    Default Good restaurant to take a first date

    Ok, well it's not really a first date, but a friend of mine just had her birthday and I said I'll take her out to dinner for her present. Now, I want this girl to be more than just a friend, so i want to impress her, but not go over the top. I'm looking for a nice semi-fancy restaurant that I can take her and spend under $100 for the both of us. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    If you're going through drive-thru, make her pay for the gas.

    oh yea, heres another idea. if u buy her a $100 dinner, she will think, "oh what a nice friend" not "me so horny" as u want.

    if u want her to think the latter, u should do something like go out for a decent $30 dinner, then tell her something to the effect of "i want us to be more than friends. i cant help it. u are too attractive. itll be better for both of us." then wait and see what happens. if she wants u, then ure good, if not, then u will not have to waste anymore time on her. whatever u do, dont be a pussy and think that she will get the hint from a nice dinner.

    Don't spend too much cash on her, take her to an average place and then see if she will be "more than friends" (read: have sex with you) with you, and then go from there.

    Don't waste your time & money on a "friend" - it would be better spent on a girl that you have a chance with.

    And if you decide to spend a lot of cash on her, and then she's with you, drop the bitch immediately; would you really want a girl that will only like you when you spend money on her???

    question: is this what men maybe boys really think, just sex sex sex, how about he likes the girl and he wants to date her and get to know her, (maybe there is sex LATER) but how about, liking her?????

    You're so right Jeff. You always speak the truth and some people can't handle it, but I almost always agree with what you have to say. I mean I know I said $100 max, but that's only cause I'm trying to explore all my options. I would rather spend around $30-$50 to see if she really does like me as you said. I mean I don't want to just get this girl into my bed, I really really like her, so I'm not trying to impress her with money, I just want to take her to a nice place. So what's a good place in your opinion in that price range that's not too cheesy or cheap looking?

    I'm not looking for a girl to just take home for the night. I'm not expecting anything that night at all except to find out if she likes me, so I mean yes that is all some guys think, but not all. The topic has been beaten to death on this forum I know, but there will always be the same questions and the same variety of answers.
    So thanks for the replies and I'll see what happens on Friday

    heres some cheaper alternatives

    Moxies $20 - 40 for both of you with drinks..
    Tony Romas ~$50 for both if you pig out and she doesn't (from experience )
    Earls $25 - 40 for both
    Red Lobster??

    Don't quote me on these prices, but these places are decent places to go and aren't extremely expensive. Like jeff said, dont' blow your wad on a girl if you don't know if she likes you yet. good luck!
