Dating-related collections lol...
Tell me something: Do guys even hold the doors open for the ladies anymore or is that a lost art of yesteryear?
Sorry but both my sons have been raised to PAY THE BILL.
You take a lady to dinner, YOU pay, even if it's just a friend.
In my little world chivalry is not dead! My sons open doors for ladies, elderly & disabled.
They take off their hat, they say "excuse me", please & thank you and yes, they pay the tab.
sheep to the slaughter, you see many girls being raised as "ladies"?
Nope, in fact I don't.. It's sad..
But I live by the motto: You can't justify your bad behavior with somebody else's bad behavior.
That's what I tell my boys when they start making excuses..
I don't have any daughters or I guarantee they would be ladies.
We gotta start somewhere- so I make the difference where I can..
The one who ordered the lobster and wine actually asked HIM out, not the other way around. I try to be as chivalrous as possible in my ventures, but there is a line that can be crossed... My last date was at a restaurant that went from $8 burgers to $30 steaks. We were both happy to get the burgers and drink tap water, and I gladly paid as I helped her put her jacket back on and made sure to open the building and car doors for her on the way out, as I did on the way in. (We broke up for other reasons.)
I'm reminded of a time when more upscale establishments would print 2 menus. A menu with prices for males, and a menu without prices for females.
