Host: How do I deal with a dead-end date?
Gloria MacDonald: When it comes to that first meeting, its important for you women to understand that again, in the mans mind this is just a meeting. So dont cross him off if he doesnt pay for the drinks or the coffee. In fact, you should offer to pay as a woman and if the man says, No, no I will get it, then graciously accept that and allow him to do that. But dont be offended; dont be upset if he doesnt offer to pay. If he offers to pay, wonderful, great. Men, if you are interested in the woman, you should do that because that will impress them but women, if he doesnt, dont cross him off the list as cheap. This is just a meeting. He doesnt know you at all. So this should, could very easily be shared fifty-fifty.
