Money Talks, or Does It?

Money Talks, or Does It?

Recently, I read an article discussing whether or not gender equality had changed the rules on who should pay on a date. Like the author, I also grew up thinking that when I was older and dating, the man would automatically pay for the first date, and probably any future dates. It was his responsibility assigned to him by gender, right?

You know what? I went back to that same article several times, trying to figure out how to write a succinct and sensible response... but I think you've summed it up nicely. Thank you.

Who should pay for a date has never been an issue for me: whichever of us has the money and picked the restaurant, that person pays... or we split it. Whichever works at that moment. It's never been a problem and never caused so much as a ripple in my consciousness. In the end, it's a mutual agreement to go out together - not one person buying another person's time.
