xxcdxx Posted July 29, 2008 Share Posted July 29, 2008 I've been dating this guy for 3 months now, and everything is going great. So far, he has paid for everything we have done together, but yesterday, he suggested I pay for coffee. I am a very traditional person, and was blown away at his suggestion. Coffee is not very expensive (I know, so why couldn't I just get it...?) He ended up paying for it and a movie after, but I felt a little guilty... We got into a pretty big discussion about money, and he said he doesn't mind paying for most things, but would like if I could help out every now and then. To me, it's not about the money...it's the principle of the idea. I just don't feel that a true gentleman should let the girl pay for anything. This wouldn't be such a big deal except that I just got out of a 4 year relationship where he paid for literally every single thing for me. Granted, he was more well-off and able to do that, but I'm not used to paying for anything. I understand it's not the 50s and women always complain about how they're independent (so logically can pay for themselves), but like I said, I'm very traditional and expect a chivalrous man. Am I being completely out of line and ridiculous? If so, how often and to what extent should I pick up the bill? Link to comment
