And then they wonder why their relationships never last.

Spending extra moments prepping is half-@ssing it?

So the women who spend extra moments are also half-@ssing it?

You are a troll and provide absolutely no substance into this, scram.

What are you intentions? A free meal? That seems to be your focus. The meal is secondary so who pays for whom should be secondary.
Nah, I was referring to Raena and how she acted floored when you told her no after she had asked you. Not me.

Yes, we are speaking of initial meets/first dates. You are correct.

Not very many.

I think that when women feel they are entitled to have things bought for them, for any reason, is wrong. I think that when men feel they are entitled to sex because they paid for a date is wrong. Someone else mentioned that dating is not a scorecard. A woman should only dress up and be feminine for her date if that is what SHE feels like doing. Now, I'm not saying that rolling out of bed without brushing your teeth gives off the best impression, but to each their own.

I don't think it is right to believe you are owed something because you made some effort in some way. It goes both ways. But all you can do is know that THOSE people have to live with themselves every day, whereas they only bother you when you let them. As long as you are not one of those women that feel as if they are "owed" a nice dinner because they waxed some bits and put on some heels, you should be good to go

Jeep, I just figured that out. My bad for that.


I went back and read the post again and realized you were making reference to the OP's post.

I just roll out of bed. And I still get second dates. If they can't accept who I am on a daily basis, then they're not for me, are they?
