I love this idea as well. To me this idea could be the basis for a really good futuristic sci-fi novel where some event in the future has left a large percentage of the male population infertile. This makes women wanting husbands that can provide an actual family a scarce commodity. In dating, women become the aggressors and due to the scarcity of fertile men, race is no longer an issue.
The antagonistic part of the theme/plot would be that many younger infertile men still have normal high sex drives and try to fool women into being their partners. Sub plots could include the dinner date theme and a play on the old, and totally wrong, adage that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
All in all I think it is a great idea to write this one through a woman's POV. I see her as being brought up in the old way when men were more plentiful and the story is about how she struggles to cope with the new world order and how in the end, she triumphs.
I don't have the chops to write something like this and do it any justice, but maybe you do ReneeBanks.
