Funny thing is I can remember my one and only blind date. It was a cousin of a friend of mine. She said we were very similar in likes and things we like to do so I figured what the hell ... it is a good friend I would doubt she would fix me up with a “ loser”. Worst case just go out and have a nice dinner.
So I walk in ... first impression was not my type. At the time I was an avid fitness person worked out at least 4 times a week.. he did not look like he worked out ever. But I figure we’ll likely he is a nice guy and we might just have some pleasant conversation.
We have a drink and then go out to dinner... as you mention in Boston it is not going to be under 100. So in talking I mention in passing a champagne I like... forget how it was brought up so he proceeds to order it... not cheap at all. Later he talks about how if we were serious he could take care of me that I would never worry about money.
That kind of ended it for me. I wasn’t rich but I was more than capable of caring for myself ... so you see not everyone wants someone to spend 100s of dollars on them ... most ... granted I know those that would.... rather have someone they generally care about overall ... that was all I expected financially was someone that could financially care for themselves not care for me and that I generally liked.
