Should women offer to pay?

I received an email from a guy who is dating someone older than he is. He pursued her in the beginning and didn’t take issue with paying. Now that they are in an exclusive relationship, he expected her to offer to reciprocate more.

Since she supposedly makes more money then he does (he doesn’t know for sure), he wonders if not offering to pay is a sign of selfishness. He is apprehensive about bringing the topic up because he doesn’t want to come across as cheap. How should he handle it?

Do you think that women should offer to pay more often? Is it something men are expecting us to do in the early stages of dating?

When there is a difference in income, how do you navigate dating so that it is balanced and fair?

@ For Real, my son is one of those who know no limits and that if he can believe it he can achieve it…so he always reaches for the stars, always. He had a setback last week and I thought about this quote and how it is better to give it all and fail than to never know victory OR defeat. I like it too.

Broad probably doesn’t bother a lot of women. Since it has such a negative connotation to it, it bothers me. Women weren’t respected yesteryear and calling a woman a broad was akin to calling a woman a heifer (IMO)!

How about “dame”? You don’t hear that one anymore, except in old movies or as an English title (Dame Judi Dench).

ITL – My g/m used to used that phrase in reference to someone who looked like they just jumped out of bed and hit the door, not meeting with water, no soap, no toothbrush, nothing.
