I frequently get asked out even though I'm a man and my only gripe about it is that the women never offer to pay.

I'm just saying, if a bunch of women ask me out, and they still expect me to pay then I'm going to go broke.

That's not cool ladies, if you ask a man out, YOU SHOULD OFFER TO PAY!

In my view, it's pretty rude to ask someone out and then expect them to pay. That goes for either gender.

well, are you too cheap to do the asking yourself? :-D

But I do agree with you, whoever asks, pays. I've never asked, so I've never paid, the joys of being female!

Is she putting out at the end of the date?.

Being honest. On the first date, no. If I ask, then yes I pay. If it's a dinner and movie or dinner and concert date. I'll pay for either. Some times men are persistent on paying, so I'll offer to leave the tip.

This may point to you as well.

Are these self centered women you're dating?

My early years, yes I would sit back, when the check came.

Ideally the one who ask should pay but at the end of day. If she asks but doesn't pay I'd consider that more amusing than rude since I consider it somewhat trivial. I can afford it and would rather be out with a woman having a good time than at home counting my nickels.

Would you say that to women who complain because men don't pay for their dinners/wine, entertainment, etc.

If women don’t do the asking then I wonder who’s cheap. Yes, I have to agree, being a female has all kinds of perks when it comes to dating.

Which is totally acceptable for women to do. Even though it is not something I support I find it completely normal when I am in a western country.
