I have a question for the fine members of the board. I am 33 to give a reference point. I was always taught to walk on the side of the street, pull doors, pull out chairs etc. This is a dying art and I recognize this, but still continue the tradition. Now, I am not a frequent dater. I so happen to have a date next week and wanted to receive some opinions on flowers or any type of gift for that first date. I have been told by men and women that it is just an awkward thing to hang onto for the rest of the night, while others say it is a nice gesture. In all honesty, it is a nice "test" to see if the girl will appreciate it, and makes me mindful if future dates might be appropriate. Mind you this isnt the only thing that goes into consideration. So what is the consensus in bringing something for the ladies on the first date?
