Although younger women may not realize this, today's dating scene is a lot riskier than the good 'ol days. Back then, you had to be home by midnight. Back then, there were no on-line dating websites, where often creepers lurk. Back then, women never asked men out on a date.
Should a woman ask a guy out on a date? Let's watch the video to see what is suggested...
Beavis and Butthead were the two who came into mind when I first watched this video. However, I think the two cartoon characters made very good points. Coffee is where a guy and a woman may take a "test drive" before "purchasing" a "relationship"...
You are safer in a coffee shop than in, say, a club or a bar.
If you are an independent woman, you can pay for your own coffee.
If you end up not liking him, you can tell him that you cannot afford a refill and leave.
It's coffee, not a five-star meal. You are not going into debt over a man.
