Picking Up The Tab: Is It About Chivalry?

 couple-dating-who-should-payI came across this interesting article this morning. It stated that chivalry does exist nowadays because men still pick up the tab on the first date. It wasn’t exactly the morning news but I pretty much reacted to it.

I am shocked to find that picking up the tab is about chivalry. It has got to be more than just that.

Less Halfies These Days?

A current study shows that less couples go on halfies or fifty-fifty these days. Apparently, more men are picking up the tab most especially on the first date. Based on the study, the percentage of men that actually pick up the tab on the first date is a lot higher than expected. We’re looking at eighty-four percent.

In addition to that, the percentage of women that admitted that men still pick up the tab after the first date is more than half of the total number of respondents in the survey. Out of the seventeen thousand respondents, nine thousand eight hundred sixty of the women admitted that men still pick up the tab even during the relationship. That definitely shows that a good number of men are footing the bill these days.

How Men And Women Really Feel About It

Here’s the funny thing. While the numbers are astonishing, forty-four percent of the men actually admitted that they would stop seeing the woman that doesn’t pay at all. And while women actually offer to pay, thirty-nine percent of them SECRETLY wishes that the offer be rejected. I guess that explains why some men and women don’t exactly hit it off after a few dates. But of course, that’s just my opinion.

Here’s the funny thing. While the numbers are astonishing, forty-four percent of the men actually admitted that they would stop seeing the woman that doesn’t pay at all.

This Is How I Feel About It

While it’s a comforting thought that more and more men are footing the bill these days, there are two things to think about. My first thought is this. Should men end up paying the bill even if it was the woman that had asked him out? Related read: Why successful men use the highly popular Tao Of Badass dating ebook.

While the study has some interesting findings, I’d first want to know who asked whom out. Let’s face it, nowadays, some women ask guys out. I have done it a couple of times. And during those times, I prefer to pay the bill.

So if I asked the guy out, I would definitely pay for the bill. For me, it’s the right thing to do. But I definitely WOULDN’T think that chivalry is dead simply because the guy that I had asked out didn’t pay for the bill.

Is picking up the tab about chivalry? If I had ended up paying for the tab, would that disqualify my date as a knight in shining armor?

This takes me to my next thought. Is picking up the tab about chivalry? If I had ended up paying for the tab, would that disqualify my date as a knight in shining armor? It’s really a trick question but I honestly think that it takes more than just paying the bill to conclude that chivalry is not dead.

What do you think? Do you think chivalry is not dead?

  1. There’s a whole chapter in the book that looks into gender roles. If men understood not only their gender roles but also the gender roles of the women, then chivalry will never die.

  3. For me it’s simple. If I don’t like my date, I make sure I pay. That way, I won’t have to see or even talk to him again. I owe him nothing.

  4. I agree with you. If I ask a guy out, it’s automatic that I pay. If he doesn’t accept it, I force my way to doing it. It’s just the way it is for me.

  5. Chivalry is such a broad word that it can’t be summarized into a mere action of paying the tab. Some guys always pick up the tab but that doesn’t mean they’re such wonderful guys. Honestly, some of them turn out to be jerks.
