I had a date with a guy with promise—until he asked me out to lunch and accepted my courteous offer to pick up half of the $20 tab. This is no way to lure women into a relationship in my book. If one does the asking, one grabs the bill and protests. Or at least that’s how it usually works in my age bracket. I know that young people have different dating rules, but as long as I continue to hang with codgers, my expectations won’t change: Ante up, Dude, unless I’m the one who invited you to dine.
