Just curious as to what the majority of men think about paying on dates. Although it may be the gentleman like thing to do, I dont think its a problem for a woman to pay. When should a woman pay? Does it emasculate a man if a woman pays or does a man find it a bother if he pays all the time for dinner and dates and such?

I think that the person who sends the date invitation should be in charge of planning the evening and paying for everything involved. If the man sends the invitation, the man pays. If the woman sends the invitation, the woman pays.
It seems rude to me to send a date invitation without a promise that the date is already taken care of. When you rely on the invitee to pay their own way, then you have not guaranteed that the date will go off without a hitch. The invitation sounds like this: "I want to show you a good time. Well, half of a good time. I'm the good half. The other half is something that you need to pay for. How much will it cost for the food, the movies, the games, and everything else? Who knows. Just bring all your money, because you might need it. And if you don't have enough money, well, I'm not going to promise to pay for it, so you are going to need to stress out about that the whole evening. Doesn't this date sound wonderful?" What kind of bullshit date invitation is that, you know?1
