It shows me that she's genuinely interested in spending time with me as opposed to wanting to be wined and dined regardless of who she's with." —Nate N."If the guy doesn't say something and take the check off the table to pay, it's probably fair to assume that you're going Dutch.There are different reasons that a guy might not pick up the tab (some that might not have anything to do with you), but if you're into him, avoid looking too disappointed.
I actually had one girl, while we were in the middle of a conversation, look over at another girl and say, 'Eww, look at that girl's dress.' The way she said it sounded so bitchy and I wasn't into it at all. The guy will almost always hold the door open, pay for dinner, etc., but it's still nice to hear a thank you and know that it's all appreciated. I've almost come to stop expecting them so it's especially nice when I hear them.
If it doesn't happen in the beginning, he'll think it'll never happen." —Tyler L."It can take the edge off to meet with a group of friends.
On the flip side though, it's a rough night when a girl goes on about herself at length without asking me anything about myself.
I like it best when someone can counter me with questions of their own." —Noah A."Don't hate on other girls.
We're usually pretty open to new ideas." —Adrian B."Please don't critique or be too harsh about someone's sexual performance the first time you hook up with him.
Things are new and you aren't familiar with what the other likes yet. Opt for something that gives you both an easy out, like lunch or a drink.You can tell a lot about someone by who they surround themselves with." —Corey O."I like when a girl gets physical with me, but not in the sexual sense. I love when she'll touch my arms or something like that as we're talking.It lets me know she's interested without being over the top and shows me we're both there for the same reason. If I meet a girl and get her number, the first time we go out shouldn't be a three-hour opera and dinner afterwards. If you guys have a great time, you're both left wanting more." —Greg G."If a girl and I end up hooking up quickly, it doesn't necessarily mean I've written her off. For example, 'Hey, I've got an extra ticket to this show tonight. ' Go out and do things I'd want to do, and then invite me. Be willing to embrace the things men love." —Sam M."I get frustrated when I feel like I'm constantly the one driving the conversation—it happens to me a lot and it feels a little unfair.All she needs to do to maintain my interest is…be awesome. It's hard to get the sense that I'm getting to know someone when I'm tasked with doing all the talking.When I started writing Ask a Guy, I had no idea that it would take off like it has.
