I wrote a piece a while back asserting that dating is more expensive for women than it is for men, but now I want to touch on why a man should ALWAYS pay.Personally, I don’t think a woman should EVER have to pay for a date.People may question why a woman would equate a man paying for a date to her worth.Well, I’m definitely worth more than a couple of dinners & a movie so self-worth is not the issue.Particularly when we are just dating & not yet in a relationship.
You can, however, get to a place where while you acknowledge where they and you fell short in significant ways, you can see what you contributed to each other’s lives.Simply being someone's girlfriend is actually pretty uncommon.Nowadays, we have dating without the label, talking (whatever that means), friends with benefits, BAE and more.If I’m in a relationship then I would chip in because at that stage, I can begin to “invest” in him because he has proven his interest & has already hooked me at that point.Some argue that so many African American women are single because we are “stuck in our ways”.

Marie moved to Chicago because she was seriously dating Greg, who lived there. Many people rearrange their lives for a relationship that doesn’t work out. It’s a Discovery Process Few people marry the first person they date seriously.
