Letting us pay every time
Sometimes people confuse the word “equality” with “reversal.” No, men shouldn’t have to pay for the dinner or the movie or the drinks every time. BusinessWire reported findings from an EliteSingles survey showing that nearly half of men still think men should pay for the first date. Just shy of 20 percent of women believe in going Dutch. You know what didn’t show up often? The idea that women should be paying for everything. Guys, if you want to go Dutch on a first date, that’s fine. And when you’re dating a woman, it’s expected you may take turns paying for things. But don’t become a mooch who lets her pay every time. There’s nothing equal about that.
