Inspired by profile pages on dating websites, these engraved wine glasses help couples to get to know one another face-to-face, in real-time. The glasses have questions engraved into them, prompting users to ask important questions to get to know one another while on a date. Like a cheat-sheet, the user can naturally glance down to bring a topic into conversation, ideally asking a new question with every sip. As the wine level drops, the questions become more intimate. The last being: “May I kiss you?”
