In my experience, the guys I've dated get mad when I try to pay for things, so I've mostly given up on pulling out my wallet after the first date. Although, on that first date I will put up a bit of a fight before giving in. I know a lot of women my age who rely on their boyfriends to help pay their rent, buy them shoes, etc. But I've never met one girl who actively tries to pay for things. Focus: Discuss the video. Guys: Do you insist on paying for things or is the financial responsibility of having a girlfriend annoying? Girls: Is the fact that a guy doesn't pay for dinner a deal-breaker or do you prefer to pay your own way? Do you feel pressured to let the guy pay?
