I had a very interesting conversation the other day with a few guys and they all expressed on how they hate paying the bill and would appreciate it if the bill was split or the girl pays for everything.
I would like to hear more opinions from other guys. So gentlemen what do you think?

I used to be gentlemanly like that but there were girls that saw it as an invitation to use me as an ATM on legs.
I now think that both of you are taking a risk and not expecting anything to come of it, so paying for one's own is fairer.
It's not a man's job to give girls all the food and drink they want to binge on in exchange for her company. His company and time is valuable, too.
Women need to think of men as friends, companions, best friends, other halfs, etc. rather than people who will take care of them. History has been there already. Women didn't get much of a say, men were permitted to do what they liked and women were stuck at home most of the day, doing housework and feeding the kids and woe betide her if her hubby's food wasn't about to be put on the table when he got home from work!
Thankfully all that is behind (most of) us. Now men and women have the opportunity to be a truly equal partnership with each having accountability and respect for the other, functioning adequately on their own but better together.
I dread to think what would happen if two old-fashioned lesbians went on a date. Neither would pay the bill! Old-fashioned gay men would argue because both want to pay. Thankfully times have changed.4

I think paying the bill should NOT be considered chivalery. It's just sexist. Everyone should pay for their damn food, you're both enjoying each others company you're not doing the other one a favour. It's just like some kind of prostitution in my opinion. Women shouldn't be paid to be someone's date.
Chivalery should be only about manners and unfortunately that is pretty dead these days with both genders.2
