And to anyone saying I could have left... He picked me up in his car and drove me to the place. The car ride home was equally fun.

And then after you've eaten, walk out and stick him with the bill.
He's just an idiot. I don't think he meant any harm, he probably thought breaking up in person was the kindest way of doing it. perhaps he still really wanted to be your friend and hoped the feelings would be mutual enough for the dinner to continue smoothly. he's a moron for assuming this though.
You didn't have to wait in silence with him, you could have just left...
You should have asked him if it was a date or just having dinner as friends. And I didn't see the need to get dressed up if you know the person.
#50, I'm honestly curious because I don't think I understand this convo, but why is that repulsive? Do you dress up all the time? Or is it repulsive because #33 dresses up to improve his chances of sex? It seems like as good a reason as any, but I wish I understood your complaint better. (Fully expecting to be downvoted to Hell for daring to ask.)
I don't see why a person wouldn't dress to impress. In my opinion isn't that why anyone dresses up nice for the opposite sex (atleast in a date situation). If you showed up looking like a slob I know I wouldn't want to do anything with you, regardless if you are a man or a woman. The more you impress the person the more chance of getting some booty. So why not?
Is it repulsive because you imply that not dressing up means not looking nice? Or because sometimes looking nice increases the chance of sex? Or maybe you are one of those people who cannot leave the house without spending minimum an hour on your appearance. On your profile you say you don't bite but you have already proven to be quite the bitch.
Not a single thing she said makes it okay for you to call her a bitch - she actually had valid points. People dress up to reach certain goals. You dress up for a job interview to impress the interviewer and get the job. You dress nicely for work to have a professional air about you. You dress up for a date to look nice for your date, because that's just what you do. It's nice to dress up. It boosts self esteem, it makes people look at you different... It is NOT a bad thing. And who knows, they may have gone to a fancy restaurant! You're supposed to wear dressier clothes to those.
40, True, your idea is much better. But I bet the guy wasn't thinking clearly cause he felt bad and thought his only options were text, call, or in person, and he probably didn't want it to seem like he was making small of their relationship by just saying it and leaving, hence the dinner. But I think just saying it and leaving probably would've been less awkward and better for both. Bet he's wishing he did it short and sweet now.
This kind of situation is where you GET A TO-GO BOX instead of sitting in horrible, awkward silence for an entire meal.
