In a restaurant dinner for two, is it more romantic to sit side by side or face to face? Why?
Side by side is where I like to sit, but actually it's more romantic to sit face to face. I think so because each can see into the eyes, the very soul, of his/her partner.
I say face to face. It's more personable & you can communicate better. You can always play footsie under the table.
Actually it depends upon the two out to dinner. There's a plus to sitting next to one another - so one can touch the other, but then again, sitting across from one another, the other can communication - only with words, but body language.
For me, I like to do both at different times.
i would say face to face because it is more natural when you are having a conversation at dinner. Also, sometimes it can be a little awkward if one person is left handed and one person is right handed and you are trying to eat dinner side by side. Nothing kills romance like worrying that you're going to elbow your partner in the side when trying to use your knife at dinner.
You can research the expert opinions, but what is really most important is what the two people on the romantic dinner date think! On first dates, I think it's better to sit face-to-face so you can see your date's face, expressions and nonverbal communication. I wouldn't feel very comfortable sitting beside someone I didn't know well. Later on, in a close relationship, it's much more romantic to sit next to each other. Better for hand-holding and maybe a little kiss between bites!
I always sit side by side during a romantic dinner, and I will change the restaurant's seating arrangement to make it this way, because I want to sit and kiss and cuddle my partner during our romantic dinner - it's much more intimate than holding hands across the table if you're seated that way.
I a restaurant, you should face your dinner partner for ease in exchanging conversation.
I prefer face to face when go to dinner with my hubby. We can make communication more easier and of course I like to see his face.
It is more romantic to sit opposite each other. This way you can not only communicate verbal but also non-verbally. One of the most romantic things you can do on a date is offer your date a taste of your food and then reach across with the food on your fork to them all the while looking into their eyes.
I think face to face, because I like to be able to sit and look at him and it is much better for communication... but after dinner well, we have sometimes been known to move side by side, and have a little cuddle or just feel closer, which is nice.
Mostly opposite unless a very big table in a crowd then better next to each other !
yes play footsie , hold hands gaze into each others eyes !!
opposite.. so that I can easily see her eyes and her smile... while exchanging jokes and anything..
I personally prefer face to face. That way I can feel intimate and enjoy a conversation with him while looking at him. I can also enjoy knowing that he is looking at me. Facing each other creates positive attraction body language. Snuggling up side by side is fun, of course, but we can always do that after the dinner!
Since my wife's favorite restaurant is a fondue place, we sit side-by-side and I do all the cooking. Guys, take your date to a fondue restaurant for dessert if nothing else, especially if she's a big fan of chocolate. You won't be sorry.
I would say the answer would be it depends how touchy-feely you and your dinner date are. Most everyone here has said opposite one another. That surprised me.
Personally, I like side-by-side.
It entirely depends on the two. I personally would consider to sit face to face. In that I want to know the person I am dating and eye contact is very important. I want to feel her presence, I want to know if she is a good listener.
Sitting face to face is what I prefer. And I think most people feel the same...
For some reason, I find it incredibly sweet when I see an elderly couple sitting side by side (I actually even referenced it once in a poem). On the other hand, if I see a younger couple doing it I just think it's 'overkill'. There's something sweet though about an elderly couple that still wants to be that close, and share the same 'point of view', literally.
I always liked to sit face to face , so that i can see all the pretty expressions she expresses and also see in her pretty eyes and admire her
Definitely (for me) side by side in a corner that has somewhat dull-lighting.

Do you think another city is more romantic than Paris?I could put "romantic" in quotation marks like this as I haven't been and don't want to assume there is truth to this labelling (and people must have diverse experiences in different places), but you hear it many times! I heard it...
