I don't want to pick up a saved video game: I'm here to start new." —Orlando O."I always appreciate the offer to split the check, even though I never allow it.
If I meet a girl and get her number, the first time we go out shouldn't be a three-hour opera and dinner afterwards. If you guys have a great time, you're both left wanting more." —Greg G."If a girl and I end up hooking up quickly, it doesn't necessarily mean I've written her off. For example, 'Hey, I've got an extra ticket to this show tonight. ' Go out and do things I'd want to do, and then invite me. Be willing to embrace the things men love." —Sam M."I get frustrated when I feel like I'm constantly the one driving the conversation—it happens to me a lot and it feels a little unfair.
I like it best when someone can counter me with questions of their own." —Noah A."Don't hate on other girls.
I actually had one girl, while we were in the middle of a conversation, look over at another girl and say, 'Eww, look at that girl's dress.' The way she said it sounded so bitchy and I wasn't into it at all. The guy will almost always hold the door open, pay for dinner, etc., but it's still nice to hear a thank you and know that it's all appreciated. I've almost come to stop expecting them so it's especially nice when I hear them.
It shows me that she's genuinely interested in spending time with me as opposed to wanting to be wined and dined regardless of who she's with." —Nate N."If the guy doesn't say something and take the check off the table to pay, it's probably fair to assume that you're going Dutch.
There are different reasons that a guy might not pick up the tab (some that might not have anything to do with you), but if you're into him, avoid looking too disappointed.
