AverageAmericanGuy: The more you eat the more you fart: AverageAmericanGuy: The more you eat the more you fart: From The Woods: Call me crazy, but I usually get to know the girl pretty well through talking/texting/whatever long before I take her out to dinner. I'm not about to spend money on some chick I don't even know. If I'm taking her to dinner, that means we're already good friends or lovers.

Most people spend a couple weeks texting/talking first in order to weed out the crazy ones.

By the time a first date happens, you should be reasonably sure you aren't wasting your time.

One of my most memorable first dates: she wanted a new mountain bike so i helped her pick it out. To thank me for taking my one day off that week to help her, she bought dinner. At the end of dinner she said "Well...this has been one of the best first dates i've ever had...what do you think?"

Me: date?

Her: uh...yes. date. What did u think?

Me: DATE?!

Her: *blank look*

Me: um...how about tomorrow we go to dinner...my treat...and this time i'll know ahead of time it's a date and i wont wear jeans and a Red Sox hat.

Her: deal.


Lasted 6 years and and an engagement...almost got married.

Dodged that bullet!

Uh no. She died actually. Car wreck.

/buzzkill i know...but sadly true.

That right there is super sad and I feel bad for posting my flippant remark.


Don't feel bad. You were still correct. The manner in which the bullet was dodged is just a technicality.

It's dating, make up your rules as you go.

fozziewazzi: Jesus McSordid: I'm an old fart, so I've always paid. But now that I'm a modern father of two girls, I encourage them to pay their share.  That way, there's less pressure on them to fark the guy. See how that works?

Good luck with that dad.  Allowing the guy to pay (esp. on a first date) has become ritual, and is her subtle hint that she's interested in becoming more than just friends.  They'll catch on quick when they insist on paying thier way on first dates and wonder why the 2nd dates aren't coming.


Assuming they date people interested in nothing other than immediate return one night stands, you are correct.  

I thought most of those types used plenty of fish or simply went to the bars late and took home drunk chicks these days?

Maybe I'm getting old.

Suede head: I've never been on a date since I was a teenager, I just screw whores and have my time and money for myself. A few months ago a friend set me up for a date with a woman he works with, very nice attractive woman who I'd met several times and she clearly liked me. But I turned it down when I thought of giving up my freedom and privacy. I know I'll die alone.


Dr. House, I presume?

What is dating?  Do I have to leave the basement for it?

Person who asked person out on date should pay.

No woman should suck stranger cock for $50.

I have been married 10 years and still pay when we go out to eat.
A real man will put food on the table and its worth paying out of your own pocket to do so.

/enjoy paying for two people on a date its a lot more expensive to eat out after you have a couple of teenagers.

I try to do the gentleman thing, even though I dress like a SoCal skater reject (dickies, skate shoes, band shirts). I open doors, walk on the traffic side of the sidewalk, pay for dates...

Occasionally I slip up. I'm not perfect. And occasionally I let a female pay for a date. It doesn't offend me, and I hope it lets them know that I am cool with it, without being a selfish tightwad user.

Just my $.02:
I also am a fan of whoever asked should be the one who pays, but that's usually at the point where I'm in a relationship or we're seeing each other regularly. I guess first "dates" for me were always drinks (coffee or alcohol) and I paid for my own that way there was no pressure on either of us and we weren't breaking the bank for a potentially unpleasant experience.

This is why men get paid more for the same work.

garandman1a: 2) If the woman offers to pay, or pay half, explain to her that by paying, you feel that it is the least you can do to pay her back for the time she is spending with you to go to dinner with you


The LEAST you can do for someone who just deigned to SPEND TIME with you? Hahahahahahahah. Yeah, dude. Why not just hand over your balls instead? If the only way you can get women to want to go somewhere with you is by bribing them, just skip ahead a few steps and call a hooker.
 
2013-08-12 05:28:27 PM  

garandman1a: but because as a woman you are superior in this instance.


Uh, how? Do you carry your pedestal with you at all times or only on dates?

Pumpernickel bread: I started dating a lawyer thinking, she has money, maybe she will pick up the occasional bill.....nope.  I think it goes back to the fact that men usually do the pursuing, and it looks desperate if a woman does.  And, she will tell you that she will gladly pool financial resources with you if you will just do one thing.


Oh, did you make less than she did? Probably should've discussed that up front.

Nobody wants to swallow your salty, snotty, tangy, disgusting jizz for a $50 dinner.

The smart woman might do it once she has 3 karats + on her finger, but women aren't that smart anymore.

Drink up ladies. And hey, feel obligated to do so after a $20 Applebee's date. Because you're worth it! LOL

bigbobowski: paying for your companions dinner, or opening a door etc. isn't buying someone, it's called manners, and class. i'm not saying pay for a shopping spree, or a new car. it shows respect for the company you keep.
also, i'm not talking about a business lunch.
/not that old, i'm told 49 is the new 29


I wasn't talking about a business lunch either. Maybe your age group is different. Mine does not seem to operate this way, which is often to my disappointment - I have lots of money (not bragging, just more than I need and enough to have whatever nice things I feel like), paying for stuff is easy and it would be nice if it was appreciated. Most often it is not, and not just when the lady isn't interested; the vast majority of my dates, even first dates, have taken place after we slept together. Also before we slept together again...

A real man doesn't farking care who's pocket it comes out of, it's all your money anyways. The biatch should do something to earn her keep, and taking care of the bill before she slobs your knob is the least she could do.

/HEY-YO!
