Yes, it all costs money. Many women go the extra mile, it would be nice if more men realized and appreciated their efforts.
I agree that most women put in money, time and effort to look good for dates. That was never under dispute.

I dispute her assumption that men don't. I think that she uses this assumption, (that men don't spend money to look good for their dates, and women do), as a justification for her demands that men should pay for dating.

That said, I pick and choose my battles. I treat this as a double standard that I just have to deal with. I just make sure to shamelessly exploit any double standards that work in my favor.

Have I asked you lately how many shoes, purses, pieces of jewelry, other accessories, and toiletries, skin care, and decorative cosmetics you own?

college students have no money and they date more than any other group.
