Feminists make such a huge hoopla about indepence and that women should be this that and the other thing. But its just amazing how many then also claim entitlement that guys HAVE to pay for their meal. Its like what happened to that whole speech about "women being independent? NOW you're suddenly entitled to a mans wallet. I thought you wanted men NOT to objectify you.
Why not pay your own way. Especially if its the first date. A man has not reason to foot your bill when they probably don't even know you.
At least maybe say how about I pay my half and let the guy have the chivalrous feeling of being the prince charming. Do stuff in the relationship that makes you an equal rather than assume just cause your his potential wife that suddenly equals your the new real owner of the potential husbands wallet. If you want to be treated equally then take equal responsibility of the realtionship.
