It's good that it's eating. Mostly just time and patience, then. Leave him alone as much as possible, make sure he has hides in which to feel secure, and let him get comfy in his own time.

As was mentioned, lettuce isn't really very nutritious. Peas are OK in limited quantities - they usually like them A LOT, but they're not good in large amounts. They're more of a treat, or an enticement to eat if they go off food for some reason.

And don't worry about him getting lonely. They don't. Usually a cage mate is more trouble than it's worth. I've only ever had one permanent pairing work out (so far) and it's a mother and daughter. All the other times didn't fly in the long term, so I have seven very large, very expensive to heat cages in my house now. Sigh....
