- Traditional/old school thinking about dating x digital times
- The breakfast date vs. lunch vs. coffee dates vs. the “pressureful” dinner date
- Compartmentalization/strategies necessary before an actual/night time dinner date
- As women, how we guard not being sexually promiscuous (fast/quick to have sex) yet, we are way too fast to give a stranger access to our person when we need to utilize different pieces of technology—and daylight hours
- The movie Boomerang ($200 scene / LoL)
- When (and why) a woman should pay for the dinner date
- When (and why) the male should do the traditional thing: Pay for the dinner date in its entirety
BOTTOM LINE SUGGESTION: Save the night time/dinner to someone you are so comfortable with, well-synced and vibing with that you are practically okay with sleeping with them. Other than that, daytime breakfast, lunch or coffee date it or do “errand drive bys” (in order to assess whether or not you are feeling each other, or not). In addition to, in every city, so many many populated, open, non expensive daytime parks, bookstores, mall parking lots, pullover spots etc.), there is way too much technology out here to not have a dating strategy and especially considering all the time and preparation necessary to sit at the table with a complete stranger–trying to “vibe,” when that part should be good and out of the way (before a night time/dinner date).
In addition to self-esteem, self-confidence, self-efficacy, I am top of the line, VERY big on self-preservation (and find that, especially in the dating game, too many people aren’t very self-preserving). Especially for a woman, your actual presence should be a present already having been interested (in), desired, been opened, liked, EAGER to play with–then have the night time/dinner date.
It’s better for both parties.
