I'm dating again after a few years of just occasional, non serious dates. I'm 22 now, so not exactly over the hill. But I've been a single mom for nearly 4½ years, during which time I've really restricted myself to my dd's life and happiness. And I'm sure that anyone (woman or man) gets more selfish when they are with themselves or only their own gender. BUT when I was 16, 17, 18 I was wined and dined (well, bought a BigMac and a Coke!) and not criticised for little things, cos in those days whether boys or men really did care for me or not they at least 'pretended' to, because they – well to put it bluntly –wanted to get into my pants.
But now, I've been getting "Stace, don't u think u should let me drive cos I can handle stick shift better than you" (unlikely, I've been driving stick since I passed my test) or "Stace we ought to go halves on this meal cos I don’t get paid til next week" (maybe I'm just dating the wrong guys?) or one even said to me "It's not your time of the month is it?" (I mean – apologies – but wtf??).
Perhaps I'm not the best girl for a guy to take out (correction, for a guy to "go halves" on) but shouldn’t they be courteous and just say afterwards "sorry Stace but I don't think we are right for each other" rather than prove how ignorant they are on the date?
Or has dating changed so much in 4 years? Are we considered even less worthy by men now than we used to be ?
(And btw if anyone links this with my other posting today, there is NO WAY that I would ever mention 'size' to the guy – so you can't accuse me of complaining here after complaining to him!)

Are you dating this one guy or many guys? From your other post, it sounds like you are dating several and if that is so, how do you expect a man to treat you like a woman if you are fooling around with every guy you date?
