Aren't drinks expensive everywhere? In Vegas they are, unless you're gambling. And I figure you will look cheap if you don't offer to pay, moreso than suggesting a different activity. I think bars are a terrible place to try to get to know someone also, usually loud, dark, and smoky.

I don't want a woman who drinks much anyway, so I'm happy to give an advantage on them. I'm older than most of you guys though and looking for different things, so this doesn't come up much.

I have found that without any question the best overall quality women at least offer and more likely insist on paying their share.

Could turn out that first dates are mandatory coffee meets just to get on the same page.

Just a thought.
I think this is nuts. Don’t be creepy and read her body language and if you’re in doubt ask if something is ok. It’s all upside from there.


Edit to add: Yes, you need explicit permission to insert your penis inside of her. But that shouldn’t be new.

Im saying that throwing alcoholic beverages in the mix can make things unclear, or fuzzy on details

Say you ask, get the green light and afterwards someone has a change of heart, and a few years down the road you are said to be a sexual predator or rapist, taking advantage of drunk women.

Isn't the possibility of this make it more likely to have some sort of documentation, even to the point of some written contract?

Dunno man I don’t think it’s a concern at all.

Also, ChappelleLoveContract.mp4

Such concerns aren't new to the 2017-2018 era.

This. If a girl doesn't at least make a token offer, it's a red flag imo.

Well of course, if a woman insists on paying her share they will shoot up to "highest quality" status.. they don't cost nearly as much.. great value. If they plead to pay for your share as well, place them immediately at the top!

Re: Online dating thread

Tough to make blanket statements b/c it varies wildly based on how liberal your area is and how rich the women are.

In New Zealand and France, I probably didn't even pay 50% of the total costs of my first dates b/c most of those women insisted and some even wanted to treat me b/c I was a visitor in their country.

Midwest USA however, I probably picked up the 1st date tab 80-90% of the time.

Mexico will be a whole different ballgame. I'd imagine it will probably be me paying almost always on the first 2-3 dates, but luckily the country is so cheap, it won't make much difference.

I'd feel a bit used if after 3 dates of paying for her stuff that she hadn't made an effort to return the favor somehow. Like cooking up a delicious Mexican meal or taking me to get tacos or something more in line with her spending ability.

This is a foreign way of thinking to me. Are they good value? Ugh. Pass.

They need to at least pump fake or there’s no second date unless the date was just amazing.

I thought I remembered someone ITT doing a social experiment with a fake proctologist profile named AnalFister or something that turned out well. The point being that screen names didn't matter. If it's a name that can generate discussion and help get messages flowing that's a bonus but there are probably close to zero names that affect initial interest or response rate one way or another.

Re: Online dating thread

First time meeting an older businesswoman just passing through since I expanded my Tinder age range to any. She's 39; I'm 29. We meet in one hour and her flight leaves in 18 hours. Really pretty face for her age and Facebook pics stalked from her # show a thin body pretty recently.

Good luck, odds are she's freaky/nutty/ married if she's cutting it that close.

I am planning on avoiding the topics of family/relationships in case it's an "Up in the Air" situation.

She ain’t trying to talk. Don’t waste time with that. Have fun, make sure she does too, if that’s what you feel like doing.

Re: Online dating thread

Man...tonight was weird.

Went out to a local casino and was harassed by a large individual (twice!)

Had a couple fat Mexican girls hit me up and for some reason i didn't talk to them, i guess my gambling Jones overrode my urge to get a chubby threeway.

And the bartender was chatting me up, but it was so loud i couldn't understand half of what she was saying.

Im going to have to go back and talk to her, she literally had an ass you could set a drink on.

Hope Bobbo did better than me.

Re: Online dating thread

Just got back on OKC for the first time in over a year. Seems like a ton of changes, but I think they might be effective in reducing a lot of clutter.

Apparently, you have to like someone first then you can message. You can also hit pass on a profile. Doing either of those things will remove the person from your search which should make it easier to look new prospects to message.

Re: Online dating thread

dry spell was broken. redhead checked off sexual bucket list. She kinda freaked out and kicked me out prematurely. I don't think she was the younger peen slaying coug I expected and actually would have preferred more time to get to know me before hooking up. But we're still texting and will probably get together if ever in the same town again.

She claimed a few guys from her past met their wife right after they dated her. We'll see if it comes true.

Just be sure not to meet any new women until you go to a model convention or something.

Re: Online dating thread

On OKC, a girl had messaged me earlier today and I wasn't even notified. I only noticed it b/c I did a search and her profile had a blue border (indicating she liked me) so I clicked on her profile then the message showed up at the top of her profile?

Is this really how it works now? Girls won't notice any of the messages I send until they come across my profile through a search or something and open it?
