Few comments re bigger breakfast or lunch - try both! One of the benefits of not being on a diet, or a plan you can adjust things to suit you. You don't need to commit to decide will you be big breakfast or big lunch eater!
I can relate to wanting to be social and I eat with my family at night, but I aslo enjoy eating on my own for breakfast. I love lunching with people too. I don't feel I am giving up on my dinner, I just eat less than before but I still enjoy it. I decline invites for very late dinners most of the time. I do feel anti social sometimes, but I don't drink as much as most adults I know either so often I am out enjoying the company without doing as they do. I still eat for fun, to socialise and enjoy my food but I need proper energy for the day. My day flows better if I have most of my caloreis before 4 pm and lighter dinner, my mood is better, I don't get as easily stressed, I don't fall asleep on the couch at 7 pm. YOu can still enjoy all your meals, having breakast won't stop you doing that.

Also, I often look at info on long term weight loss maintainers and 78% of the national weight control registry eat breakfast, indication that perhaps it is helpful but also - 22% don't as regulary and still do ok.
"Eating breakfast. Nearly 80% of participants report eating breakfast every day, with only 4% reporting never eating breakfast. How might eating breakfast contribute to successful weight maintenance? Although there were no differences in total energy intake between frequent breakfast eaters and less frequent breakfast eaters (three times a week or less), breakfast eaters reported being more physically active"
