We decided to let a few men weigh in on the best and worst moves they’ve encountered via meet-cute. So if you’ve found certain approaches or techniques that work well for you, then by all means, stick to those best practices.Well, I can’t tell you how many times my friends and I have had a date text at the exact moment said-date was supposed to start, saying that he was “Heading there now” from somewhere that was nowhere nearby.I’m not sure when “Let’s meet at PM” became “I’ll call an Uber at .” Even better than on time? maybe don’t suggest a steakhouse) My dating profile makes it pretty clear I’m pro-lady: I went to an all-women’s college and my listed interests include “feminism.” Which is why it’s shocking to me that not one, but two dates have made derisive comments about women’s rights to me, one going so far as to explain to me “the problem with feminists,” and then laid out (among other things) why equal pay “shouldn’t be such a big deal” to women, and how, as a man in finance, he’s actually discriminated against more than the women are, because there are so many of them.* Use your date’s name in a sentence every so often.I’d rather hear that you stood in line at midnight with a bunch of twelve year-olds for the final on Netflix or how you went through a “swing dancing” phase in college.
