Dating traditional girls
, now that I know her for a couple of years, is one of my closest female friends.
She’s fun, beautiful, intelligent…the whole package. He met her on this Chinese dating site, but that’s not of interest now.
Women these days are looking for a “traditional guy” – one who will plan every date, open every door, and pick up every tab.
In short, these women want to be courted like it’s 1939.
But some women today want to stretch out that first date standard, and insist the guys pay for everything … Patricia, who lives in Dupont, equates how much money a guy spends to how much he really likes her.
“If he takes me to a nice restaurant, orders a good bottle of wine, and doesn’t even think of asking me to help out, I know that he is genuinely interested,” she says.
"Always waiting for the guy to initiate contact is annoying to most men," says Harold, 35.
"At some point you need to let him know you're interested by reaching out.
Not all women in this country look like the hot Mexican weather women you love so much.
" Perhaps, it's time to re-teach dating etiquette in the hopes that a few young guys and girls can reject the ambiguity of current dating trends in favor of a straightforward and respectful approach – one that takes place in real life and not just on the Internet. (Of course, this was back when girls had to actually call the “house phone" – a word I have had to teach my sons).
Girls, make the guy call you, not the other way around. If he doesn't have the guts to dial seven numbers and say, “hello," then he's not worth dating. Guys need to call it a “date" and make their intentions known.
Recently I’ve had an influx of new clients complaining to me about the lack of good prospects in the nation’s capitol.
Of course, there’s nothing new about women complaining about men. What’s interesting to me is that instead of the gripes running the gamut, (he’s not tall enough, not smart enough, not funny enough) the complaints I’ve been hearing more recently all share one common theme.
Fellas, it's time to man up and actually use the word “date." Make your intentions clear from the beginning.
