Is a Guy More Likely to Buy Dinner for a Pretty Girl?

This is one of those "no duh" studies, but we'll go ahead and tell you about it anyway. A recent study found that men are willing to pay for a date if she’s pretty, How About We reports. Like you didn't already know that ...

But it kind of works both ways. The more attractive a man is, the more women expect him to pay, the study from University of St. Andrews in Scotland found. AND, people who find themselves attractive think they DESERVE to be treated. The nerve!

Here's the good news: If he DOESN'T offer to pay, well, he might be "just not that into you." Which we kind of already figured, but it's a good rule of thumb. And if SHE doesn't expect you to pay, well, she might not think you're all that. Bottom line: Guys, if you like her, and if you think she likes you, you should probably open up the wallet ...

    Dinner is forum for conversation, the prelude to the kiss, and the kiss can lead to .. . . other pleasant diversions if the pretty girl likes the kiss.

    Wow, you're a real sweetheart, aren't you? Maybe the world would be better off if you did use a prostitute instead of a girl who might be looking for a decent relationship.
  • ~TheDreamer~ 2012/06/30 03:57:48

    Obviously, he's more likely to go on a date with a pretty girl...

    Duh. Men are very looks-oriented. But in MY not so humble opinion, the person who asks should always pay, regardless of looks or gender. So maybe guys should reconsider asking girls they don't think are that pretty if they aren't willing to pay for her dinner. If she asks, however, that is a different story.
  • tpops 2012/06/30 02:35:05

    Why would a guy invite a girl on date if he was not attracted to her. In my generation the man always paid and call it old age but I feel it should still be that way.

    This is seriously a ridiculous question. As a young female, it pisses me off a bit that beautiful women are always treated more nicely...
    But anyways, it's the way it is, no need to dwell on it. Plus, I'm a girl who likes Star Wars, that beats any beauty, or so I've been told! (j/k, j/k)

    Let me guess, it was a tax payer funded study. Just like the one that discovered alcohol makes the opposite sex more attractive.

    if there is a chance to get some hanky panky ... a guy will buy her a condo.

    The same way a girl is more likely to accept dinner from a pretty guy.

    Yes,they are because they wast their money for pretty ones. Although life is pretty simple because he buy or take her dinner,most fails,some works and he do more of what works. But depense on their relationship.

    Never say never. ;-)
  • RevBH Stef an... 2012/06/30 05:37:39
    oh, YES. This time I CAN. Perhaps this is the exception which proves the rule.

    And I know there's not enough booze in the world for that one......Not even as a mercy date, and I had my share of those.

    Those are the worst. The dreaded part in the evening when he drives you home, walks you to your door and waits for the kiss.
  • FELINE ... Stef an... 2012/06/30 11:54:25
    maybe he turns into a prince when you kiss him
  • RevBH FELINE ... 2012/07/01 07:16:15
    Nope. Extra Nope.

  • FELINE ... Chris D 2012/06/30 11:51:09
    I don't know there but here in Turkey , there are many , dating with old or ugly rich men .
  • RevBH FELINE ... 2012/07/12 23:21:57
    There's a name for that, and it's not "girlfriend."

    I think if you're not for sale, you're not for sale, period. The price doesn't matter.
  • METALheadMom 2012/06/30 00:23:38
    Yes (of course)
    DUH!!! Tell me, if the tables were turned, do you really think a girl would be more likely to buy dinner for a overweight balding redneck nerd? PEOPLE are SO superficial and judgmental it's sickening.
  • Cierra 2012/06/30 00:15:38
    Yes (of course)
    Most of the time, yes
  • Nabael 2012/06/30 00:04:13
    I agree with the first part: that attractiveness defines if someone is more willing to pay (or expect to be payed for). BUT, not always.

    I was dirt poor and just trying to get by when my love first met me, SHE was taking ME out and paying for our dates, which I felt bad about but she didn't mind. And a few years later, she is still mine, so I am thinking she was into me ;)
  • Dickens 2012/06/30 00:03:36

    ...that's why I make the uggos buy ME dinner...
