Pizza, Burgers are the ‘Safest’ First Date Meals
Half of Americans believe a first date should always involve a meal. A study finds 40 percent look for someone who is passionate about cuisine as a potential partner.Meanwhile, 38 percent admit they’re put off by fussy eaters. 43% are so into food they say being a good cook is a turn-on when it comes to finding a partner. The research also reveals the most popular ways of involving food on a date include dining out (43%), having takeout (31%), and going to food festivals (31%). When it comes to the “safest” date night meals, Americans go with pizza (24%), burgers (21%), and salad (21%). On the other hand, the dishes people are most likely to avoid on a first date all seem to come from the ocean. Those include oysters (19%), mussels (18%), and sushi (17%). Desserts such as chocolate brownies (16%) and apple pies (15%) are generally “risk-free” in the eyes of daters. 41 percent have judged a date by the food they ordered when dining out and 45 percent form their opinions based on how a date eats. For those who chew loudly and eat messily, respondents say don’t expect a second date. Just as many Americans (41%) confess they would judge a date if they asked for a “doggy bag” to take home any leftovers. Meals also matter depending on the situation. For a marriage proposal, the top meal of choice is steak (27%). Ironically, this is also the most popular dish to have when breaking up with someone (23%).

Which Outdated "Dating Rule" Do You Think Society Needs To Let Go Of
Buzzfeed asks: "Which Outdated "Dating Rule" You Think Society Needs To Let Go Of?" Replies include: "That the man should always pay. I always insist on splitting the bill on a first date. This way, the guy I’m with doesn’t feel that I owe him anything. Too many guys think that if they take you on a date, you either must sleep with them or fool around or that you owe them a second date. With a split straight down the middle, it evens the dynamic. Especially with online dating where you really don’t know the person at all." sashab40859da03 "My grandmother was ahead of her time. She told us all that waiting to have sex was stupid. If someone was bad in bed, she didn’t want to waste her time on them. She had some fun times after she and my Grandpa divorced, and I heard way too many stories about her sex and dating life. She had a few boyfriends and a couple of friends with benefits for years. She always told me (and anyone who would listen) always be yourself, never settle, and have great sex." ImBatMom2 "The don't call until three days rule. Nowadays we live on our phone and now do a lot things naturally at a faster pace. So why can't we call or text each other as soon as we want." Massmusic “Give them a chance” - nobody should feel obligated to date anybody that they don’t want to. In some cases, maybe you’ll discover that they are actually really great for you, but it shouldn’t be standard. Never settle for less." ashtree "It's so lame that we're supposed to engage in ~fun, flirty, lighthearted conversations~ when we meet someone, and wait before getting into the more meaningful stuff. If you too are an optimistic nihilist, I'd like to know that before I care about your favorite color, sir." itsnotyouitsyou101 "That a lunch or coffee date (i.e. a day date) is actually a brush off. I like meeting people in the daytime—I think that’s safer and easier if you’re taking public transit. And it’s less expensive, which is a good thing for everyone." mich_with2elles "TALK. ABOUT. MONEY. It's seen as such a taboo subject, but it's one of the biggest causes of breakups. Bring it up early and be extremely honest about it. There's nothing wrong with your career ambitions being in a field that will likely result in very little income, for example, but make sure your partner knows that." frontrow333 " That men should ask women out and not the other way around. "I asked my now husband out first. People told me I shouldn't as I might put him off. Any man who is put off by a woman who knows what she wants and works towards it is not the man for me. "It hurts both men and women... ".. Also I think it may have implications for same sex relationships. If women are conditioned to not make the first move how does that affect women who date women?" noimpillagingeverybody "The “don’t talk about your ex rule.” If I’m going to get to know you I want to really get to know you. I want to know what mindset someone else left you in." anitar411db647a

The Supreme Court Rules AGAINST the NCAA
The Supreme Court ruled against the NCAA in a case involving the compensation of student athletes. The ruling blasts a hole in the NCAA's longstanding rule forbidding any kind of pay to athletes. Highlights: The justices ruled that schools should be allowed to give students what amount to financial perks, provided they are related to education. That could mean things such as musical instruments, tutoring, scientific equipment, postgrad scholarships, and study abroad. The NCAA has long barred schools from doling out such benefits because it says it wants to preserve student-athletes' amateur status. The NCAA argues that schools will keep sweetening offers to recruits with such benefits, setting off bidding wars for high school seniors. But the court said that stance violates anti-trust laws. An opinion written by Brett Kavanaugh signals that the court may be willing to knock down all restrictions on student pay in a future case. He wrote, tradition "cannot justify the NCAA’s decision to build a massive money-raising enterprise on the backs of student athletes who are not fairly compensated. And under ordinary principles of antitrust law, it is not evident why college sports should be any different. The NCAA is not above the law.”
