Though men and women both clearly have needs, “needy” women are deemed as such when their needs are more than, or different from, the needs of the men they’re dating. (Assuming they date men, of course.) Calling a woman “needy,” just like calling her “crazy,” is the surest way to de-legitimize everything she says or does. She is needy, probably one of the worst possible insults to a young woman. This is why that guy who waited a week to call could either be playing it cool or could be completely disinterested.
You already know and respect each other; as long as there is an attraction present, there is no reason why your guy or female friend may not someday be your love interest.

There are no rules here – the guy doesn’t have to pay, the person who suggested the date doesn’t have to pay, you don’t have to go halves. The single worst place you can choose for a date is a noisy environment where you can’t hear yourselves think, let alone talk. That means nightclubs and loud bars are a huge no-no. If you’re going to see a band, make sure there is plenty of time before and after for chatting. Consider meeting up beforehand for drinks, so you can fit in a little pre-gig chatting.
