Actually, men with masculine energy are more likely to want to pay and women with feminine energy are more likely to allow the man to pay. There is nothing disgusting about a woman accepting a man's money or vice versa.

Men with more feminine energy would probably do well in a relationship where the woman is primary breadwinner.

There have been plenty of books written about this topic, you might want to read some of them before just dismissing these concepts as disgusting.

You have a STRANGE view of masculine and feminine energy. God help you if you wind up stuck with some ******* as a result of taking his money.

Is “energy” PC double speak for gender roles?
Or is this some crystals and burning incense type of wisdom?

Well I've been happily married for 15 years now so it's not really an issue. Yes, he is the primary breadwinner but that doesn't mean I am "taking his money". Good grief. It's not "his" money, it's "our" money.

I wish I had your problem.

You could surprise him with a gift or pay something in advance (such as tickets)

Yup.

I disagree with all the people who tell you to feel lucky, etc.

That man is insecure and controlling.

This is a red flag.

And people decry that gold diggers aren't real.

Mod cut.

But I do believe in gold diggers. Just that real ones are fairly rare.

I think what we are experiencing in this thread is the far more pervasive "something for nothing" "the atm mistake is my lucky day" "huge corporations can handle the loss of this stolen money" crowd. This encompasses both genders fairly equally.

They are kind of 2 branches of the same tree.

I wouldn't like it or feel comfortable with it, but to each their own.
