In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan shared his thoughts on dating, what he looks for in a woman, and whether or not sex on a first date is a good idea.
The 27-year-old actor, who is single and describes himself as “old school,” said he’s attracted to women with a sense of humor and who are “comfortable in the kitchen.” When asked if could he respect a woman who had sex on a first date, Jordan differed from his That Awkward Moment co-stars Zac Efron and Miles Teller, and said no. Sorta.
Glamour: So let me ask you the eternal “are you going to respect me if we have sex on the first date?” question.
Michael: No. No. Maybe…but a little less.
Miles: Well, I will.
While I respect Jordan’s opinion, and his honesty, I wonder how many women who choose to engage in casual sex with a man even care if they “respect” them in the morning.
Using sex to turn a hookup into a relationship is one thing (and probably a very bad tactic), but if a woman is just trying to get hers, then I doubt she cares if her partner wants to take her home to mama. I also wonder why women aren’t ever asked this question. Like, do WE respect men who “give it up to soon”?
