About This Quiz

Fancy restaurants are a real treat. They aim to make diners feel special and please their palate with exquisite cuisine. But do you feel like you know the proper way to act at a fancy restaurant? There's way more silverware than you're probably used to, words on the menu you don't understand and a formality to almost everything. But that's all part of the experience! These places can also be a great location for a date. You get to learn a lot about someone during an elongated meal. You can see how they treat wait staff, if they chew with their mouth open and if they order incorrectly. But your date can also tell those same exact things about you.

Wouldn't you want to know how dateable someone is before spending hundreds of dollars on a meal? Probably. We can't help you with the people you're going to date, but we can help figure out how dateable you are with this quiz. Being able to conduct yourself at a fancy restaurant but also being kind and humble are traits that anyone would be lucky to have. But if you're more comfortable at a fast food place, you might feel super awkward and not know how to act at a fancy restaurant. That doesn't mean you're undateable, but it could hurt your overall score. Ready to find out? Take the quiz now!
