$20 for two people to eat is not expensive. Chivalry and equality are not opposites. If he asked her out, it's reasonable for her to expect him to pay unless he said otherwise. It would be reversed if she asked him out. First date != bf. This is why you date someone a few times before you commit to a relationship.

Look, it doesn't say anyone starved, and it doesn't say that it was a first date. The one thing it says for sure is that this guy is fucking poor.

1, Chivalry is by definition the behavior of horsemen. It was a system invented by the Celts to protect "innocents" from the horrors of war. Nothing less. Nothing more.

18- I seriously doubt any guy would expect a girl to pay just because she asked him out. He might be more likely to expect to go Dutch though. And this is not so bad. It was only $20.

I think it's just the fact that they went on a first date and all he brought were food stamps and $5. had this been predetermined then I don't think it would have been a problem. However, it sounds like it was a surprise. and yeah I'd be pissed too.

It didn't actually say it was a first date. It said he was a new boyfriend, but nothing about it being a "first." Maybe next time, he'll be more prepared. if not, that crap was planned. lol

The "food stamp" comment was most likely a joke. I work at a bar and had people joke and ask if I accept "Home Depot" credit cards. Unless, the OP's boyfriend is stupid and doesn't know that they don't already but he seems pretty smart to me. $20 doesn't seem like a lot for dinning out. Now you know to always carry cash on you.(:

Maybe, Q, but maybe not. I worked in a "family style" restaurant-- aka fried chicken and green beans, buffet-style-- and we had a lot of customers ask that question seriously. I learned quickly to not laugh at the question. = Of course, our customer base was also the type to complain about the "seriously bad lemons" on the salad bar. They were actually unpeeled kiwi fruit.

wow. that is just pitiful. If he didn't have any money, say it before hand. asking a waiter if they take food stamps???? WTF? Was it a Dennys in Kentucky? you deserve better I hope. if not,...fyl

Yep. Chivalry may be dead, but people should hopefully still have manners. If you invite someone to dinner, then you should either pick up the tab or explain to the person that you can't BEFOREHAND and ask if it's okay if they pay.

here in the states very low income families get government aid in order to buy food it Used to be in the form of coupons similar to a checkbook however now they give you a "credit card" that is refilled every month so I personally doubt the truthfulness of this fml anyway

I honestly think the entire foodstamp thing is BS. Did you know you can take your card to an ATM and exchange it for cash? I literally watched a guy withdraw money from the ATM, and buy a carton of smokes with it. If they're going to be giving food to the hungry, at least make it more strict. I'm not sure the government planned to be paying for people's addictions too.

46. The food stamps also gives you around 50-60 dollars in which you can withdrawal and buy other essentials like shampoo, toothpaste etc.. and stop being such a conservative..

food stamps are for food, you can't get cash from them, but if you have cash assistance that goes on the same card, but is not fs, then you can take cash from it...but not from fs.

46 the food stamps also give you around 40-50$ that you can withdrawal to buy other essentials such as shampoo, toothpaste, towels etc .... Stop being such a conservative.

73......or for the peolpe who could care less about said essentials, a carton of smokes, a case of beer, or a $50 sack might be a planned purchase. The point is, an amount of government aid is given for "other" purchases which have no way of being tracked. And guess whose money that was to start with? Before you slam a conservative, maybe you should think about where that government aid comes from. I'll give you a hint......it isn't from Obama's personal bank account.

I used to think government aid was great, till i found out about that extra money. This girl I know gets welfare with her boyfriend, and they both spend it on pot, cigs, and beer while her mom takes care of the kids because she doesn't wanna lose her grandkids. I know this isn't always the case, but it really makes you wonder if the government isn't strict enough. And I'm not even conservative. I just don't like druggies getting money that could go to our schools.

Danny, I agree that it's too easily abused; it definitely needs an overhaul. I know a girl who would drive her ex-NFL-player boyfriend's Escalade (when they were new and hip) to the grocery shore, with her brand-new fake tits smashed into designer clothes, to buy diapers and groceries with food stamps. Totally ridiculous. That said, I've also known people who genuinely needed it, and used as little as possible for only necessities. There are lots of ways to ensure the money is being spent on necessities without eliminating the entire system.

I thought 73 called me conservative because I said : cheap cheap the bird says! But anyways, if guys think she should not complaint about paying her half, for that reason he should have paid at least his half!

you can get cash back on food stamps, actually. i work at a grocery store and we have ebt and ebt cash benefits, which you can take any mount up to 50$ out, and normally people have erounf 200$ in their account. but theyre also the ones who will buy cigarettes and liquor on a separate transaction. food stamps is bull and 90% of piece recieving it are full of bull too.

Actually the "cards" have money in side it. It has a Cash and food cash balance so you can go to an atm and wip out cash since this cash is given to pay for bills. Still some body shouldnt buy smokes with it.

My mom used to get food stamps because she was between jobs, and it actually is very helpful... if we didn't have it then we probably wouldn't have gotten food, and we didn't get any "extra money" or anything
