Defined by Merriam-Webster online dictionary date means an appointment to meet at specified time; especially: a social engagement between two persons that often has a romantic character.
I have been single for a longtime this dating thing is getting more and more complicated for me especially when it comes to who pays for the date and when. I am used to traditional dating a man and woman go out the man picks up the tab.
Where is the tradition of dating gone?
This New Age dating trend issue came up recently during a conversation with a guy friend. He told me that if a woman asks a man out she should pay, but if she suggests the idea and he asks her out he pays. Well I always thought the guy pays unless the woman volunteers pay the bill. Then he went on to say how he likes when a woman pays because it shows can hold her own. I thought to myself whatever!
I feel woman should be wine and dine during a courtship, and men should not expect anything in return (sex). Our company and companionship should be enough, but if it’s not then men do not ask her nor except if she asks you out on a second date where she is expected to pay.
Yes we can pay for it if need be, but it should be okay to go out on a second, third, or fourth date without feeling like it our turn to pay when the bill arrives. Or feel guilty that he is paying for the bill.
Dating should be fun, exciting and getting to know one other not worrying about who asked who out and who’s gonna foot the bill!AngeB!
