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.

Miles: Yes.

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”?

What do you think, Clutchettes?

    1) if he is engaging in the screwing just as willingly, he needs to sit his hypocritical ass down. 2) If a woman is trying to just hit it and quit it as well, to hell with their unsolicited opinion and 3) why do men continue to place so much worth on a woman based on when she wants to have sex when we all know good and well that at the end of the day, ya’ll are either feeling each other or you’re not.

    • Right? I hope the type of man who doesn’t respect a woman for “putting out” on the first date also doesn’t respect a man who does the same!

  • The comments will surely scare you away from casual sex.

  • I respect his opinion. I’ve been saying this for the longest time. Men will not respect you if you give it up too soon and they get it too easy. Nothing good or worth having will come easily. But like you said, if the intention is simply to ‘get yours’ vs. having something deeper that’s a different story. I think what happens in most cases is that it is casual for both parties in the beginning and then somewhere along the way women start catching feelings and things become more serious.

    While I agree with him, he has probably slept with a few women on a first date. Men that say it’s a deal breaker, yet take what is given on a first date are nothing but hypocrites.
