Non-negotiable: Men pay for first date

I was getting a little insight about men from a married couple. They shared a lot of interesting things but the one they both agreed on was that men should always, always, always pay the bill on the first date.

Apparently, I should not take a man seriously, if he does not feel happy and eager to pay for an evening date. I can be traditional, so I can appreciate the sentiment behind this idea.

Dating – in a lot of ways – sets the tone of the relationship. Maybe that is not the case for everyone, but generally people who seek a relationship, look at dating behaviors when seeking potential mates.

When a man allows a woman to pay her own way on a first date, does it prove anything about his character? Does it say something about what he thinks of her?

What happens when a woman decides to spring for the first meal? Would it be a sign she is rich, pushy, or overbearing?

Have you ever gone dutch on a first date? If so, was there a second date?

I haven’t been able to get into Reed Between the Lines. Let’s Stay Together, I like. The Game – straight foolishness – decent story lines – just too extreme in where they took it.

ITL – Yeah….I like it because I can actually answer some of the questions. I caught it in the middle so i’m not quite sure of all the particulars of the game.

I’ve got to check it out. I was reading last night when I got home, and once I start reading I tend to be pretty oblivious to other stuff.

OAN, Prep and Landing is on again tonight! :)

Leggs – Yeah that’s the name of it.

SC – I don’t know what happened on the Game this past season. They must’ve gotten new writers or something because it kind of became ri di cu lous. I heard that Kelly(white chick) is not coming back…not sure how true that is.

What is so horrible about the guy paying for the first date, or the second, or the third? After all, the man is the one who asks for the date. If the woman says yes, that’s no reason to expect her to pay. When I dated my first serious girlfriend (back in the 1970’s), it was unusual to go Dutch. She offered to once, and we did, but I would never have dreamed of asking her to do so. Nor would I have thought it unfair if we hadn’t.
