I am in a Facebook group, matter of fact, it is a group all about match-making, with people serious about being commited. I have restricted my participation on Facebook because they can be consuming and a major distraction. But tonight I saw a post and I was like “dang, did I write this”, so I had to share. Christina OJ posed the question, but I literally could have written it because it actually happened to me exactly like it was written.
I decided to post it here. I am not going to share in the post what I did, but my old school sensibilities definitely were challenged . I mean, I consider myself pretty progressive as a woman, and I don’t necessarily ascribe the way with traditional gender roles. But dang, some things are hard to change, I mean there are some gender roles that should never change. Shoot, I’m an OG when it comes to dating, and I ain’t apologizing for it.
I want to hear from you, especially the men, so here goes!
Dating scenario question:
Man asks woman to movies, she accepts. He buys tickets. They meet at location.
He does not offer to buy concessions but she is hungry and didn’t have time to eat before the movie.
Response 1: Does she sweetly ask him to get her some popcorn and a drink?
Response 2: Does she go buy what she wants and ask him if he wants anything? If he says yes, does she pay for his food? (Even if it costs more than the movie ticket)
Response 3: Does she just go to the counter and order her stuff and eat it in front of him?
