Best Course for a First Date - Page 5

Call me cheap.... Call me frugal...  but I am beginning to think getting a cup of coffee/tea a much better way to start a first date then to goto a restaurant.  That way, if things aren't going smoothly, we can just end it at that.  However if things go good, then dinner can definitely come after.  Is this a wise course of action?
Restaurant but in dutch way

(Fabienne @ Feb. 23 2005,08:46) When I was single, I always preferred any avenue less obvious than that of the "date routine".  American women may feel differently, though.  I hear they expect a lot in general, such as having the man pay for the dinner.  That's a complete cultural warp for me.
The man paying for everything is a foreign concept in Europe?
Not just a silly guy.

I agree with topcatny's approach.  For a blind date, coffee is fine.  If you know the woman, presumably you have wanted to ask her out for some time, and it pays to put your best foot forward, which generally means dinner or something more time consuming than a drink.  Dinner can also have a signalling effect -- if she insists on splitting the check, you know she's not interested.  
I have NEVER paid anything during a date. A couple of times a girl obliged me to drink by ordering  and paying me a coke as i didn't want to take anything because of the prices ( i can NOT pay 4 euros for a coke I can have for 10 time less at home. Impossible. Even if i was very rich. I even do not want people to pay for me.) I rarely invite my girlfriend (she has her own money) so i will not pay for someone i do not know. A normal girl doesn't need you to pay.
