I went into a coffee shop today because I had some extra time before an appointment. It was pretty crowded and there were no open tables. A stranger saw that I was looking for a place to sit, and offered to share his table with me.
My significant other asked how I felt that we often hang out with her friend group. I expressed that I enjoy their company, but I also would like to strike a balance of alone time and time with friends. She ended up agreeing. It was a relief that she brought up this topic!
A stranger in line at a fast food place knew she would take a while and realized I seemed in a hurry. She stepped aside and told me I could order before her.
