I seriously don’t understand why if someone invites you out to a date, regardless of gender or whatever, you automatically have to pay half or whatever. Like yeah, you’re paying all of it. Because you asked me to come. I pay when I’ve planned a day out with friends or family that I properly know/love. I’m not going to fork out a lot of money when I don’t like eating out anyway and it’s probably not even going to be a place I like or not. You invited me and you’re desperate for my company with you so you’re paying or I’m not coming. It’s that simple lol.
I don’t understand in all the “why don’t the women split the bill, why do the men always pay” (total generalised) bullshit argument, it’s never considered that if a guy invities a girl out, then yeah he should assume he’s paying unless she offers otherwise. Because I/she wouldn’t be going if it weren’t for the date and the alternative is a no. And I would do the same whether it was a date or not and I absolutely wanted someone to be somewhere with me and they were deliberating, if they don’t want to pay and I still want them but they’d like to come, then hell fucking yeah, I’m paying and I’m not going to pressure them.
