So I asked this female from HR to accompany me to dinner and a movie last week.

Her respose, "sure we can go together, like a friend's night out".

When I then told her I wasn't interested anymore and I'd probably find something else to do, she got all weird.

Now I'm told the gossip is I'm a total tool and no longer welcome to flirt with the chicks in the HR department.

I hate dating.

"Now I'm told the gossip is I'm a total tool and no longer welcome to flirt with the chicks in the HR department."

Cheer up. You only had one shot anyway. Sounds like classic Cheetah Theory. Dating from a group of women is similar to cheetahs hunting on the Serengeti. Big cats select their target and make their move, scattering the herd in the process. Same with dating. In the process of making your selection (“kill”), you establish yourself with the rest of the group (scattering it), thus ruining your chances with a different member. That's why the initial selection process is so important. One shot. Make it count.

This was your mistake.
You should have gone with her as just friends, pretended that's all you wanted. She'd either have been dissapointed and made a play for you, or she'd have been cool with it and not blown your chances with all the other HR chicks.

You fool.

What are you a chick? with all the game playing.

If I follow your advice I would have ended paying for dinner
and a movie for 2 and going home and spanking it.

My way I only pay for 1.

No,no. If she really just wanted to be friends she'd have made a dive for the check. Never let him pay unless you want him to think you'll (eventually) put out.

No. Being able to beat them at their own game does not make you a chick.

If you're just going as friends why would you pay for everything?

This is the 21st century, not the 18th. If you're going out with a chick and she says "this is just as friends" then you make her pay for half. At least. This way, even if it turns into something more, you still save money. Bonus.

It means don't date women you work with. After you are done banging them you still have to work with them.

Your first mistake was asking out a bird in HR. They have all the privileged info on everyone at work, so they think they are smarter than the rest. "Human resources", a true oxymoron.
Mistake #2 was not in accepting the just friends gambit. Then you could have turned the tables by going to some ordinary place to eat (fast food, or just plain) and then seeing a bad flick, or some exploitive non-chick one (not porno, that's over the top). If she had a sense of humor, maybe then she would treat you like a human being. If no humor, then you would have at least communicated that you could parry with them on an equal basis. Would have cost $20 ?

PS, when HR chicks aren't talking about everybody else, they're stabbing each other in the back.

1. All chicks think they're smarter than any guy

2. Going out with a chick "just as friends" was ok pre-marriage
(which was like 20 years ago). Now I have enough friends

3. How is going a cheap resturant and seeing a non-chick flick
turning the tables? I do that every first date.

She actually sound kind of nice. She cared enough about your feelings to find a way to tell you it was no-go in the romance department without rejecting you completely as a person.

Believe me, it's not very easy to shoot a guy down without ending up feeling like a total bitch.

When chicks say they want to be friends, that means you are free to keep taking them out, paying for dinners and movies and everything else, and they are free to never give you any sex.


It's a scam. I wish I had some "friends" like that too.

why be lovers on the first date? Why not see what you are getting into...after all the last time you rushed in did not work out....

How about taking your time? Of course if you take your time you cant call a woman a beach.....you'd have to be a nice guy.....literally....

I don't think so. The last female friend...let's see how it goes....date I had...I paid for lunch...she paid for dinner...and frankly dinner was a much better meal.

I had a better time when she paid.

I did not get laid...but I still would have happily gone out with her.

You did the right thing.

Of course, you shouldn't ask co-workers out if you're not willing to be gossiped about, and it goes without saying that you only get one target per department at a time. Ok, unless you're me and the HR chick you discreetly ask out says, "No, dumbass, not me...HER!" indicating her next-cube neighbor.

Anyhow, worst case, you've lost nothing but the esteem of some people whose opinions don't matter. More likely, even if they think you were being a jerk, on some sub-conscious level they'll respect you for sticking to your guns.

I meant women or girls.To me women sounds like they're older (30ies?), where girls sound younger (20ies). I do think that chicks is better than b*tches. I don't usually used either unless I am talking to a bunch of guys...even then it's usually "chicks".

I find it rude/disrespectful. I don't get all shrieky about it... I just couldn't ever be interested in a man that referred to women that way.

I usually will use the term "chick" at least once with any potential date, jsut to see her reaction and to weed out the ones who would be offended and <drama>emotionally devastated</drama> from hearing such an insensitvie term.

They will hear much worse hanging around me, so it's better to get that out of the way up front.

I do that with girls I'm just potentially going to hang out with. I mean, who wants to party with someone who has nothing better to do than complain about the word "chick"?

Well, probably some other uptight stick in the muds, but not me.

Now the term "Broads" is a demeaning word. It's never used in a
positive way.

"Chicks" on the otherhand is viewed by most men as a neutral term.

"Women" is too formal.

But that's my point. You wouldn't see/hear any reaction from me. If you only did it once, I'd probably overlook it. Using it with any regularity would simply close the door on the option of dating you. But the door closes quietly within my brain - no slamming involved.

1. I'm neither humorless nor lesbian.

2. Maybe it's a personal taste thing. Maybe it's a generational thing.

I didn't mean for it to become an issue on the board... I just mentioned it because sometimes people don't know what they are saying could be offensive. For those who don't agree or don't care, feel free to live your life. For those who care and didn't know... use the information however you want.

Again - I would never "chew someone out" for it. It is just something that I find in bad taste.

Only a total jackass would let a chick pay for a date.

But it wouldn't have been a date because she already said it's not a date. So I agree, if you two had gone out she should've expected to pay her own way.

You're not a boob man, huh?

Nope. I like legs.

And what's between them.

Now that's going a bit too far. I'm cute and that tends to grow on people.

<<Me too. Have done for years. Got chewed out for it by a humorless lesbian once, at which point I added the words "dame" and "skirt" to my vocabulary.
I just don't get what's offensive about it.

I didn't mean for it to become an issue on the board... I just mentioned it because sometimes people don't know what they are saying could be offensive. For those who don't agree or don't care, feel free to live your life. For those who care and didn't know... use the information however you want.
Again - I would never "chew someone out" for it. It is just something that I find in bad taste.

a friend of mine laid into me for using 'Lady' because she associated it with a cab driver yelling "Hey Lady get outa da way!"

my boss told me to do something 'Right Now' so i said 'Yes Mam' (typical military?) and i was told "AND DONT CALL ME MAM"
i asked her the next day how she would prefer to be adresed and she replied "Mrs". (mam is short for Madame, the lady in charge of the house of ill repute. Mrs recognizes the woman as married (untouchable) and head of the household)

cultural? associations? i guess. you can always insult someone somehow.

always formal to the cute ladies.
and no i dont know how to spell mam correctly

"DONT CALL ME MA'AM" i asked her the next day how she would prefer to be adresed and she replied "Mrs". (ma'am is short for Madame, the lady in charge of the house of ill repute. Mrs recognizes the woman as married (untouchable) and head of the household)

She's full of shyte. Ma'am, is short for Madame, yes; but Madame comes to us from the French where it is literally "my lady". Monsieur for the men, and Madame for the women; both words have the French prefix which in English means "my" ("mon" for a masculine noun and "ma" for a feminine noun); they're basically the same word, except for gender: "my sir" and "my lady". For the females, "dame" is mature, as opposed to mademoiselle, who is my jeune fille.

And yeah, there's also an American slang usage of madame as a lady running a bordello, a procuress. But that's not the main usage, or the mainstream usage, or even a common usage except in movies of the Old West.

Tell that cranky hag to stop to stop watching so many Westerns, and that she can find other reasons for being a prickly complaining beeyotch, without trying to pass her ignorant ass off as some kind of expert in etymology or philology.

Uh, actually, since she's your boss, maybe you better tell her something else.
