How Has the Recession Affected Dating?

Remember Madonna’s Material Girl video? A begowned pre-Madge Madge channels Marilyn Monroe, is plied with diamonds by a dancing troupe of tuxedoed beefcakes, and ends up getting wooed by a man (played by Keith Carradine) proffering daisies and a lift in a dusty pick-up truck. Madonna, in her own way, could have been offering tips about how to date in a recession: Keep it simple. Don’t break the bank to impress. And, whatever you do, don’t give the girl diamonds — at least not on the first date.
