Pancakes are delicious. There’s really nothing more to say about that.
But there is more to say about why men should always buy us pancakes. This isn’t as strange a requirement as you might initially think. Pancakes are generally considered a breakfast food (although delicious at any time of day). Breakfast is consumed in the morning. So what we’re really saying here is buy us some breakfast!
Basically, if a guy does well on a date he makes it to a super fun sleepover. If we bestow a guy with the privilege of making it to this stage, we expect a little something-something. And by “something-something” we mean pancakes! It’s the honorable thing really.
It’s rare for men to actually bother taking a woman to breakfast the morning after. But is it really that much of a commitment? We’re not looking for something long-term here. We’re not looking to have your babies, meet your momma or your friends, or dive into a deep, meaningful relationship. Maybe we don’t even want to see you again. (Were you even any good during the sleepover?) But give us a little credit and reward us for the effort we made. We can take separate cars if it’s that much of a hassle. But buy us some damn pancakes!
