What on earth? I must have saved myself a fortune over the last few years.
Crazy, isn't it?
I never trust a man who wants to buy me drinks and dinner. The intention is too obvious. If I am not interested then no amount of drinks, money, meals will take him anywhere. And in order for me to like him, I'll have to get to know him much better and that would require quite a few dates. That’s why I’d perfectly be willing to pay for my share of drinks and meals.
I’d much prefer it if a guy simply introduces himself to me first and then asks my name. And then starts up a good conversation – no flirting please – another obvious reason. If I am in a pub or something, then chances are, I’ll be with drinks anyway. I won’t be waiting around for someone to buy my drinks like a loser. In my model of the universe in which I live in, I find it totally ludicrous.
