SEX FO­RUM You want sex with me? Then show me a good time first!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SIN­GLE fel­las reckon that they are wast­ing HUN­DREDS of pounds on dates that don’t have a HAPPY END­ING.

A whop­ping two-thirds of bachelors ad­mit­ted to strik­ing out at least four times with­out man­ag­ing to seal the deal with their fe­male com­pan­ions.

And the ma­jor­ity of sin­gle­tons cal­cu­lated they had splashed out as much as £280 on ‘un­suc­cess­ful dates’, spend­ing on av­er­age £70 each time.

The re­search re­vealed that 44 per cent of peo­ple think they have spent too much cash on dates that haven’t worked out, with a fur­ther 45 per cent see­ing the money as ‘wasted’.

The sur­vey was car­ried out by TopCash­back.co.uk and quizzed 1,000 sin­gle peo­ple on their first date suc­cess rates.

It also re­vealed that more than half of those look­ing for love ad­mit­ted they would end a date early if it didn’t look promis­ing.

Women came out on top as the most likely to cut a date short in a bid to save money, with 62 per cent com­pared to just over half of guys.

Shock­ingly, more than half of sin­gle­tons con­fessed that they would ask their po­ten­tial lover to split the bill and a tight­fisted 35 per cent of daters have used dis­count codes or vouch­ers to keep costs down.

One in 10 even con­fessed to ask­ing for their cash back at the end of an un­suc­cess­ful ren­dezvous.

But top­less Sport stunna Carly Stacey said it’s no won­der th­ese fel­las are be­ing un­suc­cess­ful if they aren’t will­ing to show a girl a good time and flash some cash.

The 22-year-old, from Soli­hull, said: “When a guy asks me out, I fully ex­pect to be wined and dined and treated like a princess.

“Whether it’s lead­ing some­where or not, call me old fash­ioned but I think a man should be will­ing to spend a bit of cash on the first date.

“If a date wasn’t go­ing well then I’d def­i­nitely get out of there but it’s a step too far for a guy to ask a girl for their money back. I can’t be­lieve peo­ple would do that!”

“I’m not against hav­ing sex on a first date. If I like the bloke then its game on.

“But men shouldn’t just ex­pect a girl to drop her knick­ers just be­cause they have picked up the bill.”

The sur­vey also found that the cost is just too much for some peo­ple, with a fifth claim­ing that splash­ing out on failed dates has put them off dat­ing in the fu­ture.
