Re: Who should pay on dates?
Dug was joking about giving women too much power. That is what I understood by the wink, anyway.
But I have to say, a man's paying, particularly when you know it is just part of his character, with no expectations, can be a real aphrodisiac, at least to some of us. Definitely shows confidence.
One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
