Great 1st date Sunday night with a woman. I kept my oversharing in check and felt very much in control of the conversation and evening. Healthy make out at the end of the night and tentative plans for Friday. So last night she texts me "Soooo I want to be honest about something blah blah I found our splitting of the bill a bit tacky. I know it's 21st century but I appreciate a romantic courtship. Do what you want with that info."
There wasn't anything really tacky about the bill split, we both had 2-3 drinks and we split an entree at the bar. Also, the bill came and I put out my card and she offered to split and I said sure. Ie, nothing really strange about the bill split like me forcing it on her or even a discussion at the time.
Just some background on the date, I gave her some shit for being mean but in a fun way. So for instance, she'd say something superficial and I'd tell her that's her mean line for the next hour and we'd laugh about it.
If there's a sticky on shit tests I didn't find it searching. I'm sure this has come up a million times before and hopefully there's a great response.
Because I want to improve, here's what I'm thinking in response:
[let me get out in front on a redstar response] : Just give me one more chance!
Ok serious response : "Usually women buy me drinks and food so I really never know what to do in that situation either. "
Or how about picking on her superficiality a bit more with "Wow I'm impressed, it's usually date #3 before women come out about wanting to be lavished with money by rich guys. It's kinda a turnoff for me this early."
Let me just say this, she's smart and a professional so I'm not sure she's going to enjoy the fun and sarcasm via text.
