What are your thoughts?

So, today , I came across this article by Samantha Brett during my lunch break.

It was about rules and regulations between men and women in the dating scene.

My question is this, "Should men pay the bill on the first date?"

There is a lot of controversy on who should do this and that, if you do that, you're blah blah blah, and if you don't, you're blah blah blah...

As for me, I believe that especially on the first date, the guy should be the gentleman and pay for the bill, probably unless the woman was the one who asked the guy out, but yet again, I still believe that the guy should offer to pay it, and pay it. Call me old-fashioned, but I like to be swept of my feet and be the girl in the relationship. As well as there are other times, where the woman can chip in, like buying the pop corns and drinks/snacks when you watch a movie together, though, it doesn't sound as much but it still counts, and contribute to the relationship. I also do believe that there are other things that should be contributed equally between the couple.

I am not trying to start an arguement, but that's just my thoughts. Everyone is different, some women dont mind paying on the first date, some do. I'm not speaking for all women, just mine. As every relationship is different from one another.

I would love to hear your thoughts...

Happy loving :)

Yes it's a hard one as the instinct to be swept off one's feet is strong but you also want to be independent!
