You ever notice it's the same 2 or 3 guys on here always trolling about being cheap and so vehemently against overweight women and women with kids?? And they are on city-data forum in the middle of the night posting nonsense?

And then you wonder why they are single?

I know. And that's why I'm happy that I make more money than most women and I couldn't care less about them whining about equal pay.

Ya know, because some things in life just aren't fair.

Do you see how this double standard works? This forum is full of them.

Lots of things in life aren't fair. You don't have to sympathize with women whining about equal pay. Doesn't bother me.

No, I'm not resentful. Men want what they want, and I can choose not to date them.

So - you think that dating should be regulated by the government? Because that is what you seem to be upset about - that most women believe that an employer should be required to pay a woman the same amount that they are paying a man for the same exact job. Do you think the government should then set up a payment plan for dates based on how much each person makes? Should they also set up a sex plan so that women are required to have sex with men based on the number of dates that they have been on and that men are required to not ask about the number of sexual partners a woman has had? Should the government get involved and make it so that premarital sex is illegal?

Romance is not based on who can vote and workplace equality. If you want to have a relationship where everything is totally equal and you keep track of each dollar and cent because women can vote and want equal pay so now every aspect of life has to be equal - that's fine. You can find women that agree with you. But you are probably not going to find as many women if you have a grudge against them in the first place simply because they want to be seen as equal citizens under the law which has nothing to do with how they want to be seen as a date, a mother, a wife, a daughter, or a friend. I mean, do you look at how the government treats you and let that dictate how you want to be treated in your love life? Oh, but white men have always been able to vote, have always been paid for their work, have always been able to own land, run for office, own a business, etc. so I guess it's not really the same thing.

Women want the same opportunities as men. They want equal pay as men. But they also want to be taken care of by men.

With all the double-standards that exist, it's very easy to not empathize with their causes.

I have no idea where you're drawing these conclusions from. I'm just saying that some women seem to be all about upholding double-standards. Cater to me, take care of me, but oh yeah, make me as well off or better off than men.

Unless women want to be taken care of by their bosses - then you are talking apples and oranges.

I'm talking about women who still feel like they're entitled to having things paid for them by men (who are not their bosses).

Some of them want everything else to be equal in life, but they think that men should also be willing to take care of them on dates, in relationships, etc. They want their cake and eat it, too.

Once again, apples and oranges. A woman wanting equal pay for the SAME JOB doesn't have anything to do with how she wants to conduct her romantic life. I suggest you ask all your dates how much they make, ask them if they want equal pay for the same job, and then give them a chart showing them how much of the date they have to pay based on their income. Because dates are all about how women want to be treated by the government and now how two people are compatible together.

Doesn't make sense to me. One is purely a social convention. The other is a matter of legal rights. Two completely different arenas and fundamentally different issues. There are some issues where they (the social and legal) intersect (aka civil marriage), but dating is not one of them.
