Assuming there is a bill, what would you think if you split the bill on a first date? Keep in mind we live in 2016, not the 1400s and women have jobs. I don't see why this is an issue. Yeah women want to know if a guy is committed/interested but if you're proof of commitment is money, in my opinion you have a very shallow view of dating.

I wouldn't mind doing it. I would pay for my things. But in all honesty, I would think about whether or not you are true gentlemen. Point: not all girls support this feminist bs. Just pay for my cheap meal. It doesn't matter for you but to me and most girls it will mean much. Trust me. (even if I'm about to get d'voted by catfishes and guys).13

First of all, what does it being 2016 have to do with anything? Why does it being 2016 automatically make it better?
Secondly, it's "your" in this context. "Your" indicates possession or ownership. "You're" is a contraction of "you are". Please ask YOUR English teacher to pay closer attention to YOUR work (seeing as YOU'RE under 18 and still in school).
Third, paying for a date doesn't mean "proof of commitment", love, or affection. Paying for a first date is simply the proper thing to do. If you've seen things you like about someone and you are inviting them to spend time with you, then you should be the one to pay. If you invite someone over to your house for the first time, would you expect them to clean it up and order or cook the food? This goes for both guys AND girls; whoever asks pays.
Now again, that's just the first date. If I ask a woman out, we go out, set up a second date and she wants to pay for that one or split the bill, that's fine. But for the first datex whoever asks should be the one to pay.
And so what if women have jobs these days? A few months ago after church, a whole bunch of us went out for brunch. My roommate was with us and he paid for EVERYONE and we all had jobs, some of them very well-paying. What do you think about that? Was he trying to win everyone's affection or friendship?1
