Men Still Expected To Pay For Dating Expenses


The women’s movement has made great strides in promoting gender equality but when it comes to dating it’s still the guy who is expected to pick up the expenses, even after dating for a while. A new study issued by Chapman College found that while 57% of women offered to help pay, 84% of men and 58% of women say that the man still carries the burden. Some other results of the study do show that some attitudes are changing…a little.

Here are some of the study results.

–Over half (57 percent) of women claim they offer to help pay, but many women (39 percent) confessed they hope men would reject their offers to pay.
–44 percent of women were bothered when men expected women to help pay.
–Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of men believed that women should contribute to dating expenses.
–Nearly half of men (44 percent) said they would stop dating a woman who never pays.
–A large majority of men (76 percent), however, reported feeling guilty accepting women’s money.

The report went on to say that an overwhelming majority of married couples do split the bill when it comes to entertainment expenses. The full report can be found here
