Well If I were you I would teach him to treat all girls with respect.So yes if he asked her out to the movies or dinner he needs to pay ALWAYS! I know for me if a guy took me to the movies but then expected me to pay my own way I would have been pissed!I'm working at a day camp this summer with guess who? In my experience, friends appreciate hearing directly from friends rather than learning sensitive information from others. I would like to go on a date with Jim but I don't want to upset my friend and I don't want other girls to get mad at me. I asked my mother and she said that I should write to you. There is, of course, no simple answer to your question about when and whether or not it is socially acceptable to date a friend's ex. If your friend and this young man broke up within the past week or so, then I would suggest that it is too soon to start dating her ex-boyfriend. Second, how close a friendship do you have with this young woman?If your friend is not terribly upset about the break-up and has already moved on and re-grouped then the coast is clear for you to date the ex.

I know times are different and keep changing but I am only 28 and I still remember boys doing this stuff for me back when I was a teen so I know this isn't way out of the ordinary.
My opinion -- the boy should pay, open car doors, pull out chairs, all the old-fashioned, traditional stuff. (This is the opposite of my initial opinion from when I began this marriage/childrearing thing, 20 years ago.) The reason, IMO, that he should do this, is that if he learns to treat a female well, he will have a long, happy, healthy marriage someday.
The 60's and 70's sure ruined a lot of things for us females.
And if guys learn early on to take care of females, they won't be grudging and pissed off later on if she stays home to take care of his children.
