When two people go out socially, or date, they are falling into a trap set up by the consumerist media. The market wants you to spend if you want to look good to your partner.
The way dating has been portrayed by the mainstream media as a way of seducing the women with gifts, it’s just disgusting. It’s almost like we aren’t people who crave company but consumer resources for big companies. Dating has almost become a capitalist tool.
To be frank, majority of women have not so secretly benefitted from this conventional dating scene. So what if it doesn’t work out with the guy? – at least the gifts are awesome! This is what most women gather from dates and you can’t blame them. Guys were stupid in the first place to actually fall into that trap.
This system needs to change and it is up to us to change it so that we can actually hope to meet new people in a decent way.
A peaceful place with light music and quick bites is ideal for two people to have a casual conversation where they get to know each other properly. A coffee shop or a record store that serves coffee is ideal.
Some people have a thing for women who are well educated and cultured. For such pairs a museum or an art gallery can be the best place to hang out and converse on topics of their own choice.
For a second date, it is a good idea to let your hair down and enjoy something very upbeat. Any local pub with a live gig or an open dance floor is the ideal setting. Now the girl also knows that you loke to have fun.
It’s important for the guys to show how knowledgeable they are regarding the cool places. It raises the guy’s coolness quotient high in the girl’s book.
