  • In this video, Stephen A. Smith shares some dating advice and discusses the topic of who should pay for dinner on a date. He begins by explaining that he will be giving dating advice at the end of each podcast episode based on questions and comments he receives. He emphasizes that he takes this advice seriously and wants it to be effective for those who seek his guidance. Stephen A. Smith mentions that he has received positive feedback in the past from both men and women who have found his advice helpful in improving their relationships. He reflects on his experience as a disc jockey in college, where he had a popular show playing romantic music, which still earns him gratitude from listeners. Moving on to the specific advice given by Paul Pierce, Stephen A. Smith addresses the question of whether a guy should pay for a dinner date if a girl asked him out, made the reservation, and invited her girlfriend along. He clarifies that the answer is no, the guy does not have to pay if he can afford it. Stephen A. Smith then delves into the complexities of relationships, highlighting that they can be unpredictable and feelings can change over time. He explains that women often value how a man looks at them and makes them feel, as it creates lasting memories. For men, visual appeal plays a significant role, and the more they like what they see, the more they are attracted. To add a personal touch, Stephen A. Smith shares that he has been in situations where arguments have arisen in relationships. In conclusion, Stephen A. Smith's dating advice centers around the idea that there is no obligation for a guy to pay for dinner if he is invited by a girl on a date, even if he has ample financial means. He emphasizes the importance of understanding the dynamics of relationships, noting that feelings and attractions can fluctuate. This advice reflects his experience and the feedback he has received from his audience.

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • I can do that.
  • So Paul Pierce gave advice and I'm very serious with my advice.
  • I take my advice very seriously because it's important to me that it works.
  • If anybody comes to me and they say, Stephen A, the advice didn't work for me, I'm upset.
  • Now there's plenty of men and women over the years listening to me when I was doing radio shows and television shows.
  • They're like, damn, Stephen A, that really, really worked, bro.
  • It really helped my relationship.
  • You the man.
  • So I take this very, very seriously.
  • And I was a disc jockey in college too.
  • I had my own show at night, at least two, three nights a week where I was playing nothing but slow jams, R&B.

  • You should think about the women you love, Your mama, your sisters, your nieces, your daughter, stuff like that.
  • How would you want them treated?
  • Even if they could afford it, if they were out with a man and that man had it, you know you would want him to pick up, dig into his pocket, pull out of his wallet and pay for that meal.
  • Just as much as you would want him to get up and pull the chair out from her when she's standing up, push the chair in for her when she's sitting down, open that car door for her when she's getting in,
  • Close that car door once she's in.

  • Never deviate from that, no matter how they make you feel.
  • Because when you alone at home in the mirror, all you see is you, the best of you or the worst of you.
  • Now get on out of here.
