Hi everyone. I'm not a feminist or anything, in fact there are plenty of things in the feminist theory that I disagree with, but when it comes to love and dating, who should pay for the date. As to defend the male's point of view, we want to be the provider and the protector - when the female partner pays for the food, it's almost like depriving us of our usefulness - as if to say that we're not strong enough. I know it might be stupid in the eyes of girls but I'm sure other guys will immediately understand what I'm talking about.
What do you think?

I always expect guys to pay each time (as this is chivalrous, and as the correct etiquette is that the person that asked for the date, should pay ). I do offer to pay for small things like taxis etc though. I offer to pay also for meals (i. e go dutch), but do internally expect them to pay, as it is gentlemanly. My view is that they should be pulling all the stops out to impress, especially as you might take up an offer for someone else that treats you better otherwise!0
