You shouldn’t join a girl’s shopping expedition for a date. So why’s it okay to invite her along while YOU shop? The difference is the dynamic.
In my article on The “Help Run Some Errands” Date, Lawliet questions whether having a girl come help you on dates doesn’t set too much of a boyfriend frame.
As we’ve talked about before, you very much do not want to be the early boyfriend. If you act like her boyfriend before you sleep with her, you will almost never sleep with her. We’ve even talked about the misfortune that fell one poor man who decided it’d be a good idea to take a girlfriend of mine shopping and go around holding her bags for her.
So why, then, would I turn around and propose you take girls
shopping with you?
Have I flipped my gourd?
Gone stark mad?
No, don’t worry. If this distinction confuses you, it won’t for long.
That’s because in today’s article, we’re going to draw a line between what happens when you help her versus when she helps you.
