I was hanging out at my favorite place for cocktails and I struck up a conversation with a young guy. He was lamenting about his dating life and said he was growing tired of shelling out so much money to spend time with a woman. Of course, I asked him why does he spend money to spend time with women? Then he looked at me as if I had 3 heads and replied, “Because that is what dating is all about, two people entering into an agreement.” Umm, really.. how romantic??
I don’t if women require a cover charge to spend time with them,though. I mean, some women do but making a date feel like some kind of transaction isn’t the way to a solid relationship, in my opinion.
Honestly, I was impressed with the guy that asked me out to volunteer at a food bank. We didn’t spend any money and helped other people. It was literally a win-win date. Do you think there is a way to make dating feel less like some kind of business agreement?
Would you be open to the idea of a “penniless” date? Where would you go and what could you do?
