It's kind of annoying how women nowadays claim to be for equality yet they still expect us to pay every single thing for them. Even older women dating younger men expect men to pay for them.
If this is supposed to be a "new era" of the whole gender thing, then why is there still so many expectations forced down on men's throats?
Please ladies, give me a sincere answer and not give me an answer that you don't truly believe or agree with just because I'd like to hear it.

Oh my god, so many people have asked this before.
First, I want to say that you are lumping ALL women together. The feminists who believe in gender equality are not the same women who expect guys to pay all the time. If one girl says she wants equality, and another girl says she wants the guy to pay, that is not a contradiction, it is simply two girls with different opinions.
Secondly, yes there are some women who believe in traditional gender roles and think the guy needs to pay. But there are also women who believe that whoever does the asking pays. And there are plenty of women who believe that a couple should take turns paying. And plenty of women who split the bill.
I always split the bill, unless the guy absolutely insists on paying (and yeah, there are a lot of guys out there who feel emasculated if the woman pays. So they are perpetuating this expectation that the guy needs to pay). But I always bring money and I never expect him to pay. If he truly wants to then I'll let him, but most guys that I've gone out with are happy to split the bill, so that's what we do.1
