    I'll meet for a drink or tea or something or find something interesting to do and usually it doesn't cost all that much.
    I've never thought of this, usually taking a girl out for dinner is like my easy go-to. Now you've raised the bar, you asshole, I'm going to actually have to do work.

    Good plan. Plus people tend to be more open and honest when they are not face to face. Its more comfortable.

    It is always funny to hear how women like the ones you speak of would get so offended if you suggested that after spending money lavishing them with gifts and the finer things, that they owe you sex. It's the same logic applied. I did all this for YOU, now you owe me something in return.
    FWIW, I don't believe someone should "owe" you sex. It just always entertains me when someone tries to use a particular line of reasoning to manipulate you, and they are so indignant when you serve it right back to them. The irony is delicious.

    And if they come back to your place after drinks late at night, just strip naked and when they ask "what are you doing"; just reply "well what did you think was going to happen" saves a lot of discussion and gets down to business quickly.

    True. But that only works for women who are pretty to begin with.

    Personally, I often find the women who use the least make-up the most attractive. Also, pretty is not the same as attractive in my book. One can be one without the other, and vice versa.

    Looks don't really matter that much anyway. Charm, karisma and attitude is the key.

    Plus, if you're sitting next to each other, you can read body language better and its more condusive to flirting.

    Pretty and sexy can be 2 totally different animals. You either have both or you don't. My husband may not be the best looking guy but he got me with his sense of humor.

    It was mine at one point as well, it just didn't work. You'll also avoid serial daters that just want you to buy them dinner anyway. I look for somewhere quiet enough that we can talk but still out in public which can be hard to find.
