What's wrong with girls paying for themselves, I don't get how
you (girl) didn't contribute to his earnings but expect to be paid
for theirs no manners which is an insult.

It's tradition, like dates dating back since forever have gone that way. Guys are suppose to get flowers, pick up the girl, and pay for the date. It's how you 'woo' her lol. Show her a good time, make her feel special. That's the important part, not how much you paid that night. If you don't think a girl is speical enough to want to treat then why ask her out at all?
That being said I could care less about gender roles, I will pay for myself on a first date (if the guy says that's how it's gonna be) and I pay for my dates with my boyfriend occasionally (I want to treat him too!). But if I have to pay for myself on a first date I will more then likely friend zone him. Because friends split checks.1
