I've heard lots of people argue that if we want equality, then women need to stop wanting/expecting men to pay for dates. What are your thoughts?

      Some women don't like me saying this but I don't think men should be expected to pay for every date. But... if he asks her out for dinner on the first date he should definitely pay. He doesn't know her financial status and could choose a restaurant outside her budget range.


      I always advise men and women to go for coffee or a walk, the first time they meet up. There is less pressure and no one should be spending a lot of money early on because you don't even know if you like them yet!  

      If a woman asks someone out on a date then I think she should expect to pay for them. It doesn't have to be an expensive date. It's the millennium and we have to accept that some things are changing in dating scenarios.
