Recession Dating 101
- don’t ask to take her out. i mean this in every literal sense of the word, do NOT say “let me take you out.” not only does this imply that you will be taking care of all expenses of the night, you also need to pick her up, open doors, and bring her home at a decent hour. instead, ask to “hang out.” keep it light, keep it casual, and she wont hesitate to put 5 on it.

- be cost-conscoious, not cheap. when you say “dinner and a movie, “ it doesnt need to be at Gary Danko and then a 3-D showing on the IMAX. then again, it also doesnt mean burger king take out and a blockbuster VHS. but it COULD mean a homemade picnic during a free movie showing at Dolores Park. and tuna sandwichesm, a jug of instant coffee while snuggling to keep warm on a cool SF night all while watching sixteen candles sounds WAAAAAAAAYYY better than a whopper junior and onion rings on ur couch watching terminator. and it was probably cheaper too. aaaand u’d probably be having sex after (which is the goal of any date isnt it? dont lie.. forreal, dont lie)

- just cuz she pays, dont mean you dont have balls. look in ur pants, they’re still there. i promise. engrained in our minds is the silly notion that the man has to pay for everything. hence men frontin bout how ballin they are, and gold diggin women expecting the gadamn world when they dont deserve it. u aint gotta lie to kick it. if u can’t afford it, u can’t afford it. simple as that. and if we feelin u as much as u feelin us, then let us show some appreciation. let us take u to a raider game, or to ur favorite restaurant. women need to stop being so unappreciative anyways. lol. its all good in the hood.

- less is more. although we like the extravagance once in a while, we aint lyin when we say its the simple things that matter. dont buy 3 dozen roses when 1 single flower will suffice. no need to take me out to a steakhouse when i’m craving a $6 carl’s junior burger. dont sweat the small stuff and save the funds for important things, like, anniversaries and engagement rings. cuz TRUST me, we might not mind the difference between a $6 and a $16 burger, but we will mind the differece between a cubic zirconia and a real diamond.
and remember!! pek pek should not have a price tag, or an expiration date!
