I don't even think going out for coffee counts as a date. It's lame. It's not romantic. And it's cheap. I hate when guys ask me out for coffee. If you're going to ask someone out, at least plan an actual date like dinner.
Most Helpful Guy
1) Don't expect men to buy you stuff in order to hang out with you. It'll push the good guys away.
2) We like coffee dates in case you turn out crazy and we want to escape your company.
3) Often "coffee" just mean's "let's drink or eat something quickly... something that only takes 20 minutes." I like dessert places because I can drink tea and eat cake while on a date.
Don't take it personally, we're just saving ourselves time and money, while trying to find out if you're as awesome as you look.
