Table for one?
Share This Article:
At a time when “single ladies” and “independent women” are hailed as the ultimate symbols of female empowerment, it seems that we are all ready to throw our hands in the air and demand that our men to put a ring on it. Honestly, is this really a test of our self-reliance? The question I want to ask is: how many of us have the “balls” to have dinner in a restaurant all by ourselves? No book or distractions, in a restaurant where you have to actually book a table. For me, this is a reasonable test of self-assurance: qualities which no doubt form the genetic code of any strong and independent female, right? A male friend told me that he often goes to a noodle bar to eat, and there he always sees other men having lunch. However, women -naaaaa, it doesn’t happen. Women are very often depicted, and to some extent project ourselves, as the sex that lacks self-confidence, the classic example being women always needing an entourage when going to the toilet.
