    Would you rather go on a date and have a table guaranteed at the restaurant of your choice or go on a date and possibly be disappointed because you either have to wait ages or go somewhere else?

    Simple answer really. Book it.

    I would just think it's was a sensible idea, you would look far worse if you turned up and asked if had booked and hadn't, no need to worry. Hope it goes well....

    Book the table. You're over thinking this.

    I am a guy and I wouldn't think that, I would think something along the lines of 'oh, we can sit down, isn't that nice. She's got some sense, she's a keeper, etc.'

    Probably look worse if you didn't book the table, if you just turn up and find out you have to wait 45 minutes for a table it'd be pretty silly of you.

    Yeah I couldn't agree more, if I was your date I'd be chuffed to bits that you'd been thoughtful enough to book a table at your favourite restaurant! That has all the makings of a perfect second date :-) x

    You tell him where you want to go, and tell him that he should book it. Simple.

    the real question is if you dont book a table and go to restaurant wouldn't you ask yourself
    "which seat can I take?"

    Good point. they should have.
    They also should remember they gotta have their bowls gotta have cereal as well or they will break up after the date.

    And no date is a proper date without a black dude hitting on girls young enough to be his children

    Even though I'm not a guy, I doubt that guys in general would care if you pre-booked. It's better to pre-book than to go to a place and either be turned away (which is embarrassing) or have to wait a long time before a table is free. I'm sure guys would think this as considerate and not over the top, because, why would they?!

    Plus if you're worried about it being busy, possibly loud and impersonal, then when you book ask for a table that isn't in the middle of the room, like book a table that's against a wall or a little bit away from the other tables so that it'll be more quiet and cosy .

    Also, if you go in and book rather than booking it over the phone then you might be able to pick which table you'd like to sit at on the night. I don't know if restaurants allow this but I don't see why they wouldn't.

    I don't see how booking a table is OTT? :lolwut: It'd be far more sensible, I hate getting to a restaurant place and having to wait ages for a table.
