    I was raised to believe you didn't put your elbows on the table, ever, but you ignored it when other people did it.

    +1, Last time I was on a date I made sure my elbows stayed off the table. The date had hers on the table. She didn't know what I was talking about when I brought it up.

    Could it be a body language thing ? Like crossed legs and such, as to sorta shut off one's self against the others at the table like a barrier ? Kind of like slouching gives one a sorta sense of self concentration...

    I'm guessing that date didn't go so well.
