So here’s a little something interesting my friends over at Match.com sent me yesterday.
So it seems as though men and women really have different ideas about how costs of dating should work.
What I find really interesting is the amount of guys who think women have an expectaction about how much they should spend during the first few weeks of dating. I know that I have had guy friends mention that kind of thing. Actually most of them seem to experience a little anxiety about that whole thing which kind of makes me feel a little sad.
I just can’t get behind the idea that a guy needs to spend x amount of money on you when you first start dating and I hate the idea that a guy would ask me on a date and then worry about it. For me that is just not what dating is about. And I kind of think that thing just spoils all the fun of dating. After all, money can’t buy love, right?
I do love though that it seems that a lot of women are totally cool with that whole coupon thing and that many of us don’t expect a fancy restaurant kind of date. I would say I definitely fall into both of those categories.
So what do you guys think? Does the cost of dating matter? How would you feel about a guy using a coupon??
