I always sit alone at lunch in the same place because I don't see the few friends I have at lunch and personally I'm really reserved so it's easier not to speak because I'm bad at it, this couple and their friend started to sit at the table I usually sit at, but now i ask myself ( do they think I'm antisocial and sad?) because I'm just sitting there listening to music, not sad at all, but I would like to know what do people think of a person sitting alone, people usually prevent sitting around me unless there are no tables left and I guess it's because they think I'm antisocial? I don't know? you nice people of gag tell me.🙂
Does sitting alone by yourself makes you look antisocial and sad?

I always almost sit alone. I see myself as "Antisocial". And I would probably look at others the same way. Being by yourself is not a sign that you're sad. Sure, everyone has sad days every once in a while, and that's normal. There are way more people who want some alone time no matter how social and outgoing they are.1
I've sitting alone by myself just thinking about all the stupid desicions I've made in the past and people do look at me like something's wrong. But no not everyone will think you're anti-social.1
Yes for someone who doesn't think or never sat alone.1
nah i do it all the time when listening to music or reading a book0
No just look like your enjoying your own company0

Sadly a lot of people assume that. If you're an introvert who loves being alone, then they will assume that you don't want to be bothered. If they see you're listening to music, then they will leave you alone. It doesn't make you antisocial. But others will believe that you are and automatically judge you.1
I think it depends on ur body language or facial expression maybe? I can be the same way where I'll just sit alone somewhere because I'm shy and I don't know anyone, but I also have resting bitch face. So people who I've met or talk to LATER on always tell me that I looked angry or mean XD1
Sometimes if I see someone sitting alone and they look sad, I'll go and ask how they're doing and chat with them a bit. However, if they have headphones in or look like they want to be alone I leave them alone. I don't deem them antisocial though. That's just me, I'm not sure what others think 😊1
I think it depends on how you sit & your facial expression haha. I often sit on the bench in my faculty waiting for my friends to arrive when I'm early and nobody ever seems to think anything of it.0
Nope sometimes I like being by myself1
Depends on what they are doing. If I went to lunch and saw someone sitting by themselves and writing/drawing something, reading a novel/magazine or listening to music and eating I wouldn't consider it to be strange or unusual, but if I saw someone who looked around and stared at people while alone that would seem odd. I don't know what kind of place it is. Is it a standing burger place or a restaurant or a cafeteria?1

I don't make assumptions. I like minding my own damn business. I don't know their life.1
