Who said he asked her out? So if the girl asks a boy to go on a date with her does she has to pay then? This is sexism to be honest. A guy should pay for the girl if he wants to not because a stupid rule says he has to do it. I always pay for the girl I date just because I want to.
14: I agree with you on not bringing the money. You can never be too careful. 24: "...who had asked me out on a date." Also, I said the person asking the other person out is the one who should pay, regardless of gender. But again, it's just my opinion. I don't see any sexism here.
I think a lot of it I culturally too. I would always insist on paying for a date for a girl even if it's the first date but some girls don't want to be paid before, etc. but there's no requirement that it must be paid before for everyone. Boy the rest of that date must have been real awkward
Nobody said he went without her. He may have bought her a ticket later when he realized she didn't have money. Also, women are no longer allowed to assume that men will treat them to anything. I have never treated a girl to anything beyond ~$1 worth of candy. Not that I haven't tried, but I've been refused every time. Sometimes violently. Most of the time I don't even ask, anymore.
I always believe in splitting the costs if the date is mutually desired. If it's clear that one side wants to impress the other, then they should at least insist on paying. YDI for expecting the guy to pay for everything, but FYL for the awkward moment of asking the guy to buy yours too.
I'm still kind of unsure about this whole thing. Did he specifically say it was a "date" or did he just invite OP to a movie? I mean, I ask friends to go to movies with me all the time just because we both want to see it and it feels awkward going to a movie alone. It would be pretty hilarious if he just assumed OP knew they were just going as friends and OP assumed it was a date. Still, you should always have money in case of an emergency. Things can go wrong in a lot of different ways and then you're left high and dry because you didn't bring emergency funds. So, FYL OP, but you still deserve it. Leaving home without money for any reason is just dumb.
#1 in what century do you live in? I don’t expect a guy to pay for me when I get asked out. My now fiancé and I split the costs on our first date (we went for a meal and a movie) and he is a very generous man. However, I didn’t think it was appropriate to get free stuff because he got a date from me. I said yes because I liked him not for the free food. Just imagine if that rule had to apply when you’re a student and/or when you’re broke. Does that mean men are not allowed to date if they’re struggling for money?
Well, you can never be sure. Assuming can get you into trouble, it's very self-centered for the guy to only buy his own ticket, he did ask you out which would give you the impression he would pay. But OP should've brought a bit of cash just in case... That's what I would've done
Even so, you always bring money on a date just in case. The fact that he only bought on ticket means he's an utter boor. The person who asks at a minimum offers to pay, in which case the person who is asked graciously thanks the asker and offers to get drinks (or, if they're going to dinner, to pay next time) or says, no, I got mine, thanks.
#255, I refuse to believe chivalry is dead. It's not, it doesn't just pertain to money. But to other sweet gestures like opening the door for ladies or offering a sweater if she's cold. Just treating the person well is all that should matter. If money's such a huge problem then maybe going out spending money is not the wisest thing to do.
#301 I couldn't agree with you more. Personally I don't see why it should pertain to money. Unless there is a vast discrepancy in what the two people earn then it might be a kind gesture. Expecting someone to pay for you because you are female is so absurd it's embarrassing. I couldn't respect, and therefore wouldn't date again, someone who had that expectation. That said, I like to make sweet gestures or pay for a meal with a credit card on the way to the bathroom without her even knowing. Not because I have to, but because I care enough that I enjoy the gift.
When anybody asks anybody (friend or SO) to join them to a movie or out to eat the person who asked should pay. Unless either person says anything like I only have enough money for me or something like that before hand. Though this conversation should have been had before time, it is perfectly logical for her to assume that he would be paying. But you should always bring emergency money for a taxi or whatever on a first date.
On my first date with my now husband, he paid for movie tickets, I bought a soda and popcorn to split, but he was the one who asked me out. When we were dating, he would offer to pay, I would always offer to help, and he would either accept it or say he had it covered. It didn't matter who paid for the date.
I see this two ways. Yes if he is older (over 18 with a job) the yes I would expect him to pay the first date. But by how u described him as your crush you sound a bit young and maybe he doesn't have much money of his own to throw around on first dates. He may even have had to use his parents money to buy his own ticket. It all depends on the circumstances I guess.
#44 chivalry isn't dead, it just followed wherever being ladylike went. not my quote, but I do agree with it, I hate all the drunk girls complaining about the douches their dating, fun thing is, they mainly complain to other guys. nothing is more amusing than hearing a girl complain about her boyfriend while making out with random dudes.
Nothing's wrong with what you said. You're fortunate to have a guy that still opens doors for you after two years. I see nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, it's been almost 36 years and I still open doors for my wife, too. I still stand outside in the rain and hold the umbrella over her head while she walks to the car at six in the morning, too, even tho I don't have to get up for another hour and a half. I don't think it's chivalry so much as, I just love her very much. And your man loves you.
