So I was just having a debate about someone going for a dinner with someone from the opposite sex, when they are in a relationship.

I thought it weren't right but some people disagreed saying it's okay for say, two girls to go out on a meal but once one of them is a boy its wrong which they didn't understand.

What do you think? Would you let your other half go to dinner with someone from the opposite sex?

I think it'd be a bit weird.

I'm okay with my girfriend going our for a meal with a guy. She's been asked before though and she's said no. I don't really have any friends so I'm unlikely to go out with another girl.

If your relationship is healthy, you have nothing to worry about.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

If it's purely platonic who cares. But if it was like "eh baby come get some dinna n maybe some fuk later" and she was like Im taken and then he's like "Well in that case, let's go as friends" then its definitely weird

I disagree with it so much. I feel going to dinner is like a special occasion that shouldn't be repeated with some bloke

i mean, i guess if the guy has dildos and handcuffs strapped to his belt and they're going to his place late at night nah

but lets face it, they're just going to go grab a subway or some kfc

depends who the person is - if i know them fairly well and understand that its simply dinner then i'd allow it but if i suspected something was goin on then definitely not
#13
Nothing inherently wrong with it, just depends on those involved. All 3 parties would have to be trusting of each other.
For me, there's only 1 guy I would trust in that situation, otherwise it would be a straight no if she asked.
#14
The person your with is going to do what want to do eventually...
if their intention is dinner and vibes with someone who isnt you, shit happens and there are other fish; if their intention is a client or an actual friend, then no reason to cause a fight and get insecure.
#15
Yeah I think it's a big big mistake to describe it as 'letting' or 'allowing it' to go ahead because she won't appreciate that at all, course she can do what she wants. That said, I'd find it a little odd as dinner is normally a romantic occasion unless it's business. The more formal/fancy restaurant, the weirder. KFC is fine haha.

No clue how u logic.

I'm in a relationship. I occasionally go to lunch with a female friend of mine. My girlfriend doesn't care. Why should she?
#24
i'd like to know the person that way i could have a better perspective on his intentions, but either way i wouldn't intervene. as was said before, if the relationship is healthy, there's nothing to worry about.
#25
I'd be terribly uncomfortable if my BF went to dinner with another girl bc every girl he's been friends with in the past is kind of a skank who tries to get free shit from boy. But he does what he wants so as long as he brings me back some food from the restaurant, I might not be so mad.

He might be glad if someone else takes me out to dinner. He'll have some peace and quiet and not have to spend money. lol

Do the people who are voting yes not think a one-to-one dinner is something couples do?

Is something lots of people do. Friends, business people, couples, everyone. The idea of anyone on here telling their girl they can't do things and them actually listening to them is mad

Wifed up is okay. Random friend who you haven't seen in ages and are meeting for the first time in years is weird.

I logic very well.

Lunch is usually less formal than dinner. If it's lunch at a really nice hotel or dinner at Subway then obviously not, but you know what I mean

Therefore, dinner is probably going to be more expensive. I don't really like splitting the bill if it's a one-on-one meal with a close friend because it feels like I'm paying more attention to $ than the person I'm with, so one of us pays for the whole thing and the other person pays next time, or for post-meal things. Basically I'm just being cheap lol

But meals with people isn't just about the people, I also want to eat nice food.

not really. i mean if you tell them you don't want the, to do something and give legitimate reasons for your concern and they value your opinion and concern, as most significant others would, and decide not to do aforementioned thing, i think that's just an exercise in healthy compromise. barking orders is disrespectful to your significant others autonomy, and an insistence to protect them is demeaning because you presume they have no ability to protect themselves, but mutual compromise is acceptable imo.

Because to me, when I go out to dinner with my girlfriend it's a special occasion. If she is out having dinner with other guys..it takes that special occassion feel away from it

Well shit you can narrow anything in life down to that.

Hmm.. you have a point here. I think I'd feel the same but I know I do because I know I'm a jealous person. But I think even if we had dinner with our friends, OUR dinner dates would still be special.

The real answer is that it's situational. If its an expensive romantic dinner, that's weird. But it would be weird to go to a romantic dinner with a friend anyways. The weirder thing is that every time you get dinner with your girlfriend is a special occasion. I mean, going to get wings is a special occasion? Splitting a pizza is special?

Yeah I think you right here. In my mind, I was thinking expensive romantic dinner every time.

You can't pretend like there isn't any subtext to a pair of opposite gender people cancelling all other evening plans to go have dinner together.

If there is, that subtext is between their relationship anyway. If I take a female friend out who I'm not attracted to at all, it doesn't suddenly get sexual because we're at a restaurant. In fact, the one time I've done that, it became an in-depth discussion of what we'd do as tyrant ruler of the world.

So honest question, how many of you guys are going for romantic dinners with your male friends?
