But now, in the wake of our breakup, she was holding it against me:"You are an ignorant (learn how to use utensils) bastard."And just the other day, my friend Margaret quipped that I could use some help from Emily Post.
I couldn't argue, considering I didn't know who Emily Post was until I Googled her.
When I broke up with my last girlfriend I received a rather venomous email chastising me for all my personality flaws. One sentence I'll never forget had to do with her opinion about my manners.
When we were dating, this girlfriend used to think it was cute that I wrapped my whole hand around my fork (kinda like a cave man).
We can all agree that bad manners can be dealbreakers on first dates.
From initiating the first move to paying for the meal, women are certainly more in control than ever before. Read what we were taught in school about teens and dating.In the 1950's and early 1960's it was a lot different. Mark had decided to ask Sally to go with him to the ninth-grade dance which was to be held in the school gymnasium.Even the most feminist of women will undoubtedly appreciate this, no matter how hard she tries to deny it.Even though men still have to play the part of the ultimate gentleman, more and more pressure is now being placed on women to perform during the first date.
