Default On an important first date what would you do?

Ok so you are on a first dinner date with a super hot chick. Keep in mind that you actually like this chick and she's not just a regular piece of ass. Things are going good and then some idiot comes up and tries to sell you a flower at your table. You know the ones I'm talking about. They will usually come up to you and say "A flower for the pretty lady?" or some shit like that.

Do you......

A. Be polite and buy her the flower and move on with your evening

B. Tell the seller that they have a lot of balls putting you on the spot like this because they know you don't want to look cheap. Tell them that you don't appreciate being guilted or manipulated into buying the flower and tell them to get the f**k outta here.

C. ?????

Personally I think it would be kinda gangster to choose B. I think any real woman would respect you for not being taken advantage of. It could backfire on you but I don't think getting played like a schmuck is attractive to the opposite sex. What say you?

Yes. I like where your head's at. If you don't buy the flower I think it is important to end the conversation with "fuggg outta here!" That could be the key to the whole thing.

You sound like someone easily susceptible to peer pressure, the exact kind of person these flower sellers are aiming for. You think too much what other people think about you. Of course everyone in the world cares what others think of them, but you care way too much.

I've stopped doing dinner dates. Too expensive most of the time, and cliche to an extent.

Go somewhere where there is a nice strip of restaurants/bars to choose from and get a cocktail and a light snack to eat. That way you won't have those flower douches come by as well. Plus you won't be sitting across from her this way, and one drink of alcohol relaxes everyone to the point of comfortable but not messy.

I'm rambling... Just a formula that I've found works better for me though.

Be yourself. Sounds cliché, but if you're pretending, she will notice.





And lunch > dinner for first date.

You don't know a goddamn thing about what kind of a person I am or what I care about. F**k you.

I've never had this happen before, but I'm glad I know what to do now. I think looking like a bitch is worse than looking cheap.

Remember, this is purely a hypothetical situation. I was just curious what people think of these assholes. I think they are d**ks. I'm not trying to get relationship advice. lol

Real talk right here. That "flower sh!t" is for the movies, and I've said this before. If a girl is interested in you, she's interested in YOU as a person, not what you can buy her. Most fine chicks have been handed enough flowers to start their own florist shop. What they really want is someone to relate to them, without kissing their ass.

A good meal, and a cocktail is the best way to break the ice. That way, if it doesn't work out, you've had a great meal, and are too buzzed to care whether she really liked you or not. If "not", then hey, on to the next...

Get the flower you cheap asshole, and give the guy a tip. Be flashy, pretend you're care free with money. Buy drinks out of your price range all night for her and yourself, get wasted, bone her.

NO decent woman would be interested in a guy that complains about a flower guy on the first date.

It doesn't matter what you decide to do really. If you do buy it and talk about how she's beautiful blabla, everythings cool.

If you don't get her the flower and explain later how you don't think those people should kinda force guys into buying 'useless' stuff, because they put you in an uncomfortable situation, everything should be cool as well.

If the girl is gonna dislike you over one of these two choices, she's not as great as you think she is.

I'd say something like "nah im good homey" then turn to her and say something like "If i buy you flowers imma buy an actual boquet"


I dont have to buy no damn flowers and i score brownie points
