Hypothetically speaking...a guy initiates a date...a first date...and he forgets his wallet...says and does pay the woman back for the date...shouldn't he be forgiven?

I know, huh? That would be quite something to have men send women a bill for what she consumed and expect her to “pay back” just because they went out. As bad as women who feel a man owes them a walk down the aisle or some sort of sentimental attachment just because they opened their legs too quick. Like I said on page 26, men/women should think twice before opening that wallet or those legs too soon.

A guy took care of expenses, as it is accustomed, and he didn't get a 2nd date? Too bad.
A woman had sex with a guy too soon and guy didn't bother contacting her at all after it? Too bad.

It depends on how the date went and how he handled it. Some women would give him another chance, others would be put off by it. If they don't know each other very well a forgotten wallet, even if truly unintentional, isn't going to make the best of impressions.

Na, I'm just saying because I have forgotten my wallet a handful of times. Never on a first date. And it was quite embarrassing. Luckily, the person knew I'd pay them back and no hard feelings. But it was never a conscious decision to forget my wallet to see how she would react or to try to get out of a $50 check.

It does speak to how responsible a man is, if he would leave the house without ID, health insurance cards, and so on and end up driving without his license on him. First time it happens, and the first time the man looks like a moron who'd forget his head if it wasn't attached to his shoulders, it puts the fear in a person, like a tough lesson learned.

That's why adults don't do it. I'd bet the rent the scam includes "forgetting the wallet" in the glove box of the car.

Nice back-pedaling.
