LOL. This is so funny. Maybe because I've lived in France too long, or for any other reason. I have never ever had a positive opinion of a guy who doesn't pay when he asks me out. I will offer to pay if I ask him out. That is the way it goes. And may I just add, a woman is spending a little fortune on high heels and nice dresses. Furthermore, I can say that when I am with a man, he will never need for anything. I mean, why have everyone become so cynical that now a man cannot pamper a woman and a woman cannot pamper a man. P.S Being stingy is very, very "grossier". Just take my hint, gentlemen are hard to find these days. Maybe the same goes with women, but this whole message board is making me...sad.
