Where do you go on first dates?

You guys really kill me with getting upset at things said from women who would never put up with cheapness, but yet no one gets in a tizzy with terms like "narcissists", "pampered princesses", "prostitutes", "gold diggers", etc., that are just as equally degrading if not moreso.

The hypocrisy is amazing. *smh*
Expecting to be pampered on first dates is entitlement indictive of narcissism.

I'd hope shes including her expectations in any prior communication and profile.

I can tell you right now that most men with some measure of intelligence are going to frown upon your lower classed rhetoric. There certainly is someone for everyone and you're lucky for that.
Yeah, well, we're going to have to disagree on that.

Are you not an un/underemployed temp? C'mon, get real. You will date your own just like the vast majority on this planet.

Maybe you should think about getting a job so you can feed yourself and not have to rely on random guys.

Show him the posts in this thread by some of the women and ask him how he would like to be spoken of in that regard. I can't imagine any man appreciating cr*p talk.

I KNOW how he would respond to that! If he thought I even had thoughts like that, he still would have paid the bill, but as he was running for the door...

On the matter of paying for the first date I'm 90% sure what he will answer... but with some of these guys posts I'm curious.

I've been thinking about this... I'm not even sure how someone could pamper me on a first date. I think that if I had a first date with someone and he pulled out all the stops and dropped a lot of money on me - I wouldn't trust him. That's what you do when you know someone, you know what they like, and you want to make them feel special. I wouldn't feel special if someone did all that on a first date - I'd think that he probably did this sort of thing a lot and it wasn't really for me in particular. To really pamper someone - you have to know them a bit.

I don't know. Every one of these threads are the same to me. They're just worded differently and my posts are slightly different.

I pay for the date, whether I asked or she asked, no questions asked.

I'm of the camp that the man pays for the first few dates (or whomever asks).

It may be archaic, but to me it shows he is genuinely interested. I like a guy to woo me... so shoot me. But when I like a guy, I like to take care of him in return.

But I don't go out with guys I'm not interested in and will have spoken to them quite a bit before going out with them.

I'm not entitled to anything, beside the decision on whether I like the guy.

I've never had the issue come up.
