Another option is the kind of booth where the bench goes around the table so you are sitting not on the same side but one on the end and one on the side (kitty corner?) to each other. You can be closer and still look at each other.

Defintely across from each other. It seems weird when people sit on the same side of a booth. There is a couple every day at starbucks like that and she has a stuffed moose in her lap that she seems to talk through. Oh they make me sick I'm starting to wonder if he might be a therapist

Especially if the glasses are being refilled regularly!

If you go out in a foursome it is correct etiquette to sit opposite your date and the other couple to sit next to the opposite sex.

Funny. I do this topic. I call it 'face to face or Side by Side?'. I like to hear the reactions. We're side by side.

Anybody I've ever dated would probably have killed me if I'd ordered for her, but then again, I usually end up with the really independent types.

Last night we had dinner with Doozer and Caron and after we sat down, Mr. BAW and I started laughing because without thinking, we sat next to each other instead of across...I ended up looking into Doozer's eyes over dinner
