Dear Poll: Is Dinner a Must on a First Date?

I just got off the phone with a girlfriend of mine who said that her crush finally asked her out on a date! I was so excited for her and asked where he was taking her to dinner to which she said, "No, no dinner. We are just meeting for a drink." Call me old-fashioned, but when a man asks a woman out on a date, I happen to feel that he should take her to dinner! In my opinion, bars just aren't the greatest place to get to know someone — they are loud, dark, and smelly. Having dinner with someone, however, is a much more intimate way to chat and learn about who's sitting across the table from you. Even if the date isn't going all that well, at least you can talk about the food you're eating!

So ladies, since my friend and I have such a difference of opinion, I have a feeling you will have something to say on the matter too. So what I want to know is — do you think dinner is a must on a first date?
