"Do you know the way to the library?"

Apparently, there was a mass-kissing event recently in St. Petersburg (Russia).

Singles were told to ask coded questions when trying to find a willing partner such as "Do you know the way to the library?" meaning "I would like to meet you on a more intimate basis today, with a view to possibly building a serious relationship in the future.
If the person answered, "The library at 3:00 in the morning?" it meant, "Leave me alone, you are not my type." But if the answer was "Let me show you the way," then the response signalled a more positive reaction.
