meat + dating.....EH!!!

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/09/fashion/09STEAK.html?_r=1&8dpc&oref=slogin

my roommate found this and was like, look! your favorite topic!!

here is a sample:

Red meat sent a message that she was “unpretentious and down to earth and unneurotic,” she said, “that I’m not obsessed with my weight even though I’m thin, and I don’t have any food issues.” She added, “In terms of the burgers, it said I’m a cheap date, low maintenance.”

i think it is funny how "eating meat" on a date shows "good things" about a woman's character. funny how compassion isn't something people look for.  :'(

Feisty Kittie!  :o

"I am woman hear me chew... MY VEGGIES and to show you I'm not "prissy" I'll clock you in the head if you say anything about it not a very nice person." That'd be my quote for the interview.

Haha!  I second that Ms. Hughes  :) Smack, the only prissy I see here is you! (said to the dude that can't handle the veggies)

I hate when it censors you @$$hole got censored to "not a very nice person"

Oh, f**k it.  Let's just have a veg*n orgy.  Far simpler.

Start a thread! See what kind of takers you've got... LOL

I think the guys are date are too busy worrying about impressing me to stress about my food order.  If you're laid back and are true to yourself, you should have no problems...if the other person isn't a jerk.

I guess maybe us vegans are a bit spoiled. I mean, we all get to go out and eat delicious ethnic food (yay Indian and Ethiopian food dates!) and the rest of America is stucking eating at boring steakhouses on their dates.

That's very sad, isn't it? I guess, to me, going to a steakhouse on a date sends the message, "I don't like interesting food!" and that's a deal breaker for me. :D

Restaurateurs and veterans of the dating scene say that for many women, meat is no longer murder. Instead, meat is strategy.

This annoyed me more than anything else in the article. You could replace the word 'meat' with almost anything, and it seems like people would mindlessly accept it because impressing a man is seen as so important for a woman.

Forget your morals. Forget your sense of adventure, your taste for ethnic food, your opinions, your integrity and your intelligence. You'll have a boyfriend, and that's all that matters.

UH... oh really?? So meat= relationship?

ha ha, capture!! (j/k)

well, it is all that matters. what planet do you live on?  ;D (just kidding)  i think "regular" men like "fake" women, or at least that seems to be the case from the media. why date someone (well, why date at all?) who is a real person with ideas and opinions when you can date someone who doesn't upset or offend you by being themselves...

“Everyone wants to be the girl who drinks the beer and eats the steak and looks like Kate Hudson,” Ms. Crosley, 28, said.

No thanks!  I like the person that looks back at me in the mirror and if that means I have to stay single.....who cares.

But it doesn't mean you'll have to stay single!
Who decided all these men like meat eaters?? The women who uses it as "strategy" is STILL SINGLE!  ???

Excellent point.

My guess is they didn't have any real articles to fill that space, so they put in this piece of trash.  It is common with daily publications I've heard.

I've never ordered a steak or a beer, never liked either, and I don't look like kate hudson & I have an awsome husband!!!

I have nothing relevant to add.  But I don't think Kate Hudson is that attractive.  Beer is better.

As a beeraholic that doesn't get drunk, I agree with all in that statement.

Yes, how dare we be ourselves. Shocking. That said, I really wouldn't know-  I mean, my boy is so far under the thumb that he asks me for veggie burgers when I offer to cook.
