Is It OK for a Woman in a Relationship to Let a Man Buy Her a Drink? [POLL]
We were so worked up over this issue today! I say no. Stacy Lee says yes. What do you say?
Me: When a man offers to buy a woman a drink, it’s to flirt. The flirting is because he’s interested in exploring the possibility of a relationship — what kind of relationship differs. But if you’re in a committed relationship, you should not accept a gesture intended to begin the exploration of a relationship.
Stacy Lee: Flirting is just another way of being friendly. People buy drinks to be friendly — that’s it. If someone is buying a drink with another motive, that’s their faux pas. A woman can accept drinks in exchange for conversation and they’re obliged to nothing more.
