In a world full of “independent women” and men that are comfortable letting the woman take the lead, it’s fair to say that when it comes to gender roles, the lines have definitely gotten blurred.
So when it comes to paying on the first date, things can tend to become a little tricky. Back in the day, (before feminism and burning bras), it was understood that the man ALWAYS picked up the check on dates, especially the first.
But now with folks not knowing “who’s on first,” sometimes picking up the tab can become quite a conundrum. I am so old-school when it comes to things of this nature…..so I definitely expect a man to pay for the first date. No ifs, ands or buts about it. And I definitely plan on raising my son to court a woman properly and pay for dates as well.
So what do you think—who should pay for the first date: the man or the woman?
What say you??
