Veritek, may I strongly suggest that the two of you sit at the bar? It’s so much easier to interact and do some touchy/flirty stuff than across a table. If you like him, be conscious of doing stuff like turning toward him, smiling, eye contact, and maybe touching his arm etc. Guys do pick up on body language.
Sitting at the bar with friends, on dates, or alone is the absolute best. You end up meeting so many other people. Remember when I made out with Elliot from ET? I met him at a bar/restaurant when my friend and I saddled up to the bar for dinner instead of getting a table. Just think of all the former child stars you could have made out with if every time you had seated yourself at the bar! 😉
