So if a woman that is into you would lie and deceive others in order to be with you, you would want a relationship with that woman?

If someone were to do that, it would destroy my confidence in them. The whole relationship has started with a lie, no matter if I like them or not.




  > The whole relationship has started with a lie
You keep using that phrase but I do not think it means, what you think it means.

Should I be worried that my relationship 'started with bribery' because I handed the maitre'd $20 to get us a good table?


I don't know whether you should be worried. I do know that this type of behaviour is antisocial though - it promotes unfairness - people that made reservations or are waiting outside have to wait longer because someone has bribed their way in.

Maybe next time someone will pay $50 - because it is not something to worry about,no? - and you'll have to wait 15 minutes to get a seat.


Along similar lines, it's unfair to get pictures professionally taken, or to use cologne or makeup. Sorry, mating has always been an arms race to some extent, and that's not going to change.

Well. At least we are past the kidnapping and rape stage that was still common a couple centuries ago...
