Things He Never Wants You To Pay For

There are some things that, when you pay for them, make your man feel emasculated. Here are 14 things he never wants you to pay for.

    Only a weak man can’t handle this stuff…

    This is straight, sexist NONSENSE.

    And let me guess, while men are spending their money on these things, women should spend their money on groceries and things for the house and kids, right? As a married woman, I find this list ridiculous. And when I was single, men paid for things but they also LOVED it when I would offer or treat them sometimes; it made them feel special – I think it was kind of a turn on. IDK, maybe men are different where you are.

  • SDW3

    I think this list is accurate depending on the TYPE of man you are dating. Nothing that she mentioned in this article means you’re not an independent woman or not a member of the modern age, but rather you are a woman who knows how to let a man be a man.

    Sh!t as high as gas is right now, I don’t think anyone is keeping tabs on who’s filling the tank up. People just want to get around.

  • Tyra

    Julia, this is a lie. Cause my Boyfriend NEVER Pays for his gas or when we go out. I’m always spending my money paying for things. This is frustrating. I’m clearly with a Bum.

    I don’t think the article is that bad, it’s true for the most part. Not so sure about that last one, but everything else I can understand. It might be a little emasculating.

      I actually agree. With my bf he never wants me to pay even when I offer to at least go half. Idk if its because of his culture or a pride thing but some guys in the 21st century are still like this. And I’m not complaining lol

      • iHM

        Lol, me neither!! There’s nothing wrong with a man wanting to help take care of his woman financially. If it makes him feel good, who am I to argue against it?

  • Janelle

    This is the most random shitt ever.

  • Kath

    Really? There are some new age men who do not mind you paying for his lip gloss hun, and no, he ain’t gay. I hate metrosexual men.

  • Nya Jacobsen

    Okay, so this article SUCKS. I would have to read it agian

  • A Man Who Doesn’t Mind

    As a man, I just wonder where you came up with these comments. I don’t know who you have dated, or consulted with, to come up with this list. But, it is just plain ridiculous! Where did you get the rationale for all of the reasons why a woman shouldn’t pay for these “14 things he never wants you to pay for?”

  • callitlikeitis

    I don’t mean to sound mean but Julia Austin where do you come up with the stuff you write about? I’m not sure if you’re speaking from dating stand point or married one. The article would have been informational if you have written about “14 things you shouldn’t pay/do for for a man while dating/getting to know him”

      exactly! bc when i was single i was getting my own damn condoms i dont trust no man try to pull one over on me “i forgot” smh
