The problem is, it sets up a pattern of expectation. If you come in throwing your money around, that will be the expectation moving forward. I was on a tour last week, it was a bachelorette party. One of the girls was talking about how her boyfriend recently bought her expensive diamond earrings. Was she happy? No, she was pissed off that it wasn’t an engagement ring. I’ve got hundreds of similar stories.

If woman want to be special, then they can't be equal.
“I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't.” Marilyn Monroe

Again, you all are going after the wrong people. You dudes seem like you have issues of entitlement and also date women with issues of entitlement. Everyone isn't the same. I've gone on dates with women that were very thankful about me buying them a drink or coffee or whatever and even said "I'll get the next round" or "I'll get drinks next time". And they do (even if I do the right thing and try not to let them). And I thank them back. Be nice and respectful & people are nice & respectful back.
And if they aren't, don't bother. But don't be an ass about it. Just don't go down that path.
It feels good to give to someone that truly appreciates it, and then to receive. In every aspect of this whole dating/relationship/love/marriage scene the give/take is the best part about it. Again, it really seems like you all are hung up on the wrong type of people.
