Ladies would you go out on a date with a man you are not attracted to nor have a romantic interest?


I had a discussion with a woman who said: "Dates are for fun, so I see nothing wrong with going out with someone you're not attracted to." Do you really believe (men) often ask women out on dates whom (they find unattractive) and have no romantic interest in? I'm not talking about a "platonic friendship" where two people are going to be "hanging out". I'm talking about guys who introduce themselves, ask for your phone number and dates afterwards. What do you think (his motive) was for asking (you) out and not some other woman? Just to have fun? or Does it matter to you why he asked you out?

    I couldn't agree more. I also had a horrible blind date & won't go on another. I had a sprained foot, was on crutches & he walked far ahead. Other men were opening doors for me & flirting with me! I never saw that ill mannered loser again

    "When someone asks me on a date it seems clear to me that it's for the purpose of exploring a romantic relationship."

    - Very true!

    It's not because a guy has money burning a hole in his pocket! :) He's (attracted to you) and wants to learn more.

    Express10, I believe some women (choose) to think this way in order to make it okay in their mind to fill up their calendar with something to do. Men don't usually invest time/money on women they find unattractive. All women (should) know this.

    "going out on a "date", hmmmmm, doesn't that mean if your going on a date you a interested. why call it a "date"?" Exactly!

    These women know full well the guy is romantically interested in them which is why he's spending his money and time.

    That's completely different from how men approach dating. They only ask out a women whom they're (already attracted) to or interested in. Thus they assume if she says "yes" it's mutual. Unfortunately some women say yes just to go out!:)

    Rejection early on hurts less than getting rejected later on.
