#43: A Man and a Woman Walk into a Bar

Today on the show, we’re finally tackling THE QUESTION we're asked the most frequently as a podcast about dating: "Who should pay for the drink on a first date?"

Join us for a Tour De Advice for straight daters, starting with Sarah Bennett, the co-author of ck Love, who suggest dating like a headhunter. Then we'll hear from a range of writers including James Michael Sama ("Here’s Why Men Should Still Pay For Dates"), Elizabeth King ("Why A Woman Should Definitely Pay On The First Date") and Tiffanie Drayton ("Why I Refuse To Pay For Dates").
