I could also make a dinner for that same amount, but neither falls within the context of inet first dates.

The idea of "dinner with wine on the beach" indicates to me "picnic with wine on the beach". I don't view sitting in a restaurant which may look out on a beach as being dinner on a beach.

cheapest I saw was 18 x2=36 + 28 for the wine = 56 + 11 for tip =$67 AND you are eating in a strip mall, not on the ocean.

What are you eating out of the dumpster?

So, I have to make or acquire a dinner for two and bring it to the beach? Keep it hot(or cold), spread a blanket and whatnot? What if its windy, want sand with your sandwich? Bugs? Want some OFF to go with your perfume? Too hot or too cold? Cant to a damn thing about that for you. Oh, and you have no choice in what you order, so any dietary restriction are moot.

Too much work for someone I have never met, and such a romantic idea fails in reality.
To say you want dinner and wine on the beach for a first date is crazy, unless she's willing to go thru all that work to make it happen.
Lets just meet for lunch and see if we even want to entertain dinner.

Granted, this doesn't include the wine, but we can get wine for less than 28 dollars a bottle here. And remember, fifty dollars was MY number, YOU said you couldn't have dinner for less than a 100.

LOL....seriously, I've never had a date ask if I wanted food/drink. Asking me to the restaurant implied that and I simply told the waitress what I wanted.
I have high expectations for dating and even I find this crazy.

Not all of us need a bottle of wine on a first date.
I've never paid for a first date, but I always do the hesitant check dance. The guys rarely let it sit long enough before snatching it.
I've had coffe dates and dinner dates. I order reasonably and if you do a standard chain restaurant it's quite doable.

But when the womans profile says they want dinner and wine on the beach, dont you think it should be taken at face value?

And would you really (I mean honestly) be impressed by a man who takes you to applebees for a 2 for 20 dinner? On a first date?

Not at the restaurant you cant! That 28 was based upon 4 glasses (two each)@$7 a glass, which is pretty average I think.
And your dodging the location, which even if you can find a chain restaurant on the beach, the prices will be inflated, just because the operating costs are higher.

And No, I cant have dinner for less than 100. I like to enjoy my dinner, I dont want Applebees or red lobster, I want seafood caught that day, or prime rib, not some BS piece of sirloin or a micro strip steak. Lifes too short to eat crap.

Where in the hell did this come from? This was not mentioned in the letter. Even if this was the case, you said yourself you can arrange that for less than 50 dollars.

What the hell would she care? She's getting a free meal. And most women are impressed with a man who can budget. But that doesn't include cheaping out with cheese and crackers on a first date...

Around here, a bottle costs less than ordering from glasses. Bottles are even pushed on you if order a glass of wine. It's cheaper. But like chuluzal, I don't feel a need to order wine on a first date.

You can order prime rib at any of those locations. And if you think sirloin or strip steak is crap, you're standards are just too high, man. Okay then, if I was such a fresh lobster only connoisseur, I'll understand why you can't eat for less than 100 dollars. Sorry, I didn't take into account how the "other half" lived...

Every Red Lobster I have walked into has a tank of live lobsters in the entry area. I assume someone orders them and they are not being kept just for show.

Right?

You made me google it. Apparently, if you order whole lobster at Red Lobster, you do get a cooked from alive Maine Lobster from their tanks.

If you order anything else that contains lobster, you get spiny lobster which is not fresh..

First off dummy, I was not taking a quote from the letter, but my own views on dating profiles I have read. Here is the quote, since you cant follow along...
... I laugh when women say they want dinner on the beach with wine for a first date, Ha! Yeah right.

Secondly, She cares because of her own admission that she has high standards...
Again, let me post the quote...


LOL....seriously, I've never had a date ask if I wanted food/drink. Asking me to the restaurant implied that and I simply told the waitress what I wanted.
I have high expectations for dating and even I find this crazy.

Read the last sentence.... High Expectations....That does not imply a date at chucky cheese or even chili's. But to you....Who knows!

If you want to debate me, at least do your homework, its pathetic having to point these things out to you time after time.

What's pathetic are your nonsensical arguments. You have high standards and refuse to spend less than 100 dollars on a meal. I'm trying to tell you there are cheaper alternatives, and then you argue that I'm unable to debate your expensive standards.

You can get a decent meal with wine for less than fifty dollars if you want to. That is a fact, Jack.

Of course you can, Boones Farm and KFC! But your not going to impress anyone, unless you skip using your coupons.
