Still single? There's a reason
Dating sucks for all parties involved. For the guys it's the pressure to wine and dine the girl. For the girl it's the pressure to look pretty and clean and act lady like. The pressure from your parents to get married and have kids and the pressure from you to find the right person.
Holidays are gone now but those nagging questions from your relatives and parents still linger. "When are you getting married? Who are you dating? Why are you still single?" Every family get together I was asked that question until this year. I don't think my relatives will ask that question again unless a wedding comes up for one of my cousins.
1. Cost of a 1st Date
- Know how much a first date cost for a guy? About $100 when all said is done, assuming the guy also doesn't have a job that requires him to work a Friday/Saturday night. Money is only one part of the equation. It's making sure you choose the right restaurant, right table, and most importantly time. No girl wants a guy to be late for a date especially the first one. If you're late to the first one that sets the tone of the relationship right off the bat. So don't be late and smell half decent and pay the bill.
I assume there will be some feminists saying "Oh why does the guy always take the bill?" And the correct response is "It's part of the guy code." Further down the road if you keep dating then maybe she can pay for a meal but not at restaurant that you both dressed up for. So guys if you want to really take care of things have the hostess take your credit card before you eat so there is no awkwardness with the bill.
2. Online Dating
- Our generation is known for an online addiction. We're connected to our phones and the internet, so why not just find someone through it? There's a 15% chance that you will in fact find your partner this way. There's apps to websites for every single person down to the farmer. You can go to sites like Christian Mingle if you're older and actually looking for a potential spouse. I've seen girls on Tinder use this approach but they have to know that Tinder wasn't made with the same in mind as Christian Mingle. Tinder is more along the lines of fun than anything else. We've created this monster ourselves though by creating profiles with our BEST pictures from the best angles that show no flaws or that we live this luxurious lifestyle where we work little but travel alot. We set up 2 lives for ourselves, one that the public perceive and one that we know is true.
