It seems to me that while women are earning more and more they still look for a man to get the check isn't that counter the whole independent ladies movement?

I say it shouldn't matter though there are some men that can't handle not being that person. I have dated before and paid for meals, but no one knew sometimes because I would make sure my date is okay with that situation and give him the money to pay beforehand so that if it tweaks his ego or pride then at least it won't show in public. To some people this matters. To others it doesn't. Old school say men are the breadwinner and they should take care of the woman. If a woman feel like you can't feed her then she may feel like you can't do much else which sometimes interpret to you not being "man" enough for her.1
