In The Dating Arena
Let The Man Pay – don’t get it twisted, a man who asked you out should pay for the first date. You offering may seem like a nice gesture but it should just be a gesture. If you are fully intending on paying for your share or the whole thing, you should know that you’re communicating to him that you’re not worth the effort.
Don’t Get Drunk – not only is it unsafe to get inebriated in the company of non-family and friends, but it’s stupid. Need we say more?
Don’t Recommed A Restaurant That’s Too Expensive – yeah, don’t be so inconsiderate as to practically yell out to your date that you’re just using him as a meal ticket. He worked hard for his money so even if he asks for a suggestion for your first date, select somewhere practical.
Know The Difference Between Cute and Provocative – I think this point is clear.
Late at night, do not walk down a quiet, unlit street by yourself. This is an especially a important point to note for those who rely on public transportation. It’s better to invest in a cab when walking home alone than to risk your safety.
Don’t let random people you don’t know too well all up in your house. I once had someone I met one time ask to stay with me for a week while she was visiting town. On top of that, she asked to bring along a friend. Needless to say, these were essentially two strangers that I was unwilling to co-habitate with for that period of time. It’s important to know who you let into your home as they will be intimate with all your personal and financial information.
