FML - The follow-up

Today, my date threw a fit, burst into tears, and made a huge scene in the middle of a crowded restaurant, all because I offered to pay. FML

I just now realized that this was posted, and, yes, I do realize that it was more than two months ago. He was actually my friend's old roommate, and she introduced us around a year ago. We didn't really interact that much but I thought that he was nice, so when he asked me out, I decided that I'd at least give him a chance. For the record, it wasn't some elaborate ultra-expensive fancy restaurant, but the meal certainly wasn't cheap. I've been in the habit of offering to pay for my meals for

Hopefully this is the last time. Although I definitely wouldn't throw a fit, there's nothing quite as embarassing as going on a date and not being able to pay. Of course, I'm probably talking more about when you *can't* pay. It's not exactly specified, but if OP's date had money but was upset that OP footed the bill, the it sounds more like he has a issue of pride with the whole thing. It's slightly more logical if he couldn't pay, and/or was under a great deal of stress. Juat have him pay ne

yeah...I don't get it either way...I would've thought to myself, "This gal's a keeper", smirked, and enjoyed the fact I had extra cash in my wallet--after a date. AND if it was a good date, and I liked her, I'd probably start imagining marriage in the future. Sound crazy? You'd be surprised how important being equal partners factors into being married. this gal is a truly progressive and liberated woman. she's not just "sayin' it"...with her tattoos and harlotry. I dun

Here's how you can back at him. Wait until he offers to pay you if he can finish on your face, then throw a fit, burst into tears, and make a huge scene. Foolproof.

@49: why do you think that 45 is being sexist?? because he doesn't want his date to pay for the bill??? i think it is gentlemanlike of him to offer to pay...not saying it should always be like this but sure it's nice to let you date spoil you a little bit ;)

Sexist? How? Because he wants to pay instead of the woman? Uhhh....okay? Not sure how that is sexist. It's not like he is saying "You're a woman and can not pay!". That is more along the lines of sexism. Please go read the definition of sexism first.

I agree. I always offer to pay for the bill or at least my half because that's how my mom raised me and I think it's only fair. It's always nice though when the guy offers to pay instead. I honestly don't see how there is anything wrong with either side of it except for social stigmas.

I stepped out of the box once, and I never found my way back in O.o And there are no more cookies I ate them :D I also pay for all my dates dinner and a movie, and maybe a bar later, if she wants to pitch on booze then that's her decision.

yeah...but I'm pretty sure the sentiment he got from old pops was "NEVER let a WOMAN pay for you [insert: on date, medical bill--EVER]". Though he didn't say it, I'm sure that's how it was wired into his brain. C'mon, I'm fairly sure his dad didn't infer the same if his son was dating a guy...or would he. We can debate that, with the poster's input, of course. He can tell us what kind of man his dad is and how he wanted him to grow up.

Only because of the fit this guy threw i would reccoment op not go back out with him. He sounds unstable. That being said(I know here come the thumbs down) some men really have it instilled in them to provide and pay for things for the women they go out with and love. They are not trying to down grade the woman, but rather just the opposite. whether its right or wrong It makes some guys uncomfortable, like they are not doing their job providing, when the woman pays. For some men it is very
