18 Waiters And Waitresses Reveal The Dead Giveaways They're Serving A First Date

Waiters and waitresses have that outside-in perspective when it comes to you entering their domain, to take a chance at meeting someone for your first date. Those sporadic conversations you have with your date, consisting of information you'd already know if the other person was a consistent part of your life, are a giveaway. But at the same time, things aren't always as they appear. Maybe you're reading this as someone who's in a loving relationship, and realizing you might look like you're on a first date with your partner, every time you guys go out!

    Text - blackbird1273S One time I had a couple who were talking about what they had been doing the previous summer, indicating that they didn't know each other until recently. They ordered a bottle of 100$ red wine, and when I came back with the bottle the guy had started telling a gross story about how he was so hungover on vacation that his friends had to carry him inside the airport, where he had puked multiple times on various people/things etc. Before she even finished her first glass of win

    Text - peachyallie S -8h staying way beyond being done with their meal and drinks, usually because they don't want to try to figure out if they're meant to be going home together or not.

    Text - ofmenandmelons 6h When they come in and ask for tables separately then sit across the restaurant from each other for ten minutes before realizing the other there. (It was a blind date.)

    Text - Beeronastring 9h The biggest sign is when they order something the other doesn't expect them to get. "I'll have a Guinness" "Oh you like Guinness?"

    Text - Never_Not_Act 7h I'm not a waiter anymore, but one time I was at a place and the waiter came over when my girlfriend went the toilet. He said how he thought things were going well, and asked if this was our first or second date. We had literally been together over 5 years at that point haha So yeah, you guys arent always right!

    Text - imnotaloneyouare 7h That giddy little laugh at jokes that aren't funny. The look of new love. The awkward trying to get close but shyness overpowers and maintains distance. Also had a few women straight up tell me, so I'd help get them out of it. One woman paid me $50 to spill a drink on her, so she'd have to leave. Lol.

    Text - Alwin_ 6h Often arriving alone, looking around for "someone", being a little nervous. But the dead give-away is the conversation; it's always about mundane stuff that people would know if they were friends, colleagues or had been on a few dates before; childhood stuff like schools and towns you lived in, vacations which were cool, first date topics. Not ordering boose whenever the person who ordered first doesnt order boose is a good one to. If you go on a date and you want a glass of win

    Text - BerciKoSs 2 5h once waited an obvious first date where the guy was very shy and nervous. The girl that was with him was absolutely stunning. He kept his hands under the table and fumbled them around a lot. Whenever i came to the table they visibly loosend up so i talked to them for a minute and maybe told a joke or something because they seemed to enjoy it. I hope my boy got laid that night because i tried my best.

    Text - Amonette2012 5h They look a teeny bit relieved ever time you disturb them until things change. Then, if it's going well. you may as well have disappeared. If it's going badly you're either surrogate friend, fall-out shelter or worst enemy. That part is actually more fun

    Text - krammaii S 4h When he leaves before the food he ordered is made. I brought it out and she asked for the bill because he left. Brutal experience. She had to pay for his drinks and food. She didn't even want to packed his dinner up to eat later. This was not a cheap restaurant but the tables were close together so it must have been mortifying. I gave her the employee discount.

    Text - fatherofswans 6h Pay attention to body language. At first they probably mirroring each other. A couple who is comfortable together and have been together will sit however they want. A first date will usually sit up, like at attention. If it's going well, they might lean in towards each other. If it's not, they will likely put their hands in their lap. If it's bad, look for arms crossed, or drinks thrown.
