Jen Doll hits the nail on the head again. This really ticks me off…. I’m all for dating on 1,000 levels, but not to be a gold-digger. Get real, ladies. Sure, a free meal sometimes is nice (especially in good company), but your monthly budget shouldn’t be based on dates, and I would hope that it’s not assumed that your date needs to pay.

Jen Doll has problems with this.
