On April 12, 2015, at Provinos Italian Restaurant in Kennesaw, Georgia, eight women and eight men from various backgrounds and professions gathered together in a private event room over dinner, to participate in a social experiment conducted by the blogger Madam Koverage. The guests arrived between 5:30pm-6pm and indulged in appetizers and conversation to familiarize themselves with everyone at the table. Between 6pm and 6:15pm guests played a Meet & Greet game called ” Find Someone Who” to increase the interaction between the guests. At the end of the game, three people went home with a FREE Chick-Fil-A Breakfast gift card!
The table topics presented at ‘Dinner & Dialogue’ related to dating, relationships, & sex. The dialogue and opinions of each individual were quite interesting to hear. Below you can watch a recap video of the event, see pictures, and read bios of the guests who attended.
I would also love to hear the opinions of my readers of the questions discussed at the event. Since the video only covers a FEW, AND I MEAN A FEW questions, I will post all of them below, so feel free to leave a comment and answer one of the questions!

The question that I would like to respond to is: Is physical attractiveness or personality more important to you, or are they equally important?
My answer to that is both are equally as important. Physical attractiveness is what initially catches someones attention, but personality is what will keep that persons attention.
What are your thoughts of developing a friendship first with the person vs. rushing into it?
I think developing a friendship is very important. It allows you to really get to know a person in order to build that trust with them. It helps you to get a better sense of who they are as a person and provides a great foundation to a relationship when the friendship is one that’s healthy. When you rush into things you don’t really know who you’re committing to. Often times when things are rushed, you’re rushing because that attraction is physical. A friendship can lead to attraction on an intellectual level.
