Double your dating cd month
Jeremy Chung, a 31-year-old music teacher from Huntington Beach, Calif., expects gals to offer after a few dates. “‘Is she just in this because I'm paying — or is she really interested in me? To avoid a misunderstanding, why don’t singles just lay their paying preferences on the dinner table?
With all the different factions out there, it’s easy to understand why the topic is taboo.
Gals show their generosity in other ways: They’re way more likely to treat the guy they’ve been dating for a while to a home-cooked meal, 80 percent, than to a restaurant dinner, 50 percent, or a movie, also 50 percent. ’ If not to use the guy, why are some gals so reluctant to help pay the tab?
But some gals really, truly want to pay, like Kristina Hoock.For some, money isn’t exactly an appropriate dinner topic on the first few dates, anyway.About two-thirds of surveyed women said they try to keep their incomes a secret from their dates. In January, a gal offered on their second date to get a round of beers at the House of Blues in Anaheim, Calif.He later proved to be controlling and jealous — which triggered their eventual breakup.
“I feel uncomfortable if a guy pays for everything,” said the 24-year-old Hoock, now a business consultant for IBM.
But that’s tricky because gals are torn over tab sharing: Some are reluctant to pay while others are adamant about their ability to pay.
