Hey, important traveling business ladies and/or sassy single women who are spunky and sassy enough to take vacations alone: isn’t dining alone just the worst? You have to pretend you’re on the phone, or worse, read something to avoid the penetrating stares of other, happier, coupled-up diners. Don’t worry, there’s a website to deal with that. Invite For a Bite helps women meet up to avoid the dreadful scourge of eating alone in a restaurant while traveling.
Why just women? IFAB owner Cressida Howard tells CNN, “As soon as you introduce the idea of men and women meeting for meals, it becomes almost impossible to distinguish it from a dating site.” So women it is.
