guilty. My Valentine’s Dance date is paying for my ticket and dinner. Isn’t it only
fair that I share the costs? Just because he’s a guy shouldn't mean he has to
cough up a ton of dough, does it?
Bill: Blame the Middle Ages. According to The Book of
Chivalry, Chapter 2, verses 4-6: “... and the lady shall be given dinner, a
show and transportation, and in return need only offer politeness and modest
thanks.” OK, that book is fake, but the idea of romance is very real. It’s cool
that you feel guilty, but don’t. Being a girl has its perks!
Dave: I’m pretty sure Bill’s “book
excerpt” is more 1950s than Middle Ages, but I give you snaps for being an
enlightened girl. While there is long-standing protocol about guys always
footing the bill, there’s nothing wrong with offering to pay. If the dance goes
well and you’d like to go out again, tell him you’ll treat for a second date.
