* In the DisneyChannelOriginalMovie ''Brink'', after the title character has a falling-out with his friends, he approaches them one day while they're eating lunch and says, "Can I sit here?" They all say yes... [[YankTheDogsChain and then as soon as he sits down they get up and leave him there]].

** [[http://www.theonion.com/articles/fucking-loser-at-movie-all-by-himself,33302/ Fucking Loser At Movie All By Himself]]. Obviously not about eating lunch, but going to the movies alone carries the same stigma (just ask [[ImageBoards /tv/]]).

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard.'' Fuli's friends notice that she goes off to hunt by herself, so they decide to join her to make sure she feels included. They then learn that Fuli ''enjoys'' hunting alone and needs time to be by herself sometimes. Moreover, the fact that she needs to be by herself sometimes doesn't mean she doesn't still love her friends.

* Justified in a TearJerker way in ''Anime/AngelBeats''. Due to the system that the afterlife works in, Angel will always eat alone since [[spoiler: being friends with her is automatic grounds to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence]]. [[http://i42.tinypic.com/a48zk2.jpg This picture sums her life up]], and for all we know, she may have lived this "life" for ''years''.

Very much TruthInTelevision. There are introverted people who enjoy the solitude, and even extroverts with normal social lives are known to do it for various reasons. More rarely, there are numerous anxiety disorders that can make one extremely self-conscious and uncomfortable about having others watch them eat.

eat. Another reason for it to happen is that cooking and eating are (somehow) parts of one's culture, so eating together can cause various CultureClash.

When someone is eating lunch alone in a communal context (school, army, etc.), it means he or she is being actively shunned by everyone else, or the student is the New Kid and [[FriendlessBackground has not yet made any friends]]. It rarely ever means that he ''[[LonersAreFreaks chose]]'' to eat lunch by himself. Often, their return into the fold will be symbolized by someone else accepting to have lunch with them. Or if they keep their outcast status, having lunch with them will be a sign of independence of mind and refusing to follow the herd.
