Best cuisine for dates?

I found out that a guy purposely selected a rib joint for our first date to test my girly quotient.  That’s right, if I couldn’t handle getting my fingers dirty on a date, then I wasn’t his kind of girl (I had to fight the urge to insert a dirty joke here!).  In fact, I suspect that a lot of guys want to see how women handle awkward situations when it comes to food.

Seriously, guys? What is that about?  Picking a restaurant that has messy foods make it hard for women to be all sexy.  Unless watching a woman rip meat off a buffalo wing gets you going, why would you pick a wing place for a romantic date? Am I missing something?

What are the best foods, cuisines and restaurants that would be ideal for a romantic date?  Is there some place or some food that can be messy and sexy at the same time?

Have you ever picked a really bad place to eat for a date?  Do men really pay attention to how a woman eats her food on a date? Ladies, do you judge a guy by the restaurant he picks for the two of you to dine?

Happy Friday!

Leggs – At some point, he’s going to realize that I’m not easy pickings anymore!!! I’m just going to keep ignoring him. I think part of it is that he doesn’t seem to be doing anything musically and before anything ever happened between us, we talked about me being his manager and him paying me to manage the band and book gigs. I wonder if he’s trying to get that foot back in. Who knows what he’s thinking. I don’t really care. As much as I’d love to get laid, I’m not gonna crack with him!!!

kimmie ~ I look at “I’m unhappy” the same I look at a married guy telling me his wife is an invalid or home recovering from cancer. I don’t believe you and do not care to find out if you’re telling the truth. The truth is your lowdown a$$ is a married!

Speaking of married dudes paying. I was over this woman’s house about to smash and she got a phone call. when she got off she told me I had to go. I was like you just going to leave me hanging like that. she said unless you willing to pay some rent and some bills you got to go, cause you aint messing my thing up. Needless to say, I left (LOL)

kimmie/Leggs – A married dude that comes in here tries to flirt with someone constantly. So finally it was my turn. So last week, he finally asks me why i’m so mean to him and I basically told him, i’m not into other women’s men especially MARRIED me. So go take your wife to lunch, go buy her a drink, sweet tea or whatever. He goes on with his story of how they’ve grown apart, how he works so much blah blah blah…just waiting for his youngest son to get out of school blah blah blah…miss me with that sob story you’ve probably recited a hunned times! :roll:

“I wonder” – two words that really bother me. Stop wondering and do something. Not saying you should Bluz, just folk who always wonder about this or wonder about that. Drives me crazy…I know someone who constantly says “I wonder if….. I wonder that, I wonder why…STFU!

I’m like Disco on that one, if dude introduced me as a cousin he would have gotten busted out right then and there! No going to the car crying!

Cosign…and going to the car to cry is a NO NO. I’d go to the car to leave but NOT cry….dude just played me and made us “cousins”?!..oh heyal nawl!!

Some side chicks embrace their role and have no desire to be number one.They just want the man to give gifts, pay bills, provide occasional diznic and get the hell on. In some ways, it’s empowering not demeaning.

True…everyone has to stay in his/her lane IF that’s the situation they CHOOSE to be in. One of my cousins has a situation like that. He married his first wife…cheated on her with his second wife,who he’s now divorced from as well. During BOTH marriages he was seeing a woman with whom he had two children…one child born during his first marriage and the other one born during his second one. TO TOP IT ALL OFF, we(the family) recently found out that this woman ATTENDED his second wedding with her cousin and was introduced to some family members at the time.

Fast forward to now, this same side piece and my cousin now live together in happy shackin-mony(nope NOT matrimony).

So he has children with both ex-wives and his woman AND some of the oldest children are around the same age :shock:

True story..

“I basically told him, i’m not into other women’s men especially MARRIED men. – Love it!

“So go take your wife to lunch, go buy her a drink, sweet tea or whatever.” – Something I definitely would say (lol).

“He goes on with his story of how they’ve grown apart, how he works so much blah blah blah…just waiting for his youngest son to get out of school blah blah blah…miss me with that sob story you’ve probably recited a hunned times.” – Exactly, to just come out with all that he’s looking at you with sincerity all the while wrangling his hands in his mind thinking “is this the one, is this one that’s gonna bite.” Silly rabbit, tricks are for those who don’t know any better!”

“willing to pay some rent and some bills you got to go……” -S/H- I have been there too. I done spent the night and she’s cooking breakfast the next morning when Sugar Daddy comes knocking on her door. I quickly moved my luggage from her room to the guest room, she let him in, we played the “we cousins” role, I shook his hand, finished eating and dipped. I called her later to see how it worked out and asked if we could vibe again that night. She said unless Imma pay the bills he pays, she has to spend some time with him. I told her I understood.

Hate to say it, but sometimes the old “now he see’s what he’s missing” line is just something we say to make ourselves feel better!

Truth is, unless he’s a stupid man, 9 times out of 10 if he really valued it, he would have kept it!

Once I started keeping it real with myself like that, I was much better off!

Why are uall worried about the lingo we(dudes) use?

When we smash we consider that u are giving it up!

Whether u were taken or not,it don’t matter.

Part of that derives from the fact that,Yes,u hold the power of whether it’s gon happen or it’s not. You make the call.

True,grown women have no problem even giving it up on first meet. More power to them!

Do guys judge based on when u give it up? Absolutely! Positively,Negatively,Correctly or Incorrectly!

But it’s All yours until dude compromises you!

But to be honest,if the chic seems phoine and she favors u with a smash on first meet,as a dude u can’t help pop ur collar somewhat! :lol:

Now ladies,grown or not,if u are in the business of giving it up early(imagine All the dudes u meet) how Valuable is ur cootie?

U be ur own judge for a minute!

“ladies – any of y’all ever have two guys sniffing around at the same time, trying to wait each other out?” – Hell yeah, quite comical. You can see them puffing out their chests, making comments to give off the sense of having authority of “something.” The one who tires first is the one who leaves.

disco – “…..B calls or shows up or whatever and guy A gets the boot?” The sad part is one’s rank has a direct correlation to their financial contributions. If dude B is paying water and cable and dude C got the mortgage and car note. Brother B got to get the hell on when C is coming thru.

Money is important but if his lingo is not there or the one with finance is downright lame,he gets used financially(buys dranks etc) and the broke dude with swag gets to escort her outa that place.
