Am I missing something, or do girls know this and basically just hide it and go along with it?

I think it has to do with the fact that's always how things seemed to be: the guy asks, the guy pays. It's like a social norm. Granted not everyone has to follow this. I feel guys pay for the first few and if the dating becomes regular the two of you can split the bill or even take turns paying.

I don't thinks a catch 22. I think it's the way it should be. The guy does the asking and, at least the first date, should pay. After that, it can be split if you both agree on it.
