One of my friends has a huge, pressing dilemma. A guy she's casually dating keeps asking her to hang out during the day. Don't get me wrong, a glorious afternoon sipping bloody marys or BBQing is great ... but wining and dining shouldn't go completely out the window. (Does he turn into a pumpkin after 6pm?) Even though they're both in grad school and the semester just wrapped, mid-morning weekday scooter rides and CVS toiletry runs should not take the place of the romantic after-dusk dinner/drinks combo. Once you accompany someone to buy deodorant, there's no going back.
Is he just looking for a Price is Right viewing partner?
Is he strapped for cash? (coffee and a muffin does make for a cheap date.)
She should just tell him she's really addicted to soap operas and can't leave the house between 11 and 4 (5 if she's into Oprah).
