In Belgium dating is much more casual than in other places from what i can read here. We are not so formal here and mostly people pay for their own stuff. I have seen that if you dont pay for a woman's food on a date in other countries you are called bad things. I wonder, if you casually go to the cinema, do you pay for their ticket as well? What about their snacks? Do you pay that as well? I personally think that if you pay for a womans food all the time, while it is not a gift you are a doormat that seeks female approval. I have yet to see a Belgian woman who does not want to pay for her own stuff on a date like going out eating.
My ex girlfriend chatted up some fat nerd who was into anime (nothing against anime) my ex was also into anime, she was about to go to a convention of cosplay and anime and she made that guy pay for her anime schoolgirl outfit. We went for drinks one time and she never asked me to pay, she also paid her own train tickets. I bought her a necklace once and she did almost not want to accept it. We were also gone shopping once and she was interested in this teddy bear and i wanted to buy it for her but she prevented me from doing it. When i asked her what she did in return for that guy she said she flirted with him for it by text message. I am not sure if she has ever seen this guy.
I want to understand up to how much of a woman's stuff men pay in other cultures.

i live in Canada, and it really depends on the relationship. some women like the guy to pay for everything, but i'm quite content to pay for myself.
in north america, a lot of guys have this weird expectation that women owe them sex if they pay for the date. so i like to eliminate that possibility by buying my own supper/movie ticket/whatever.
in my current (long-term) relationship, though, my man and i either split or alternate who pays. if i pay for dinner, he buys the movie tickets, or vice versa; we live together, so all major expenses are shared.0
