I want a girlfriend but i have been holding back because i don't want to spend 2 x the price on restaurants, movies, activities etc.
I'd date a feminist that believes in gender equality if she wants to pay for everything though

I wouldn't date a guy like that. Not because I'm worried about money or whatever else, but because I would feel like he never trusted me and only viewed our time together as a monetary exchange.
Like it's okay to say I'll get things this time, you get them next time sort of thing. Dating is also a precursor to long term relationships. And in long term relationships there's going to be "ours" at some point. I need to know that a guy can contribute and commit to that idea of ours responsibly some day.0

I think whoever earns more money should be the one to offer paying for things from time to time, but I see it as a form of general courtesy. I have invited male friends and female friends alike to consume food, and I paid for their half because I am the one with the better wage. I would probably expect them to do the same if they were the ones with more money at their disposal, though. I would try to pay my own, but it is a nice gesture of them - if they can, but are not willing, then that is disappointing.0
