that you should watch out for. Escaping out the bathroom window isn't just something that happens in rom-coms, sometimes it's something you may actually have to do. 


Red Flags Pre-Date 


1. He's "off the grid" 

If someone tells you they don't have social media, or have really really private profiles, then hate to break it to you, but they're probably not single. Also it's just really f*cking rude to not have public social for your potential date and her friends to stalk. How else are we meant to find out everything about you before we even meet? I'm kidding (but not really). 

2. He opens with a d*ck pic. 

Pretty sure everyone knows this red flag, and wouldn't even respond let alone set up a date, but just incase, let me break it down. He's after one thing, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, not everyone dates to meet the love of their life, but pal at least be subtle. 

3. He's SUPER keen. 

Being keen/excited for your first date is lovely and cute, but being super keen isn't. If he's needy before you've even gone on a first date then that's a serious red flag. Run a mile. Or do the modern equivalent of blocking his number. 

4. He flakes out a lot. 

You've planned this upcoming first date three times now. He always has to "work late" or gets a "stomach bug". This may just be a coincidence, but it probably isn't. Maybe he's broke and doesn't want to admit he can't afford drinks, or maybe he's just a f*ck boy and hoping you'll send him a nude without ever meeting. 

Red Flags During-Date 


1. They forget your name. 

If he's mixing up your name then it's probably because he's dating a number of other women. Or if he only calls you things like "hun", he ain't the one. It's one name to learn FFS. 

2. Talks about his ex all night. 

Bringing up an ex on a first day is a big no no, unless it's really vital to a funny anecdote then stay well clear of this. If he brings every conversation back to his ex then get out. He's not over her, and he's basically using you as a free therapist. 

3. Brings up how much they earn. 

He's either bragging or trying to get you to pay his half. Finance chat on a first date is way too heavy. It's basic social etiquette. 

4. Orders for you. 

This is not cute, it's creepy. On a first date there's no way someone knows what taste you have. Three years in it's a sweet gesture that shows how well they know you, three minuets in is controlling and weird. I wanted f*cking red wine not a vodka tonic. 

5. Doesn't go halves. 

This works both ways, if he absolutely won't let you pay your half it gets awkward, or if he assumes you're paying for all of it. Just go Dutch people! 


If any of these happen, your best bet is to run a mile or at least be cautious proceeding. If he sends you a d*ck pic, block/delete his number/name and shame him on Twitter. Go forth and conquer those first dates...
