Pretend we are on a first date--ideally, having coffee, lunch, dinner, or another generic, paid date. Now, pretend after the drink/meal/activity that I not only neglect to pay for your side of the expenses, but reveal also that I expect you to pay your own way on any future dates and activities as well.
Assuming that this first date is not wholly disappointing (at least, not until the bill arrives), how many of you girls would feel (initially, in response):
- Offended; I'm shocked! Who does this guy think he is?Vote A
- A bit surprised... But I'll probably still give the man chance.Vote B
- Relieved. Even though I have to pay, at least I know we're on equal ground.Vote C
- [I'm a guy], [Show me answers!], or [Other, Please Explain]Vote D

It's the perfect deal, especially if you're still young and don't have a job- why should your parents pay for my drinks? If you do earn money, it would be nice once in a while for you to pay. Like, every fifth time you guys go out for dinner, you can buy her a drink after. But whoa, it's no longer the time when a guy has to be the provider... As long as he doesn't act like one and e.g. has problems with his woman making more money ;)0
