FML - The follow-up
bettysue Say more :
The facts are this: 1) I was asked out on a date. 2) I don't care about money. 3) I let him pick the restaurant so that he could keep it in his price range. I even offered to do coffee instead of dinner so that it wasn't a waste of money if we didn't have any real connection anyway. 4) He had been to the restaurant before and ordered the lamb dish, so he knew how much money it was. 5) I ordered water to drink. 6) He didn't even let me look at the menu before he recommended I get the lamb dish, because if I had I would never have selected a meal that was that expensive. 7) He told me to change my order in front of the waiter, and then ordered the lamb for himself. Not wanting to be a total bitch, I didn't complain, but at that point I expected him to pay for dinner. if I couldn't order what I wanted, why the hell should I pay? To all of you losers out there who weren't brought up properly, this is not the way to go about taking a woman on a first date. If you can't understand that, then I feel sorry for you. The whole point of this site is to tell humorous stories about everyday, insignificant things that people can relate to because we've all been there. It was a bad first date, but I think its a funny story. Whatever.

You know I don't understand this double standard, why does the man always have to pay and I'm not saying I don't pay it's just woman always think that the guy HAS to pay. I'm not saying this is you OP but I'm just putting it out there that it really is messed up.

I'm so tired of people whining, "OH IT'S A DOUBLE STANDARD THAT MEN HAVE TO PAY!" No, jackass. If YOU invite someone out on a date, YOU pay. When I take my S/O out on dates, I PAY. When he offers to take me out, HE PAYS. IF YOU GUYS DECIDE TOGETHER, YOU BOTH PAY. WHAT THE FUCK IS SO HARD TO FIGURE OUT ABOUT THIS CONCEPT.

Whether it's a date or not if I invite someone somewhere I pay, coffee, dinner, a movie, anything because I think it's a polite thing to do. If they invite me, they pay unless specified before the event. If we decide to go together we split the bill. I thought that was just normal and polite? He asked her, he pays unless specified.

I think that for the first few dates, the man should pay. After being together, it should go back and forth because nobody needs to spend all of their money and be struggling. But for the first few dates, the woman could always offer (even if it's just to leave the tip or get the popcorn). It has just always been that the man is the "bread winner" and this ideology goes into our society today.

You're right, I shouldn't be so sensitive to other people's opinions. Everyone is entitled to their own thoughts. Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke. The chicken was kabob style on a bed of curry rice with veggies. Pretty good actually. Thanks for asking. Ha!
