Where to Tie Your Dirndl Apron

Did you know that where you tie your bow on your apron can tell people about your relationship status? True story. According to tradition, a bow tied on the right means that you are taken... so in a serious relationship or married. Tied on the left means that you are single and ready to mingle babay! Tied in the center front means that you are a virgin. And tied in the center back means that you are waitressing or windowed. This one I don't really know about though, because sometimes that apron ties are just not long enough to tie in a nice bow in the front... so... ya...  

How serious do people take these rules? I'm not too sure. At Oktoberfest, I'm pretty sure that where you tie your bow is common knowledge, so if you're looking to find a date, don't tie your bow on the right. Here in the US, I'm not sure how many people know about the "rules of apron tying". So at the end of the day it's just about personal preference if you ask me. Sometimes the pattern on the apron would be covered up if you tie the bow on a certain side, so meh... it's really up to you I guess. What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic. Did you know about the bow location rules? Do you follow them? Let me know in the comments.

I “should” tie mine at the back, but never could tie anything behind me – unless I don’t use the belt loops each side of my dress….and cheat by tying with the apron behind me, then sliding it all round to my front ..!
