You didn't offer to pay.

Right here! If you don't even make a feeble attempt to pay for your share it screams gold-digger.

List is fairly accurate. But subby hit the nail on the head. In the immortal words of Mick Jagger, "If you can't rock me, somebody will."

Yeah, was confused they mentioned nothing in regards to the photos. I could get about 5 reasons out of that alone.

They also forgot to mention that when her clothes came off, she had so many tattoos that all I got to see was a poorly drawn comic book, instead of the naked woman I was looking foward to.

Also, nipple rings are only good if I have to tie you up to the hitching post while I'm in the saloon, or I need you to pull a wagon.

Yeah, that's clearly a matter of taste, but I agree. Nothing is more frustrating than a beautiful woman with crap plastered to the small of her back, breasts, or anywhere, really. Like that one chick in today's TSG mugshot roundup with the seriously distracting neck ink. Otherwise a beautiful woman.

Hey, some people enjoy putting on a diaper and being whipped, but that's not the majority.
Also, if you're planning to have kids, it's hard to nurse them when you have a lawn sprinkler for a tit.

20 years from now, that's how kids are going to be able to suss out the dinosaurs.
At least people in the 60s, 70s, and 80's, had the option putting on different clothes, and redoing their hair.

Some (though not all) of that crap is going to be embarassing as hell a few years from now, and that facial piercing you got tired of years ago, is just going to be a scar on your face.

If you're gonna give in to stupid trends, watch American Idol, or take drugs or something.
Drugs, you can give up.
The deep meaningful tat you had scribbled on you 20 years ago, not so much.

That's not to say all tattoos are ugly, but it seems like the people that have the most, always seem to find the
crappiest "artists".

I thought whomever asked who out first paid. Unless I get a creepy vibe off you, and you were the one who asked me out, then I insist on paying half. After the first date though it's pay your own pay or take turns paying.

I'm with you on this. I find it kind of annoying when the subject is brought up, really. If I asked you out, I'll pay. Pretty simple.

Not that I've dated in the last eight years or so.

Hearty agreement on the first point; nothing spoils a beautiful woman like a bad (even good) tattoo.

Gonna have to violently disagree on the second, though. Nipple piercing are teh sexay.

Maybe he meant a "Lewinsky Line". But that involves bringing a whole slew of other peckers into the mix.

Jesus, I misread that as Lebowski. I was gonna say, you want her to pee on your rug?

But it really tied the room rogether!
 
2009-09-12 07:25:42 AM
Big red flags for me are if she doesn't drink at all, doesn't eat meat (the food you perverts), and/or doesn't exercise.

Tats and piercings don't bother me as long as they're not excessive. Big ring piercings are kind of unattractive to me though, be it in the nose, ear or wherever.

Gwendolyn:

I agree with you about the "person who asks out, pays" principle, but often times its good to have the other person offer, even if both understand how the principle works, because it makes them sound (if even a little) considerate. And in your case, if you insist, I'll know you were creeped out by me.

6. Cell phone shenanigans.

That has got to be the biggest put off on a date. If we're having a good conversation and your phone rings and you start texting back without even acknowledging the interupption, it says that "You're not interesting enough for me to even focus on you for minute or you're not worth it for me to be considerate."

Say "excuse me", check the phone to see if it is an emergency, if it is (or even if it isn't and you still want to respond), say "I have to take/respond to this", if not put the phone away and say "Sorry about that, what were we talking about?"

Damn Man: Seriously? They a common type? Where did you find these creatures of such repression and denial?

Ultimately, it depends on what you're wanting. Some folks date for fun. Some folks date to try and find an eventual partner.

One of the described differences between extroverts and introverts is that extroverts "gain energy" through socialization. Introverts "expend energy" that way.

I'm not big on drama. Drama drains me. While a woman's a potential long-term fit, it's worth the effort (and money) of pursuing. Casual sex is overrated, in my mind. I'd rather hold out for the real thing.

We agree about the ideal situation, but since I won't let "the perfect be the enemy of the good", the standards of reality are more relaxed. As I am in a pleasant mood, I will help you out with this one:

You didn't offer to pay

I'm with the "one who asked pays" crowd. However,...

Met a girl on a dating site. Took a train into NYC to meet her. Took her out for dinner, + drinks afterwards. THEN she had the gall to complain about her last date asking her to go halfsies on the bill. This first date had cost me about $100 at that point, so I told her I agreed with him completely.

She shelled out for the drinks.

Frankly, after several flirty emails on a personals site, it's no longer possible to determine who asked whom out. It's Dutch.

/ If you don't like tats, why'd you ask out the girl with ink?
// Ditto visible piercings
/// Understand the nipple ring "hidden surprise" disappointment, but frankly I like freaks in the sack
//// Those fake nails belong on an aging hairdresser, not my back.

Insecurity. One's that yap about themselves and how great they are, how beautiful they are, or argue over little things they should just let go. Or demeaning. Telling you outright what you said was stupid or make fun of a faux pas. Not exactly the way to impress me.

Dude, I've been following this blathering long enough. On a first date, you'd better pay, no tests, no dramatic pause when the bill arrives, no untimely trip to the restroom, dude just pay.
 
2009-09-12 07:53:28 AM
I dunno, I normally figure out enough of that crap BEFORE the first date.
 
2009-09-12 07:53:49 AM
5. Talking about ex-boyfriends. Don't bring up your ex on a first date, especially to tell us how you're still excellent friends. We hear, "I'm still into this dude, but yeah, you're, uh, pretty OK."

I had to call it off with a beautiful Ukrainian girl after she kept mentioning her ex in Connecticut and how she was looking forward to seeing him when he went home to visit her parents.
 
2009-09-12 07:57:27 AM
I've had first dates where the woman was rude or snide or otherwise disagreeable. I thought, this is how she acts on a first date when the rest of the world puts their best foot forward? Or maybe this is her on her best behavior? Yikes. Either way, no second date. And the same women would gripe to their friends about it, like I was some sort of player-sleezebag because I didn't call back. Hey ladies, if you're gonna have a take-it-or-leave-it attitude, some guys are going to choose option B.
