Who Pays on a First Date?

The “best friend” analogy is really good. I never really got the whole “men always pay” thing, but that analogy really puts into perspective why it’s so unfair.

I’d imagine the men always paying comes from not long ago when women basically didn’t work so didn’t earn or have money of their own. Sort of went without saying that the man would be expected to pay for anything. Things have changed quite a bit though.
