It’s always frustrating when you’re on the dating scene and can’t quite figure out who you like and who likes you. I’ve heard a substantial amount of complaints from clients who are dating women that they’ve wined and dined but are uncertain as to whether or not the woman is interested in them.
Ladies, here’s a rule of thumb: Don’t accept gifts from anyone that you have no interest in exclusively dating. Imagine if you were really interested in a position at a company and they interviewed you 5 times- only to offer the position to someone they’ve been interested in since your 2nd interview. How would you feel? The way you’d feel about not being extended an offer at your ideal employer is how your date feels about you accepting their time and money with no real interest in forming a long-term relationship with them. If you realize you have no real interest in the person by the 3rd date, let them know and move on.
One more thing, don’t always assume your date is going to pay for every meal. I tell my female clients to bring money with them on every date and don’t order any food or drinks that they can’t afford and/or wouldn’t normally purchase. During this unstable economy, it’s dangerous and insensitive to indulge in expensive food and drinks simply because you’re not anticipating paying the bill.
