When he fails to flirt back, don’t immediately assume he is not interested.
Paying for dates was generally considered a masculine behavior.Century the English marked the word “Dutch” as anything they did not like or considered unwholesome.To name a few that survived to this day; “Dutch courage” (over indulging in alcohol to gain foolish confidence), “Dutch sale or Dutch Bargain” (a sale made at an unfairly low price after the goods were offered at a high price or a one-sided bargain), “Double Dutch” ( incomprehensible nonsense), “Dutch Alps”( small breasts) and my all time favourite and more in line with this article “The Dutch treat” ( to pay one’s own way or going 50/50 on a bill with someone ,be it your date or girlfriend.) I personally experienced the wonders of the “Dutch treat” on a date, on the evening of 31 Are most Dutch men unromantic? Take note that the following article is based on my personal experiences and talking to people.Over the last couple of weeks, I have been asking my friends (both men and women) who paid and who should pay for first dates.Almost everyone said men in their experience paid for first dates, although most of my women friends added that they reached for the wallet and offered to chip in.
A Dutch guy I met at a barber shop once had this to say on the subject of a Dutch Treat and dating, “ If the date is going well I do not mind paying the entire bill. If it is not going well, I will make sure she pays half. I will not spend my money on a bad date.” What immediately came to my mind was that this man was a cheapskate and clearly lacks a romantic bone in him.
