I was on a date last night and my date had the audacity to tell me to pay for her dinner. I told her that she should pay her dinner and that I should pay for my dinner. She got mad and obviously we will never see each other again. Why do guys have to pay for a woman's date? Women work too; they should pay their part of the date.

If it was a first date, and you asked her on it, you should've paid. I wouldn't have told you to pay for my dinner, I probably would've even offered to split it. But if you didn't cover it on a first date that you asked me on, I wouldn't have gone out with you again. You'd seem cheap and like you didn't care at all about being a gentleman or impressing me. Might be unfair, but there are lots of things that are unfair in the dating game (slut vs. stud complex anyone?) Women are equals now, like you say, but society still won't allow us to sleep around like a man can. Sure we can do it if we want to, just like you can refuse to pay for a date if you want to, but those women who sleep around a ton are going to have a hard time getting a boyfriend. Just like with your way of doing things, you'll have a hard time getting a girlfriend, or even a second date.
I've been on plenty of first dates and I've never had a guy not pay the whole thing. So with that amount of men willing to be gentleman on a first date, especially when they're the ones doing the asking, I wouldn't waste my time on the few who aren't willing. Besides, I think if my father ever found out a guy made me split on the first date, he'd never let me go on a second with him (even though I'm out of the house haha).3
