I think my biggest problem is the part before the actual date--how to meet men and secure an actual date. I'm horrible at flirting, and I never know how to strike up a conversation with a man I find attractive.So. Many. People. are that way. My girls and I sometimes make a game of pointing out the terrible and condescending things said about males of all ages. It is terribly insulting.
There has been several comments in the thread saying that they don't know how to date. I don't pretend to be an expert, not having been on a first date since the late nineties, but I always thought that it should work a lot like hanging out with your friends or new acquaintances. You tell funny stories about your life, try to find common experiences, and do something that everyone there finds enjoyable. Is that not the way you should do it? I would be completely lost once touching of any kind started, I think, but I could probably get through an entire first date.
I might do the old fashioned thing (opening doors, paying, etc) but I would expect a distinct lack of the condescending attitude mentioned above. More than one sentence starting with "men are..." followed by an insult would probably mean there wouldn't be a second date.
