I have a friend who once complained when a man she met online planned a relatively inexpensive outing for their second date.
Instead of embracing a fun and creative day, she pouted the whole date and (surprise) wasn’t asked out on a third.
Dating is expensive, especially if he’s picking up the tab. Being mindful of that, and even suggesting fun but low cost date ideas yourself, is a good way to stand out from the entitled princess types and demonstrate you’ve got LTR partner potential.
Yes, dinners out at the best places in town are nice, but a gal who expects nothing less on every outing may find herself soon wondering why he never called again.
Oh and be sure to say, “Thank you.” A guy once told me it’s surprising how many women don’t, and when it happened, he would not call them back.
What do you think about the economics of dating? Please share in the comments!
