If you accept out of eagerness, he will feel you are too easy, and will move on to someone who makes him work harder.
Thou Shalt Honor Thy Dating Commitments When a man calls you, he will offer you dinner, but you have the right to reduce the date to drinks, lunch, brunch, coffee, etc.
Or if he really needs to be taught a lesson, schedule a Monday night dinner.
If he asks you out for the weekend on Thursday or later, the ladylike thing to do is to schedule no more than Sunday brunch with him.
This includes not chasing him by calling or emailing him excessively.
Remember, however, that for you to be a lady, he must be a gentleman.
It's important to remember that even if your date is not your dream guy, you are gathering information and experience, called Dating Data, that you will use on future dates with someone more to your liking.
Thou Shalt Not Drink Too Much on the First Date Although it may be very tempting, in order to relax, drinking more than two alcoholic beverages could cloud your judgment.
