DEAR DAMONA (30:11)
Submit your questions on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and hear our answers live on the show! Here’s what our listeners asked about this week:
- Instagram Message from L – Hi Damona! I’ve been listening to your podcast for 3 years, even since I lived in Sweden and was dating an American boyfriend! Three years fast forward – moved to Bay Area, got married and divorced (😬), been focusing on work for the last year… While keeping an eye on the dating apps and listening to your podcast. I am 31, work as an engineer at Tesla, have all kinds of tomboyish hobbies, looking for someone very smart, probably an introvert, career-driven, kind and supportive. Someone local to the Bay area and tall (I am 5’9+) Another engineer is a plus but not a must.
- Instagram Message from Karly – Hi Damona! Who pays the bill when you’re on a date?? I know traditionally, “the man pays for everything” but that’s not realistic…so how do you start the convo about those expectations? I personally don’t mind splitting costs or even covering costs for dates, but I’ve never ever discussed that with anyone I’ve dated. For context, I recently met this guy on Hinge. He invited me on 3 dates (1st was free, 2nd was a car ride, 3rd was dinner which he covered the bill). Maybe a week later, I asked him if he wanted to get hang out again. When trying to iron out the plans, he shocked me with “And I’m sure I’ll be paying & letting you smoke my weed too huh…I’m sorry, but I’m not the one”. I was so shocked that he came at me like that!! I certainly didn’t give off the energy that I was just there for a free meal and weed. He NEVER asked me to split the cost on anything, never mentioned it; so how do we have these conversations about expectations regarding covering costs on dates? Thank you!!!
