I was talking to a neighbors Nanny. She is around 30 & so sweet. She brings the kids over to play with mine occasionally. She dumped her boyfriend since he lived with his Mom, she moved in & lived in his room with him & paid his Mom rent! Anyway she found a new Boyfriend & is so excited. She went on a first date & said "HE PAID for dinner for me!" She explained how she was prepared to pay her own way. He even held the door for her & opened the car door for her. I was dumbfounded. I was like "yea, so?? Of course he SHOULD pay & hold the door for you!" I told her NOT to expect anything less from a Man.
When I dated this is how it was. I would accept nothing less! LOL
I've been married almost 21 years & I told my DH the story. He laughed & said "hey did you ever pay for ANYTHING when we dated? I said "Hey, the mere presence of my company was enough!" LOL!
Seriously though, how things have changed. I'm glad I'm not younger & dating now.
How about when you were dating, did you split everything or pay for him on a first date?

Women are SO independent and so out to prove that we can do anything a man can do that women have lost sight of letting a man be a man and do man things....
Like one of the above comments implies.
I am woman hear me roar! Ugh.
Sometimes, let the door be opened and let a man pay...
