honestly i dont know why its still like this, but one thing is for sure. Im not complaining :P. Read my above post. It just makes me feel more at ease if he's paying.. would you ever let a girl pay for you when you're on a date apple? (Your new nick name is apple from now on because its too long. i hope you dont mind )


lol, i don't mind

but as i said i'm a feminist in that i believe in equality between the sexes. yeah i don't date girls who don't pay 50/50. i wouldn't let any girl pick up my bill though! i always pay for me and i think she should pay for herself. any relationship has to be a 50/50 commitment paying for dates is no exception to me.

btw its not just him that gives and gives and gives. Sometimes i buy him coffee just before he arrives so he doesnt have to pay for mine and his. And other times i buy tickets to a basketball game or to a theater play, so he doesnt have to pay for me since it was my idea. But at the end he ends up spending money on me anyway, either by driving me there, by wasting gass.
or buying me a drink and something to eat at the game
or again buying me things at the gift shop when we are at the grand theaters. I dont know how to explain it...its just the way it is. Even if the girl tried to pay and tried to be equal he still ends up paying for her. why bother fighting it, as long as you dont smooch off of him. When ever i buy stuff like that he gets mad at me. I think he doesnt like the idea of his girlfriend supporting him and paying for things... if i ever do pay for anything he just goes and spends twice as much as i payed to lead himself more..ugh i dont know what im babbling on about. i cant explain myself. (x. X )


but i guess i don't believe in cars so i don't have the wasting gass problem ^_^ i see your point that guys usually end up spending more on gifts and stuff. i must admit i am a bit like that, i spend waaay too much on gifts but that's only usually twice a year (christamundo and birthdays). still don't you think if you went to a ball game and you where hungry that you should pay for your own food? i mean how do you feel about a man feeding you? to me i would be offended.

why fight it? because its a step towards true equality between the sexes. i was raised by a single mother who was a dv officer/councillor. do you know the number one rationale men give for beating their girlfriends/wives? i paid for everything and she doesn't act the way i want.

that's 90% of men who have committed dv think if they pay it gives them the right to dictate the girl.

that's a scary thought and just something for you all to ponder next time a guy pays for you

I pay because I just think that's how it should go, I don't spend all my money on every little thing a girl wants though. I dunno, it's just one of the things I think a guy should do, I actually like doing it, it's like it's a mans job to protect and provide or something like that.

I think it'd be nice if the guy paid for things once in a while. I say this because I am seriously always the one paying for food and tickets and everything. I even had one boyfriend ask me for money for lunch pretty much everyday -__-

Lol. He was a rather blunt guy and wasn't afraid to hit girls. He never hit like, abusively, but you know how people lightly smack people for making fun of them? Yeah well his smacks weren't exactly all that light. And no offense taken. I and many others still wonder to this day why I went out with him, lol. Though we're pretty good friends now.

Usually i see guys pay for for the dates, but i think it should be 50/50 but not keep it strict like that. I mean, lets say the guy pays for dinner, and the girl pays for the tickets, it doesnt have to be exact in value more like not letting the date being one sided on paying XP

If you had a very wealthy boyfriend, I think you would totally ride those coattails. :p

Seriously though, the difference really lies in a person's intentions and actions. Even if you're not rich and your bf is very wealthy, if you give as much as you can in the relationship, then that is more than enough.

If you just take take take and never give anything back, that is just wrong, as you said.

I really hope you don't mean that literally. Sounds impossible, but google it I'm sure you'll find something you'd rather not.
