To summarize: My date wanted to go to a local fair/festival and I agreed on it. After doing some research, I found that the festival doesn't allow people to carry anything that classifies as or could be used as a weapon for self defense. Not even a Swiss army knife. AND this festival is in a sketchy part of town, and people have had their cars broken into when literally only 1 row away from the security office.
I told my date that it was risky and I could only do so much to protect her (I am NOT a chauvinist); even less if I couldn't carry.
We are deciding on a different location for dating, but ladies, please let me know;
**Where do you draw the line between a guy doing the right / safe thing, and a guy doing the paranoid / selfish thing?**
By selfish, I mean that, since I would not be allowed to legally carry at the festival, I myself would not feel comfortable going. They have been known to use metal detectors and also frisk people if they want.

for me I would have to feel like the guy could keep me safe. Maybe I'm old-fashioned but that's one of the reasons why I have a guy, to keep me safe and love me :)
I wouldn't feel, well confident, if my guy told me he couldn't protect me?!
like you didn't have to tell her you couldn't protect her, you could have just suggested somewhere else.
I would kind of feel like my guy is a slight wimp.
Sorry I'm not trying to judge you, I'm just giving my opinion.
At the end of the day you thought of her safety before your ego, so maybe your a keeper lol :D1
