I have asked two guys out and even picked the restaurant but neither of them let me pay the whole thing (not even half of the price). I come from a wealthy family (both parents have an MD degree) so I got no problems paying but I guess some things just stay the same.
Long ago with guy 1, the price came out $28 and since he insisted on helping out, I only paid $6.
Guy 2, which was only a couple days ago I actually picked Reb Lobster and it came out $45. Again, he insisted on helping out with $35. I kind of felt bad. We're going to go out sometime next week but I guess now I'm going to make it simpler.
Both of them gave me the same reason of: You know, I didn't want to see you waste so much.

Men are still being raised that if they don't take care of the woman, then he is a failure as a man. I am not bashing feminism here, but feminism has not done as much to change the way society judges men, like it as for women. If a man doesn't step up and fulfill his gender role, he is far more likely to be thought poorly of by the rest of society, than a woman that doesn't fulfill her gender role.
There is still a lot of work that needs to be done, in gender equality. Unfortunately talking about male equality issues is a taboo subject, and the words get twisted into acting like the guy hates feminism and is a horrible person to women.1
