I took a young lady for a lunch. I suggested to go for a Persian meal. She told me she would prefer to have a vegetarian one. I did not argue as I wanted to make a good impression. She took me to an expensive restuarant on top floor of a tall building.
We ordered what she wanted to have. After the end, when I saw the bill, I was very surprised. I had to pay around $35 for a bowl of letuce salad for two, a dish of steamed vegetables, a bowl of soup for her, one bottle of small mineral water.
I had to pay although I was not able to eat that rubbish vegetable mixed with fish oil!
We said good bye to each other after the meal.
When I arrived at home, I made three peanut butter & jam sandwichs as I was very hungry.
I felt very bad but did not have much choice.
Have you ever been in this situation?
Why men always has to pay and ladies try to be a smart ****!!
What you would do if you were instead of me?

My sister's been single the last few years, and she always insists on paying her part because she thinks men get the bad end of the deal--and she tells them so. Some men insist on paying anyways, other appreciate the gesture. Usually they split the first outing then take turns out subsequent ones. I think it's only fair, although I'm old fashioned enough to like it when men at least offer first.

Plus it really wasn't nice of her to drag you out to an expensive place and not offer to pay. SHe doesn't know what your financial situation is--it could have made a huge, hurtful dent in your budget. That's just rude.

Unfortunately majority of Persian ladies EXPECT men to pay.

I'll offer to pay for whatever I have on a date even if I'm the one who's asked out, but will accept it if the guy offers to treat. To me it's just that 1) I'm not the sort that likes to be dependent on anyone 2) it's only polite.

However there are people out there (not necessarily always girls) who want and expect others to pay for them or do things for them all the time, or find dates/significant others to be pampered and afford a certain standard of lifestyle. I've never understood how people can have criteria like earn 70k a year, own a car etc when looking for partners.

On the other hand men who insist on paying for everything and buying things for me unnecessarily annoy me when they do it because they want to show that they're rich and capable etc in a pompous way. Those offers I'll always decline and tell them I can afford to pay for stuff myself.

First I asked her, then she agreed.
I was very sure she pay half of the bill as she is a doctor and has a good business.

I guess you are right. I guess some times you would like to see a pretty Persian black curvy eyebrow and a seducing Persian eyes.

You should see one of these Persian girls in order to see what I am trying to say!
