Hi all,I've run into a dilemma with styling my hair. I've basically defaulted, time and time again, to the "Bieber" hair style because of my fine hair.I don't mean "fine" as a vain word to describe…Continue

"I dont think having a pocket watch is such a good idea for a date. And it will look out of place no matter what attire I wear. I think it might work for the older crowd though. Not for me."

"Pocket watches are somewhat like fedoras: people who make use of them are desperately trying to be interesting but usually end up highlighting that they are not."

"Glad I asked for your input; you guys might've saved me from looking like a prude. Thanks for putting the advice in a gentle way, it clearly sounded better in my head than it would have looked if it was executed :)"

"Never, never bring a cell phone to the dinner table, date or otherwise.  And no, you don't get extra points for that one. "

Carl Monster replied to Steve's discussion Bonus MAN points on your next fancy date.
"Unless you have a movie is show to catch, skip the watch or other timepiece. If the date is so special, why keep the time? Turn off the phone (enjoy that luxury as you won't have it as a parent). Don't focus on man points, focus on earning…"

"+1 Women's clothes for social events where men wear suits, dinner jackets, tuxedos, or cutaways have no pockets. This is part of why we carry purses (aka pocket books and hand bags). A man formally dressed has 2 or 4 pockets in his trousers and…"

Nathanael replied to Steve's discussion Bonus MAN points on your next fancy date.
"This might work for a certain type of girl, who's into vintage or maybe steampunk.  Other than that, I don't see the Bonus MAN points.  If you already use a pocket watch, or want to get one, go ahead, but I think doing it to…"

"The only advantage I see of a pocket watch is that, personally, pulling out your phone on a date, even if only to check the time, seems tacky."

"When I was dating, I tried to look neat and attractive, but it never occurred to me to bring along a gizmo to impress the lady (except as a jokey conversation piece).  I would expect a lady to think that was a little weird.  Why is he…"

Jack Bauer replied to Steve's discussion Bonus MAN points on your next fancy date.
"Eh.  I'm not sure a pocket watch is quite the 'manly' bonus you think ... particularly when your girl is carrying your phone in her purse for you.  Not all that manly to have to ask your date for your stuff.  I'd…"

Tyler M. replied to Steve's discussion Bonus MAN points on your next fancy date.
