“The worst thing a man can ever do is kiss me on the first date.”- Halle Berry
I was getting my nails painted when I received a text from my friend Bron asking me if I had been to the restaurant Saké at The Rocks. I sent her a text back saying yes the food is amazing; bring your wallet though what is the occasion? She replied I’m going on a first date there on Sunday, he chose the restaurant and booked it I have had a look on the menu and I hope he pays….
Saké Restaurant & Bar is a three hat restaurant, it has excellent reviews online and I would personally recommend it to anyone who likes Japanese food. Having said that it’s not cheap and you need to order a few dishes to get full especially if you’re not ordering sushi.
In the 21st Century I don’t believe the man should always get the bill, women have become so independent over the decades, have fought for equal rights and I know women who get paid more than their partners and that’s just a few reasons why I believe in going halves and I know Bron feels the same way. Having said that, on the first date I would like him to pay especially if he chose the place but when the bill arrives I’ll still reach for my wallet because I don’t think you can assume that the guy is willing to pay for it all and I also think it is the polite thing to do.
As Bron’s date has chosen and booked the restaurant I assume he intends on paying but it does put Bron in an awkward situation if she doesn’t want to spend that much money, is it too late to suggest to him to eat somewhere else? or can we just assume that his just going to pay?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
