I don't know, I use objective because it seems to denote a decision without the subjective emotion. I don't put a lot of thought into that kind of thing, "why am I doing this" "what will anyone else think" "what could this money be spent on" ... Just as I don't question other people's choices in entertainment. Yes, it's more of an event IMO.

$200 entrées? My wife would kick my ass if I spent that much money on a date.

That's bad money management.

Why is it so difficult for some to just answer the OP's question? It's a yes or no answer.

He didn't ask opinions on how much he (or a man) should or should not spend on a dinner date. He didn't disclose his (or the man's) net worth. He gave a specific example and asked a specific question.

I assume an adult who asks another adult on a dinner date can afford to take their date to whatever restaurant they choose. It's not up to the female (in this example) to worry about if the guy can or should spend money on their evening. It's actually none of her business unless she's expecting or is expected to pay for part of the meal.

Some women will think the guy is expecting sex, other women won't. Some women will be super-impressed, others won't.

Most of us won't be super impressed....just about all couples eventually go to an expensive restaurant on ONE date....& for the first or second date, it's kinda common??!?

His question was if the woman would think a man who took her to such an expensive place was only after "intimacy."

Yes....& I answered that..........by saying that we wouldn't.....unless if he was going to stare at her or not make conversation like a normal date would............

Also....by it being "kinda common" for a date or two....I was answering it that way too.............

Thanks. It turned into another judge-fest. Maybe a poll would've been better?
