Ordering for someone, some find it romantic, some find it insulting:I met up with some friends over the weekend, and we had a big group dinner at a Thai place I’d never been to. But my friend brought her boyfriend, who HAD been there before . . . many, many times. So instead of asking us what we wanted, he ordered for everyone at the table… including me and my girlfriend. It felt weirdly emasculating. I don’t want some other dude ordering for my girlfriend, or me. I get that he knew the food and he’d been there before, but I still didn’t like it. Now I understand why a lot of women hate when guys do this stuff for them. Am I being a baby? Or do other guys agree that he crossed a line? James, 38
Men, what did another guy do that made you feel emasculated? Or, what will you absolutely NOT tolerate another guy doing around you?
Is ordering for someone else ever okay?
