Depends on the situation -- if you're sharing as a favor (e.g., it's raining and you rightfully caught the cab first, but you're letting him ride along so he doesn't get soaked), then it's reasonable (if a tad mercenary) to expect him to pay the full fare to his destination if he gets out first. On the other hand, if it's an attractive woman, well, use your own judgement.
No reason it isn't perfectly workable, as long it's dealt with. If one party is nursing some unexpressed desire, yeah that might make things considerably more difficult, but still not impossible. Depends on a lot of factors: individual personalities, how long you've known each other, how close you are, whether one or both is already in a relationship, yadda-yadda...

Arnold's dodge is bizarre -- why wouldn't he say "I treat all women with respect and you should too"? Letters aren't sworn statements, are they?

Thanks. Turns out, for a college student with no experience, they're promising him some pretty nice coin; plus, if it works out, he may well do this the next few summers too, so in light of that, $150 for Red Wings seems pretty reasonable. But I will let them know there may be cheaper options. Thanks to all.
