Sit down quietly and eat next to them. No conversation unless that person instigated it. We can be alone or together at the same table.

Probably leave them alone. Honestly, I wish that's what people did for me. I just want to eat without random strangers constantly annoying me ;-;

I look for alone people, since I'm alone. When I started talking if they don't respond I leave them alone and eat my food. There's always a next time and next person.

Hi Skip, I really like people and sometimes we need to remember whatever we're going thru someone else is too and sometimes worst. It's not often people refuse to talk and thank you, thank you :)

It depends on the vibe I get from the person. If they look lonely, I may ask to join them. Most often though, I will find my own empty table and eat by myself.

A stranger .. I would leave alone. I don't know if they prefer it or not. I wouldn't want to make them feel more uncomfortable by putting them on the spot. I would be a stranger approaching them .. And forcing them to answer to me. 

A friend .. I would approach and ask if I could join them

I would ask if they wanted some company and if they say yes I would stay and chat with them and offer them and opportunity to talk of they needed to. If they said no I would tell them where I will be if they change their mind.

I would go up to her/him and say "Hey, can I sit here. It looks like you're sitting alone, I don't like seeing people sitting alone. I can be your friend, if you want?" I would talk to them, tell them about myself and tell them funny jokes. Because I love making people laugh! It won't matter how they look. I won't care what other people would think of me for being their friend and talking to them.

Haha! That's me right there! ... But, if I weren't, I would invite the person to join me/my group. If they decline and seem shy or nervous about it, I don't care. I'm gonna plop myself down on the table and sit with them the whole way through and try to start a conversation. If they seem to have no interest, then I guess I'll just make an excuse to leave the person alone.

It really depends on what your agenda is. If you want to make contact you'll have to analyse his/her body signals to determine if he/she's even open to company and if not prepare yourself for the expected reaction.  You should check out trump techniques, really work
