What Things *Should* Be Socially Acceptable, But Aren't?

I wish I could eat alone at a restaurant without feeling awkward.

Have you ever felt uncomfortable doing something that shouldn't have made you feel bad? Well, let me tell you, you aren't alone.

So, we want to know, what things do you wish were more socially acceptable?

Maybe you want it to be much more socially acceptable to wear any type of clothing in any situation. Men should be able to wear nice dresses and be considered "workplace appropriate" just as much as women should be able to wear a suit and tie.

Or, perhaps in the ~before times~, you always wanted to go to the movies alone, but felt like you may be perceived as lonely or weird.

Maybe you just want to take yourself out to a fancy dinner alone and not have the host ask you three times if it's just a party of one, and then proceed to look at you like someone just ran over your dog.
