Going dutch in dating
For example: four people share the ownership of a plane, boat, car or any other sharable high-end product.
This in order to minimize cost, sharing the same passion for that particular product and to have the maximum usage of this product.
Only difference in a pretty significant sample size is that the few women who are there to get free drinks, etc.
open up about how resentful they are about footing half the bill.
I recently had one woman show up an hour late to a date that was a few blocks away from her apt(after she tried to cancel when I was already waiting!!! Once she showed Up she never apologized, eventually disclosed to me that she was looking for a casual dating situationship.
After I asked if she wanted to split the bill, her entire demeanor changed and she told me told me she shouldn't have come down.
The interesting part is that these are generally the women I had the least chemistry with or gave the least effort.
It's become a rorsach test for who's really interested and who is just a serial dater along for the ride.
Ever since then, I split the bill and find no difference in how successful or unsuccessful my dates are.Another possible origin is double Dutch, the jump-rope variation in which partners simultaneously participate.A folk etymology is that the "Dutch" reference derives from Dutch Schultz, a New York gangster of the late 1920s to mid-1930s, who may have used dutching to profit from gambling on horseracing, though his nickname derives from Deutsch ('German'), in reference to his German-Jewish background.I'm officially going Dutch on EVERY first date.(and please don't give me that 'who asked who out' excuse. I'm not gonna be hurt financially by spending on a whim one night.
