-We meet at a cafe in New York City’s Greenwich Village. I order a plain (inexpensive) tea. He orders a pricey cappuccino and a piece of pastry and never offers me a taste of the pastry. The bill comes and he demands that we split it 50/50. When I balk, he says, “I hate women who always expect a man to pick up the whole check and pay for them.”

Back when I was writing for music mags, I had a coffee date with a musician. We were talking about bands. He stopped me in the middle of a sentence and said to me, “I don’t like it when a woman knows more about music than I do.”

I was working for a clothing company a few years ago at the height of their popularity. While on a first date with this guy I thought was so cool, he told (not really asked) me to get him some clothes since he was sure I wouldn’t have a problem getting him free stuff.
