I cant believe USO and AO is as fun as Wimbledon and RG!!! For sure Wimbledon and RG are 10 times more beautiful and got a great character. And the parties too!

Not possible!!
For me, Roland Garros is the best, followed by Wimbledon. I found the U.S. Open a bit too loud and chaotic. NYC is great, but I'm not wired for it. Copenhagen is my speed. Slam parties are a little too crowded for me.

Roland Garros got the nicest courts and atmosphere. I like the French ways a lot. I like the way to have a conversation and the way they party as well. A good crowd.
Wimbledon w the roof made Wimbledon not that great anymore imo. Also there its old crowd and not as fun and lively as RG. But Wimbledon Village got a great atmosphere and I had a lot of fun there. AELTC is a dull place to hang out if not watching tennis.

A part from that, Monte Carlo is the most beautiful tennis club I have ever seen in my life. I have never been there. But when I watch it... mmmm I dream away being a member of that club and play with the azure colored sky over me and the salty sea breeze, the red clay.
Its esthetic to the core. Its natural and classy.

I agree, but I haven't been to Wimbledon since the roof. I've been to the Monte Carlo tournament and it's a really beautiful setting. An interesting tennis experience for me was when I was about twenty, and I saw Borg's "comeback" first round loss with some Swedes. It was a circus, like a scene from a Fellini movie, with all sorts of characters showing up to watch Borg. Poor Borg was so nervous that I could see his hand shaking during warm-up serves.

Poor Borg! Sounds epic though to have witnessed that! I bet it was THE PLACE to be, every Borg match those days. At MC as well...Sounds like Fellini vibe for sure! Im going to Rome this year, meeting many from my family there for tennis. Rome also got nice courts and great atmosphere. Whats extra nice about Italian open is that Rome is a fantastic city. My parents named me after a Roman Goddess so I feel a bond to that city.

Novak is practicing at Monte Carlo tennis club. Well, well. Next life I have to live there and play tennis 8-B

I think you and Novak have a lot in common, personality wise ! :D
 
Yes why not ? she already took out her wallet before I could say no. I was thinking to myself, hummm, maybe this is a sign that she likes me.
I don't mind sharing lunch/dinner if I am on a date. But no one is getting laid because of it. I only share because it's the right thing to do and also, I keep control of things just as much as the other guy. Just because someone paid for my dinner doesn't mean he is getting laid. No sir.

Anyways, did you like her back?

Of course, I dont' expect some girl to sleep with me cause I bought her lunch. but this was different, she bought me lunch. Yes, I did like her back, she was a cute California blonde, there wasn't anything not to like. We were together for few months but went our separate ways after that. You know how it is in college. It isn't same as regular grown up dating, it is more like sleep buddy kind of situation. Unless of course you fall in love but then that wasn't exactly fall in love kind of dating.

Good enough. I approve.

Why would sharing “be the right thing to do:unsure::unsure::unsure::unsure::unsure::unsure: In my background sharing would be wrong thing to do if it meant someone felt stressed or maybe worse, excluded from events :confused::confused::confused:

I have no idea what you are talking about. If someone invites me to dinner (date or otherwise) then I am fine with him paying for my dinner. He invited me after all. But if I am going out with a guy, say dating him for a while, then I prefer to share. But in all honesty, I don't like to go on dates. I prefer going out as friends. And if I feel like continue with it, I will.

In other words, If a guy invites me for dinner as a date, someone I hardly know, it's more than likely I will reject it. And I have. It has nothing to do anyone's background. I have my own sets of things that I go by.

You wrote “it would be the right thing to do” :oops::oops: so I wondered how that worked :unsure::unsure: from above though it seems situational :p:p:p no wrong or right :giggle:

For me it's the right thing to do. I go out with friends where we all chip in. When I was with my last boyfriend, he'd pay most of the time because he insisted on it though I didn't see why I wouldn't pay for my own food when I am perfectly able to pay for it. It kind of undermines my ability. With my other EX where we were both students, we'd always split. And there was another time where my EX was still a student and I was with a job, I paid on most occasions.

When I go out with my sister, I do tend to pay most of the time and don't let her pay. I just feel uncomfortable if someone pays for my food all the time. Or most of the time.

You’re saying it’s situational = no hard and fast wrong or right (y)

Some people believe black and white in splits :sneaky: others in one party pays :whistle:others still believe the invitee pays :laughing: others according the gender :unsure: and others to income dynamics :confused:
