Do you think feminism’s demand for equality in work, correct as it is, backfired in the implication that women be expected to half on dates?

    Any woman worth having will insist on paying half on every date. This is one of the surest ways guys can weed out the takers. Women have known this for more than a decade. So any guy who demands to pay all the time is just his own worst enemy (and likely to end up with a gold digger).

    I don't understand how something as UTTERLY COMMONPLACE as splitting the tab or taking turns paying is somehow this controversial thing you internet niceguys are trying to make it out to be. Jesus some of you don't date and it shows.

      That's been the general rule of etiquette for, like, ever. And yes, it applies to explicit invites, which many a date begins as, but certainly not all. I would say "we're all going to Applebees if you want to come" is ambiguous, but "can I take you to dinner?" is pretty explicit.

    I'm glad I am out of the dating scene.  It was brutal.  My wife works and she pays bills.

    I think that if a woman is working and earning money then she shouldn't have any problem paying for her share of a date. I'm not a feminist and I don't agree with a lot of their modern rhetoric but I earn significantly more money than my boyfriend, even though he makes a pretty good living, and I also pay the more of the bills because it makes sense. That has nothing to do with feminism - it's just logical for us to do it that way.
