The first time we went out he told me he was supposed to pay as the guy but I said let's split. We are both students so I don't feel comfortable with you paying alone. Eversince then he hasn't even paid for a single cup of coffee of mine while I have done so on numerous occasions. I kinda feel like he might be cheap... Is this normal?
It's not normal. Somehow, he didn't understand the word "split". Ask him if he's having money troubles. And if he isn't, then you should start just paying for yourself. If he bitches about it, then remind him that you two agreed on splitting the bills. Yeah, it sounds like he's being cheap. He should at least pay for his own.
I'd say it's pretty normal. You guys are both students so similar expenses, namely tuition. Probably similar incomes for now as well.
Why should the guy still be expected to pay, or at least every time, if girls want equality? You realize that that tradition comes from times when women weren't legally able to work, and so were 100% dependent on their man to be the main/only breadwinner.
I think he should pay for yours sometimes, because you sometimes pay for his. it's a bit cheap, because your the only one treating. It is normal, everyone has different financial situation, or maybe he needs to save up his money for something else.
Feminists have demanded that girls being treated equal as guys; and now we guys are doing it... and yet we get sh*t for it. We just can't win against this 18th century mentality all too many women still possess
You said lets split. The first date sets the standard for the entire relationship. You chose this. If you feel as if he should be paying, then tell him he should be paying like you told him you should split it. What kind of crazy bitch are you?
He seems like he might be a pincher. But even pinchers go out of their way to buy something for the ones they love. He could be selfish and enjoying the fact you are paying for everything. I say go out to eat and when the check comes say I didn't bring cash and see what he does. But bring cash just in case though. Talk to him about it in a way that doesn't hurt his manhood.
