First few dates at someone's housePage 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
I dated a gentleman who asked me to have dinner at his home. He made dinner and we had wine. Then we cuddled on the couch for a movie. It was a lovely date and I learned a lot more about him.

He was intelligent, articulate, well mannered, well cultured and a definite gentleman.

I dated him for 'bout 2 1/2 years.

It was our 2nd date.

Depending on the comfort level, chemistry and connection that you have with your date. There are NO RULES in dating....that's in MY BOOK. If you're doing what is best for you and you're comfortable with it, I see nothing wrong with your decisions.

So you're inferring I'm not a *real man*?

I'm kind of stuck on your use of the phrase "real man"... What does that mean? Should I be pixelated? Perhaps less of a man? Maybe a Chia Pet?

I'm not going to even qualify your lackluster preface of using the word "respects", either.


Thank you, You see so many say that a 'real' this or that only does what they think you should. When someone starts off that a 'real' only does this, my first thought is they're a fake 'whatever'.
I'm not some kid living in a dorm, when I invite someone into my Home, I think they're special.

You're quite welcome. I don't feel as if someone has to qualify for the rest of us. if you have an opinion, let be known it is to represent YOUR opinion. Don't lump us all under your subscription of what you *think* should be "the way".

Preening, how odd.

No way RichenLos Angeles. I jump out of airplanes, swim with the sharks and eels, surf off the CA coast, but even I would not engage in such "at risk" behavior. Not in today's world.

Also, since cheap seems to be part of this thread I'ld like to add my take on this. As a woman in today's world, when I meet someone, no matter how much we have communicated, we meet for a drink first (coffee, tea...)and I always pay for mine, if thats a bust, then thats it. If it goes nicely and we decide to have lunch or dinner after that, if that doesn't go well, I pay for mine. If it does go well, sometimes I pick up the tab or sometimes I let him... I was married for over 28 years so haven't been dating long but find myself uncomfortable with the idea that the man should pay simply because he is a man and I am a woman.

Msg 79 - Isn't that what John Denver used to say? And Steve Irwin also?
Come to think of it, whatever happened to them?
Oh yeah, I remember now.
They're dead, and I'm not!!
And, for the record, I have a 1st date coming up this weekend, and yes, we're going to my place.
