Is there any demographic that statistically witnesses more awkward dates than waiters?! They bring first dates all of the necessary food and drinks, see the messiest break-ups in restaurant history, and witness hundreds upon hundreds of deeply uncomfortable silent dinners.
Servers are nothing short of experts on the body language of dates, which is why they have the best anecdotes of strangers bombing their chances at love. Obviously, love is not some opportunity that appears once only to quickly dissipate after a missed connection. However, continuously botching dates will statistically alienate your chances for companionship, which makes for better stories in the long run.
