I don't know where you live, but a cup of coffee here is 3 something. Double that and it's $6. Renting a pool table is pretty pricey too with about $20. And eating out with friends? If they were going to a restaurant, that's another $30 right there. Total is about $60.

Whose's cheap now? Thought so

And fyi, no man would want to date you either
UUuuuu, 6 bucks for coffee!!! 20 bucks for pool!
Look if the dude doesn't have money, that's fine. My husband also didn't roll in in a BMW when we started dating.
My comments come from the general idea I get from this thread, from all the comments that men make here (like she should be paying for the fourth date). Like, are you serious?
"At least start showing they are willing to pay" is not what was originally said here.

Another pile of crap, sorry.
If a woman wants a nice date, she is princess who only wants wants wants...
Well, that reminds me why I chose an older man for my husband. Haven't dated anyone your age my friend, since 18. Now, I remember why.

Not me. Never said that she had to pay. Just that a date didn't have to cost a lot of money to be worthwhile.

I remember meeting my last steady girlfriend--we sat at her place and talked for 12 hours!

I understand women wants to feel treated nicely, and feel appreciated and cared for. But men want that too. You seem to think that only women deserve to be taken out and be treated with nice dinners. What are women supposed to do to make their men feel appreciated and cared for? After the man has taken her out 4 times, it's about time the woman does something in return. If not, I'm not cos its a big red flag, cos she's all me me me, take take take. I want to feel wanted as well.

And FYI, Ive said it many times, there is NO rule book in dating. You seem to be taking this very personal.

Many men are willing to fork out the money in the beginning on dates, in hopes to get some in return. If it doesn't happen after awhile they move on to a willing broad.

How does that go?

"I'll shine up my old brown shoes, put on a brand new shirt
Get in a perfect world, if you say, that you love me..."

Maybe you got to tell him you love him first.

If I wanted a quick shag, I could get that instantly without paying a penny - all I gotta do is chat up random slags at the nearest pub/bar. No problems. That is not the issue at hand here.

But if Im investing time and money into a woman I like then I hope she reciprocate the effort that I make to make her feel good and treating her with nice dinners etc.?

I mean, can you women at least see where men are coming from in regards to this?

Yes I do..."Just a Spot of tea?" gets costly after awhile.
