They might read it, but will they comprehend or just ignore it because then they'd have nothing to complain about?

I know this topic isn't related to that silly advice Steve Harvey gave women?

I agree. And, for all the talk about women making demands, there are still a lot of men who wouldn't dream of letting a woman pay on a first date. I've seen guys get offended by the offer. So if these guys who don't want to pay want to get angry with someone, it's not the women they should have a beef with, it's the generous guys. A woman who expects to get asked out and treated is passive, but the guy who asks her out and treats her is active, and he's the one with the power in the matter.

Yes, or she. He is just the default pronoun.

For some men it is bragging rights. Ive heard a lot of men over the years bragging to other men about the expensive restaraunt, etc. they took their date and how they spent a lot of money.

Not like these days where some brag about how little they spent to get laid.

No wonder so many guys are having problems finding a woman and come here to cry about it.
Exactly. This whole concept is ridiculous.

Can't blame guys these days for smartening up to the business.

No, not if getting laid is your goal. No need to spend your hard earned money on a taco and a beer to get the goodies.

This is ridiculous. If a man expects to get some because he paid for dinner, then he's a jerk. If a woman withholds sex to see how many free dinners or presents or whatever she can get from a man, then she's a gold digger. I've never heard of the 90 day rule...that's stupid. There's nothing wrong with waiting until you feel comfortable with a guy...for some people that's the 3rd date, others maybe the 30th date. There's no right or wrong answer.
