    Is it wrong for a man to pay now?

    That's not what I meant. I just think it's double standards. Women say they want equality but it's quite obvious on this show anyway that there is an expectation that the men will pick up the tab. If women want to be treated equally why not offer to split the bill?

    No flaming but this reminded me of something.

    When women are assertive in the workplace and request/demand a pay rise etc etc like a male I do notice there is a perception that the woman is 'b!tchy' and 'aggressive' yet males are just encouraged for pushing for what they deserve.

    So I suppose my thoughts are running along the lines of are women who are trying to be assertive in their careers actually being 'aggressive' etc or is it just the perception we have because we are not used to a woman behaving (not sure if thats quite the word I am after) this way?

    Well it worked for me. I have what I want because I went and got it and didn't take no for an answer. Studied and worked in male dominated fields, paid the same if not more than my male counterparts. I'm not a genius or anyone special, just a normal person.

    So just because it didn't happen to you that means it doesn't exist?

    I guess for some people it's culture and tradition especially on a first date. It's a sign of respect. Even in my group of friends the men pay because to them it's seen as an embarrassment if a woman pays. Its kinda hard to explain.

    I didn't say you said that.

    Are you agreeing that there is a disparity?

    I would suspect the show, like many reality shows is quite contrived and not in fact that reflective of reality.

    No offense but I don't see why this is considered a "tradition" or sign of respect. Yet if someone were to say it is "tradition" for the man to work and woman be at home then that's gender inequality.
