Dear Poll: Do you Say Thank you After a Date?

I was raised to always say your pleases and thank yous. Those manners translate to dating as well. When it comes to dating, if the man treats you to dinner, I think it's important to follow up with a call, an e-mail, or even a text to simply say thanks for last night - especially if you're interested in going out again! I have some friends that agree with my rationale and others that feel that it's the guy who should be following up after a date regardless of who pays the bill. So ladies, what do you think? Do you typically say thank you to the guy after being taken out or do you think it's his job to contact you to initiate another date?

Say thank you. It is rude not to do so.

I say Thank you that night. I would feel like he might think I was stalking him if I rang him the next day to say thank you.

The best way to say thankyou is the next day - over breakfast ;)

Why wouldn't anyone use their manners? Manners get you very far.

Thank you at night is good but if you want to make an excuse to talk to them again, sending another thank you isn't a bad idea

I think calling the next day seams desperate for a second date. Saying thank you all through the night each time he does something, open the door, pull out the chair, order your drink, pay the bill, etc) and a final "thank you, I had a great time" at the end of the date is sufficient.
