WHO PAYS?: Old School Etiquette vs. New School Rules

b1

There are some questions in life you have to ponder. I mean seriously, like sitting at a desk with hand on chin, while the jeopardy music plays in the background.

Sad to say, in this day and age the question of “who pays for the date”, is a question that can fall in either category. Well, depending on the person. A long time ago-back when they still listened to radio. Wait, no that’sRead More

Le sigh. Excuse me while I take a deep breath before I touch this topic. 2017 ended with an influx of allegations of assault touching nearly every part of American society.

Remember when you would meet someone within your network of friends/acquaintances and everyone would hang out together, no pressure? Just being yourself because there were no expectations. Well times have changed; we are now in a popcorn society. Everyone wants what they want now; but when asked, nobody seems to really know what it is they actually want or need. People are no longer building friendshipsRead More

He works as a cook at a restaurant, he would like to go out on a date.
