Let's face it; the dating world is full of stupid rules and practices that originated a long time ago, when the world was a different place. These customs and traditions started during a time when men were taught to be the soldiers and/or the worker of the family, while women were raised to think that their sole purpose in life should be to become a stay-at-home mom/housewife who was only a very small step above being nothing but property to her husband.
Times have changed however. None of these things are the case anymore, so why do we have to keep on observing these dating rituals and customs that are a throwback to a time when people thought the world was flat? I've asked a lot of people this question, and while most men seem to agree with me, most women seem to want to keep things the way they always have been. And when I ask them why, their only answer is "because that's just the way things are" or "because it's tradition". Well, guess what. Those aren't valid answers.
I'm talking about things such as:
The man must be the one to approach the woman
The man must be the one to ask the woman out
The man must provide transportation
The man must pay for everything
There's a whole lot more, too.
Times change, people evolve, and the reasons behind these stupid rules no longer apply in today's society. So why can't we adapt? Why aren't we allowed to change with the times?

It's not a rule it the evolution of dating and finding true love love. When You sit down with a couple that has been married for years and are still happy with their relationship they will give you the run down of how it all came into play. Woman are the pursuers, men are to pursue a woman. If a woman comes on to a man and began to take the role of paying for everything and being the provider, then confusion in the relationship begans. Lets be for real because I've heard it all before, "a man wants a woman who is independent." Then he flips it and says an independent woman don't need a man and he's back in the arms of a NEEDY woman.
It's in our DNA's to behave this way, no matter how we think we want things to change the more they stay the same.
Men that feel that the laws should change are looking for a easy way out. They are looking to switch the roles, just to get a break. A hardworking man is a turn on, and a woman that stands beside him every step of the way is a strong individual.
What needs to change is these silly little dating games. Dating should not be so complicated. Check out my question: "Why the Games."
