I am back to give you more insight about this Modern Man.
Where do we draw the line on the role of a man and the role of a women in the dating game? We can argue equality for all, but again, I am an old fashioned type of gal when it comes to dating. I believe that chivalry is alive and well... maybe rare but not yet extinct.
I went out on a first date with a guy (we will call him John). John paid for the date which consisted of a kite and some frozen yogurt. But during the date John made it clear that he expects a women to pick up the bill every now and then. Being new to this way of thinking about dating, I just went with it. We never had a second date though...lol
I went out with Tony. He paid for the first 2 dates (but I had to pick up the tip on the 2nd date). I paid for the next 2 dates. Now I have to say that I felt a little uncomfortable with paying, but again, I was thinking that is the way it is now. Also, I had to hear about him paying for the first 2 meals...how irritating.
I really can't stand to hear about what you chose to do for me (I didn't ask you to do; you chose to do it). Anyhoo... I digress...
They both explained that they normally date older women, and the women had no problem taking care of the bill and buying them things. That begs the question: Is it the women who created these "Modern" Men?
It is not all about the money...next time I'll talk about the chase.
