wg's dating tips for dudes

Hello, boys.

Here are some things you should do on a first date:
1. Show up on time.
2. Make a decision.
3. Turn off your phone.
4. Walk the girl to her car, even if she parked next to you.

Here are some things you should not do on a first date:
1. Say you are picky about people's looks, particularly if you are not exactly the twin brother of Brad Pitt.
2. Stare at your date's boobs.
3. Say you need to get home early, then make a phone call within ear shot saying, "Yeah, I'm on my way to meet you guys right now."
4. Ask, "Hey, can you chip in for this tab?"

Most of all, you should probably lose my number.

I'm writing this in Parker's baby book so that he'll be able to wink and treat a lady right. :)

Thanks for the your way of thinking...very helpful and I think quite realistic!


I'll disagree about the boobs part. It's both flattery and it lets you gals know we're paying attention.

And BTW, there are some rules that apply to women as well:

Be ready when we arrive.

Lose the gum you love to smack all night.

Don't order the cheapest or most expensive item (think about it).

Lose about 5 pounds of that gosh awful smelling makeup.

OK, maybe you would rather be somewhere else- but why make it so obvious.

Show a little cleavage. It keeps us interested, as we know you aren't gonna talk sports or cars.

Don't offer to help pay.

BP - Would you agree there is a difference between staring at boobs and glancing in their general direction? Because staring is just creepy and rude. It doesn't tell me you're interested, it tells me you don't have manners.

I'll definitely agree that their are rules for women, too! It looks like yours are similar to mine though - especially the one about showcasing your desire to be somewhere else and offering to pay!
