Quick post today on something I do all the time but haven't ever written about (don't quote me on that).
The scenario: You go out with a girl and there is no way for you to smoothly sit on the same side as her. Maybe there's a booth, or a table and the only normal way to sit would be across from each other which not only has been psychologically proven to create more contentious situations but also keeps you from being able to touch.
So what do you do?
Easy, you sit down have a drink, order, watch etc... Then about 10-15 minutes in you go to the bathroom and come back to sit on the girls side. It really is that simple. Sometimes if I'm feeling really game-y I'll say I want to taste her drink etc... But it's not necessary, you can just switch sides without saying anything.
Hope that helps,
