Am I A Dating Snob?

Over the past two weeks I have had at least three strange occurrences that have made me think about things I refuse to do when it comes to dating. These three seemingly normal guys that I had just recently met, all suggested that they bring food to my apartment and two of them actually thought I would cook it! I was appalled. Even if, as one might venture to speculate, these dudes were trying to save money, this is in my opinion, just bad taste. And it is evidence that the guy either does not know how or simply refuses to ask a woman out on a proper date. Either way, I'm done. I mean really, whatever happened to courtship? I may be a modern city girl but some things never change. Like going out on a date in a public place getting to know someone you've just met.

While we're on the topic, here are some other dating rules I adhere to:

I don't go out on dates in Maryland, Virginia, or any other surrounding suburb. Come on, I live in DC! That would be like living in Manhattan and going out to eat in Queens.

I don't eat at chain restaurants. Once again, I live in DC where independent fine dining establishments are abundant.

I was once at the mall with a guy and he actually suggested that we eat at the food court! I haven't done that since I was 13.

That's just me.

You are, no one wants a girl that can not cook. Unless you are going to play disco queen until you get old lonely and decrepit, you may want to learn to appreciate simple pleasures such as at home meal with someone that you might have interest. Atmosphere is what you make it. A simple intimate meal with a friend can be wonderful. No matter who cooks.

Well, Anonymous from Dec. 26, I do like a nice intimate meal at home but only when the time is right. If we just met, I require a real date.
