I eat most meals along also, but I have been single my whole life, (I'm 49 now) and I am use to it. It does not bother me. I eat in front of the TV; I actually slow down and eat slower that way. If I were to eat in a completely quiet house I would just end up eating too quickly and probably eat more than I should. My only exception is when I eat outdoors; sometimes when the weather is nice, I take my meal out on my porch and sit at my table out there; not sure why, but I don't mind eating in the quiet then.
