not so sure about side-sitting in a booth, but forms of side-splitting are definitely frowned upon, i mean if you're doing it with hunour, it's fine, but if you do it with the butter knife from the table they ask you to leave the Denny's

in handcuffs no less

Whoever I go out with for dinner or lunch or whatever I would prefer to sit opposite as one talks better that way
If there is a special view or something interesting going on both should be able to see it - even though they have to sit next to oneanother.
If you just have a drink or a cup of coffee and there is a comfortable sofe - like in a bar or cafe why not both sit on sofa instead of with a distance on two sofas or in a chai?
If one is deaf on one ear it is mor polite to sit next to that person instead of having to scream across a table.
The expression side sit sounds really stupid.

@saab,
To each his own. Sitting next to a lover, rather than across from them, is far more affectionate. I sit across from friends. I sit next to people I am intimate with.

I've seen couples walking side by side. In the seedier parts of town they might even hold hands.


Are you trying to get this thread a NSFW rating?

@chai2,
Oh c'mon, chai. Even the bad jokes thread is NSFW.

And I managed to have one of my very own!

As this image clearly shows, side sitting is an old, honorable and socially acceptable activity:

Why, even Queenie herself was known to do it in her younger days:

Geez, what kind of example is Brady setting?

Next he'll be sending the wife flowers, or texting her sweet nothings!

I bet he even tells her he loves her, face-to-face!

What's this world coming to?

@InfraBlue,
what about corner sitting? I worry about all these proprieties at all times.

@InfraBlue,

I thought it was common knowledge - side sitting is when you go to a restuarant and instead of sitting across from one another in a booth you sit next to each other so that the other side remains empty-- in case of a couple -- like Tom sitting next to his wife instead of across.

This is the celebrity news equivalent to a really really slow news day. Confused

Another alternative is top sitting. It is fun to top sit, but it makes it difficult for your partner to eat.

So, why don't you guys weigh in.

My first love, a torrid affair, has contacted me on Facebook.
And after 35 years and her 2 divorces she's been nagging me to meet up.
I'm unencumbered and finally gave in.

We're meeting at a nearby resort and I'm taking her to dinner.

Side-sit?
Or across?

Have dinner first, old boy. Manners and all that.

@Lordyaswas,
Are you meeting - not driving together - get there early and allow her the option of deciding.

@Linkat,
It's not me, it's Pan who is having the rendezvous.

I was going to advise him to take contradictives, but forgot.
