For my boyfriend's birthday I took him to his favorite restaurant and rented his favorite movie so we could just chill at home and eat the cake I baked for him. I had to basically fight him for the restaurant and I could see him gritting his teeth as I payed for dinner and the movie. Is it so hard to let a girl pay? If so, why?

I've honestly never had a gf.(im 21...spwnt a lot of my life being shy...i got mroe social in colelge but haven't met anyone yet) .but I get the sentiment...basically its like this : in a prmitve sense...men and women traded...women neede a man to provide for her...giv ehe rshelter/food/protection...etc...and the woman coudl reproduce and provide children (and sex of course). Flash forward to the mdoenr day...women are becoming the dominant sex and we feel emasculated when we feel like were not providing or doing our share...even though wer enot clubbing down wil beats to drag home for dinner...were not providing...so we think "Were does that lead us?" "if she doesn't need me for that? why does she need me? she could leave me at any mnute..theres no mutual need in this relationship?" IOF we don't get to do these things...there nothing we cna bring to the table a woman cant...and we feel worthless and vulenarable. this is a small example but all those emotions are invested in small acts like paying for dinner.2
