LuAnn Dishes Same-Sex Dating Advice

RHONY star spills what's appropriate on a first date.

LuAnn de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York City
Sure, the Real Housewives of New York City are fighting to help same sex couples get to the altar, but how many are willing to help with the first date? Enter LuAnn de Lesseps.

"When two people of the same sex go out on a first date, the person who initiated the date should pay. Simply put, if you invite, you pay," the Countess tells Bay Windows, a New England GLBT newspaper. Say you really hit it off on that date: what's LuAnn's etiquette edict when it comes to running the bases? "The length of time between the first date and having sex is different for every couple. Use your best judgment and always protect yourself," the royal rules.

As for date number two, the singer advises to call – not text. "If you can't catch up with the person on the phone, sending an email is okay, but lacks the personal touch of a conversation."

Finally, the 'Wife – who's head over heels in love with her French beau – sees nothing wrong with playing the field until you find the right man or woman. "It's completely okay to date more than one person at a time before you become exclusive with one person. How will you know which person you want to be monogamous with if you don't sample what's out there first? Just be honest with the people you are dating so they where you stand."
