    Same side sitters

    So this is something that has baffled me for the longest time, but I thought maybe it was just me. Sitting on the same side as your gf/bf/significant other at restaurants, weird and creepy or cute and romantic, what say you?

    Same-Side-Sitters: Acceptable or Annoying? (10 Photos) : theCHIVE

    Obviously the right answer is weird and creepy, but I'd like to hear from any same side sitters we might have on CF.

    It's weird. Unless you're a siamese twin.

    Re: Same side sitters

    I would say when it's just the 2 of you, sitting on the same side is weird & creepy.

    If with a group or on a double date, though, I would probably prefer side by side.

    Re: Same side sitters

    I hate sitting on the couch next to my girlfriend, let alone sitting down next to her in a restaurant when a perfectly acceptable solution is right there.

    Re: Same side sitters

    What about at a round table? The wife and I went to BWW the other day and they sat the 2 of us at a round table meant for 6. We sat next to each other, but everything about it felt wrong. But I don't think there was a correct answer to this problem!

    Ok so you and your girl doing this is bad enough obviously....But I have a friend that when we go to restraunts, say twin peaks for example, he gets all ****** he cant see so he insists on sitting next to you while your eating whether its a booth or a high top table. It is seriously weird. Obviously when he does this I get up and just move to the side w/ no view.

    He then just stares creepily at people. More often then not he gets in an argument at a bar for staring at people. When sitting in a booth he will turn around and just stare at the people behind us like nothings wrong with it.

    Side sitting isn't okay. It just isn't.

    Sitting right across from each other is too businesslike, IMO. I like the 90 degree angle when sitting at a table, but in a booth I prefer straight across because same side in a booth is really strange.

    A large round table is a little tricky, I'd say atleast 1 chair separating you and your wife should be the minimum. For a small round table, say 4 chairs, I would say it's acceptable for one person to be on the North side and the other to be due East, just make sure you err towards South East and not North East of course.
