Walk in, grab a seat
you mean "wait to be seated"? Anywhere from 5-45 minutes unless you have a reservation.
, 5 mins to figure out what to order
If the initial hello is good and drinks are already in place, you'll be vibing, and forget about the menu for a while.
, 15 for the food to come,
Where? At McDonalds?
15 to eat and you can grab the bill while eating. 35 mins.
Not around these parts. 1 hour minimum at a decent restaurant. 35 minutes is fast food.
I go to dinner with chicks, friends, people from work, business associates, and this concept of dinner being long is untrue.
My dinners with friends/family/co-workers are usually around 2 hours.
the small difference between whether you're eating or having 1 drink and leaving is silly.
no it's not. Big difference between having to wait for food and cashing out your drink tab.
Lol, like really you'll do drinks over dinner to save 15 mins if it goes bad? And if youre bailing during drinks, you cant just bail during dinner?
No, you can't just bail during dinner unless you don't plan to pay.
That's just a silly reason. And how is it a waste of money? I thought you advocate splitting? If you don't like eating food and paying for your own meal, then don't do dinners. If I do a dinner and there's no chemistry and I paid my half, I'm not thinking darn I wasted money to eat. If I didn't want to eat I wont do dinner. This is a cheap, childish mentality...only a cheap kid would think that they wasted money on food that THEY ate. And that's not directed at you, bit its true.
Op's issue is not whether he went to dinner or a bar. He's clearly a weird creepy guy. I didn't go to dinner with him and I cant connect with whatever he is saying here, because he cant even communicate properly. And his posts are littered with being called a creep. Op, make freinds, get hobbies and fix your shit. Women aren't going to fix your issues. Sorry man youre not gonna go from the weird guy to the pussy slaying stud regardless of venue.
I had no idea the context of the OP's posts. I just went off the one in this thread.
