Oddball Question

#244244 1 year, 5 months ago
Have you ever been to a restaurant and see a couple on a date, and they both are sitting on the same side of the booth?

What exactly is up with that anyway? You would think they would sit on opposite sides and look at each other and talk.

Seems like it happens in the south more but you see it everywhere.

Not saying its bad or anything like that, but it does make me wonder why.

so you can be closer, throw your arm around her. i mean, if you want to face her all you gotta do is turn your head and/or body 90 degrees.
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

Well..I guess...but if you need to paw each other that much shouldn't you just skip dinner and go home.

Do you do this Burt?

Does anyone here?

pawing each other is different than putting your arm around your lady.

i have done it in a more casual setting, by girls request. by nature, i sit across or if that's too far 90 degrees on a square table.

Is it more important to look at someone or paw that person? Do you get a stiff neck when u turn your head 45 degrees. What is the traditional modus operandi in the Midwest dinner and dancing scene. Cultural norms play a significant factor in proper etiquette for dinner with either significant others and / or one night stand dates. All factors need to be processed b4 making significant determinations about proper angles during dinner dates.

if it's a booth normally sit across from. if it's a table normally on the angle or 90 deg from.

What about in NYC Dave?

You don't usually see that there do you.

And let's face it, in NYC you could see just about anything.

This depends on how crowded the restaurant is.

In a four seat booth both parties sit on the same side of the booth, leaving the other side empty.

Being crowded doesn't play into it.

Maybe at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame the girls may group up like that, but at McSorley's Ale House? Or any one of the famed Blarney Stone pubs...
