Making New Friends When Dining

This does not happen to me all the time. I am starting this topic because we ended up making friends with a couple seated next to us in a fancy Italian restaurant in the North End. I went to the bathroom. When I came back my hubby and the other man [Mike] were chatting it up. We all returned to eating. When their check came, we started talking again....ended up exchanging numbers....we all ended up spending the last day of our vacation together.
To be a bit more clear, both my hubby and I are very gregarious people. That being said, I hope you don't get the impression that we are intruding into private conversations when we go to 5 star restaurants. I think of it this way; people give off more body language than verbal. My hubby and myself, Linda and Mike [the other couple] picked up from each other that we were open to conversation. In short, they're now coming to visit us next month in the city.
Has this happened to anyone else? Or has anyone found love this way? :}
