  • I don't bother being embarrassed, but I don't hold my silverware "right". I still hold them like I did as a child, and I find it awkward to do it the "right" way.
  • I am not sure but when I was 16 my girlfriend was to shy to eat in front of me.
  • I have a friend who has Parkinson's Disease, which makes eating for him somewhat messy, so he prefers not to eat in front of other people unless he knows them very well.
  • They are unsightly?
  • I still get shy eating food like cheeseburgers in front of guys I like.
  • I was for a while. When I left prison, I used to wrap my arm around my plate to protect my food. I took me a few months to adapt again.
  • I have a hard time eating in front of people sometimes. Don't know why. If I'm at work, I wait till everyone else is done, then sit at my desk when I know nobody will be around. Totally a psychological issue. I don't eat in front of my roommate much. I can eat at restaurants easily, but just because I have no choice. I think maybe it's because I was told once that I ate too fast, but then, I only ate too fast because I needed to finish and get away from eating in front of people.
  • I dont like to eat in front of people because they'll look at me and eating is a gross looking thing to do
  • I get embarrassed eating in front of people, and I've always been that way. I am a little over weight so I think it stems with people thinking I'm fat and they will make fun of me if they see me eating.
  • Because: The goups use their fingers The goups don't use a knife They wipe their face on the tablecloth They lead disgusting lives The goups they laugh while eating And loud and fast they chew that is why, I am glad, Im not a goup Are you? That could be the reason:)
  • Eating usually isn't a very attractive thing. And if you eat something particularly big and fattening, people might think you're a pig.
  • This is a really simple but puzzling question. There should be no reason why anyone should be embarrased to eat in front of somone. It is completely natural (by that logic, you shouldn't be embarrased to fart in front of anyone either). As long as you display proper table manners (obviously if your eating in the congo, table manners would be different than New york city) and eating habbits, we should be fine. Even a great big fat person (silence of the lambs) should not be embarrased to eat in front of somone. They have to eat as well...dont they? They may need to eat less, but they do need to eat.
  • They probably feel guilty about their eating, and possibly have been raised to feel guilty and on edge. Lots of families out there say the wrong things about being fat, eating too much and being a pig. You'd be surprised at how conversations around children can affect them later in life. It's not a good thing at all.
  • you know, i'm one of the people that has a hard time eating in front of new people...i'm not sure why i'm like this, so i can't fully tell you...i know that once i'm comfortable enough with you, then i can eat in front of you, so i guess it might just be a comfort issue...at least for me...that's probably the best i can give ya :)
  • sloppy jooooes
  • Maybe they eat like a pig and don't want others to see that.
  • False teeth Not sure of their Table Manners No teeth I have a Great Aunt who has a tremor in her hand and lips and she will not go out to eat anymore because she sometimes spills food or drink.
  • I think the worst thing to be eating in front of other people is Buffalo chicken Wings!!! How can you be ladylike while eating with your hands and sucking the chicken off the bone, come on now??!! LOL
  • Hi, I have the same problem. I am 5'5 and 119 lbs, but I get REALLY anxious for some reason when I have to eat in front of people. I will just not eat until I can be alone. I have good table manners....it's just a phobia I can't seem to shake.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (DSM IV 300.23)
  • OVER WEIGHT
  • Maybe there was some hurtful stuff going on at his childhood dinners. "Use your knife!" "Don't eat with your fingers!" etc.
  • I don't like eating in front of people I don't know very well, so I'm a bit like that. I'm not sure why, I just don't. Makes me feel self conscious or something.
  • i dont like people watching me eat and i dont like looking at people when they eat i just dont like it..speak to me after ive ate sorta thing lol
