I've never taken While My Guitar Gentlt Weeps in that way though...

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Do you think that Rita and the man who is singing the song (the narrator) knew one another, at least casually, before the night/events in the song happened? Or did Rita just go out with some guy she just saw for the first time?

Did they go to Rita's house or the narrator's house? Are they Rita's sisters or the narrator's sisters? It is probably Rita's house and sisters, but the song doesn't explicitly state that.

I always thought it was attraction on first sight, possibly more on his side (tried to win her suggestions hesitation which would fit with the evening sister sitting), and they didn't know each other.

He (the lyricist) took her to her own house. If it had been the male singer's home it would have more than likely he wanted to get her on her own, not surrounded by two or three sisters - possibly her safety crutch for either protection from his desires or her own (not wanting to soil her reputation). Having ended up getting nowhere he asks for a sign (a wink in this case) to encourage his advances.

I know Rita is a traffic meter maid, but sometimes I think of the word meter with its music definition when I am listening to the song.
