It’s Tuesday afternoon. You have no plans tonight (except maybe a spin class you’re dreading anyway). The phone rings and it’s the guy you just started dating: He was just given tickets to a play you really want to see. But it starts in three hours! Do you really want him to know you had no plans? Won’t it seem desperate to accept such a last-minute offer? “The idea that a woman shouldn’t accept a last-minute date offer is as outdated as the one that she shouldn’t wear pants,” says Della Casa. “While you shouldn’t be so available that you get tossed into the ‘sure-thing standby’ category, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with accepting a same-day invitation from someone you are interested in seeing.”

Ignore your first instincts and, don't worry, jumping into bed on the first date won't lead to any unforeseen consequences? Seriously? The rest of the advice seemed basic enough (don't be a doormat, don't be a snob, etc.) but this ruins it for me.

some of this stuff is so stupid.  like to not know already i mean

some of it i don't agree with like..  the cost should be what you think about most

it looks like you're planning too much if a guy see's you nailing some specific number for cost

maybe it shows maturity in a way but u don't want the person to be sacrificing the meal.  you want the person to be having the best meal they can possibly have for all the right reasons
