A male friend of mine are pressuring me to go on a blind date. I am 26 years of age, male, and have never been on a date before and I am not comfortable with the idea. The thought of going on a date gives me a lot of displeasure and if I were to go on a date it would definitely put me outside my comfort zone. The male friend offered to set up a date between me and a female friend of his. I decided to reject my friend's offer. My friend has been arguing with me that I should go on a date. What I would like to know is whether it is right for me to go on a date or not. What do you think of the arguments? Who do you think is more right? My arguments against dating: 1. I estimate that dating gives me displeasure. 2. I estimate that dating is costly and I want to save up. 3. I estimate that dating won't give me any benefits. 4. Therefore, according to cost-benefit analysis, I should not date. Friend's arguments for dating: 1. Since I have never tried dating, I should try it. I don't know that it is bad. 2. Dating can be cheap. 3. If my partner loves me she will take care of me if I go through hard times. 4. That most people date proves that most people find a lot of benefit in it.
