“For almost every other date that we go on, he will suggest that we split the cost, which is something that I can’t stand, because, why does he have to be so stingy lol.”
▼According to her, Man pays for dates is considered of chivalry, even though the woman is well off.

▼Is he a problematic boyfriend or not?
“But i still find it very insincere when he asks me to contribute and pay. How can I make him understand my position, or is he a lost case?”
▼She also said that she pays according to what she eats. Furthermore in their relationship, he never bought gifts for her.
“Whenever I refuse to pay, he will tell me that it is “my suggestion to go to such an expensive restaurant” and that i “chose the more expensive dish” and all. Besides, he has never bought me any gifts like handbags or jewelry, so I feel that it is only right that he treats me.”
