You get to the restaurant 5 minutes early for a first date, and the person is nowhere in sight.

Do you:

1) Wait for them outside the restaurant?

2) Go inside and get a drink at the bar?

3) Go ahead and get a table, and wait for your date there?

According to readers who voted last week, the answer is overwhelmingly “at the bar.”


Nearly 50% of you voted that the bar is the best spot to wait it out before your date (maybe cause you can indulge in a pre-date drink?)
30% of you would rather just wait outside and then go in together.

Only 5.7% would go ahead and sit at the table, while 13% of you avoid the problem altogether by, well, always being late yourselves. Smart move, guys. Smart move.
