Fiance always insists on booths so we can sit side by side. It used to bug me because I felt like I had no elbow room and that people would think we were lame LOL. Now I like it, plus if he doesn’t sit across from me then he can’t stare at how horribly messy I am at eating. Do you guys have a certain seating arrangement?

We sit across each other if it’s just us. Next to each other when out with others.

We like booths too, but we sit across from each other. I’ve seen couples sit on the same side like you do and thought it kinda seems nice to sit next to each other, but I just can’t; it seems weird not to face each other while talking/eating. The exception would be if we were at a bar/restaurant and both wanted to see t.v.s or a stage area or something like that.

We tend to sit side by side. Mister will occasionally change the direction of the table if he can make a side by side situation work. Otherwise we sit across from each other. It used to make me self-conscious, like other people would stare and judge. Then I realized I didn’t really care and would rather sit next to him! (Of course, we try really hard not to interfere with the aisles for the wait staff.)

The bf definitely prefers side-by-side lol. I don’t think I really have a preference, if I do it’s probably across from each other. But I really don’t care as long as I don’t feel crowded.

haha this is actually funny because I’ve tried sitting next to him when it’s just the two of us – and he HATES that. we normally always sit facing each other – because, to us – that makes better conversation! :p

We prefer booths, but never really sit in one particular way. Sometimes we sit on the same side, particularly if there is a window to look out of.
We will sit together if it’s cold, or if we’re feeling particularly disgusting to the other diners . We also sit together if we are out with a group.
Most of the time, we sit straight across.

Across. I can’t talk to him and not look at him.

We like sitting across from eachother. I don’t really like sitting next to someone because then you get a crick in your neck from looking at them.

We usually sit across from one another and usually with my fiance sitting in the best seat of people watch, which isn’t always good since he’s easily distracted!

we sit across from each other…I like looking directly at Teddy when we talk…if we are in a large group we sit next to each other….I had an ex that always had us sit next to each other when we ate just the two of us… but I really didnt like it.

We sit across when it is just the 2 of us – I can’t have a conversation with someone without facing them, and it is weird to sit all crossways in a booth to try to semi-face each other. Within a group we usually sit side by side (because within a group we converse with the group rather than focusing on each other)

We almost always sit across from each other – I think it’s really awkward to sit on the same side! But, every once in a while Fiance will be in a particularly lovey mood and want to sit next to me. It’s sweet, but I feel like it’s so much harder to hold a conversation like that!
I also always try to sit on the side that has the “better” view of people. Not because I like to see, but because my Fiance gets REALLY distracted if he has a good people-watching view, and it’s impossible to talk to him!
