Do some girls not offer to pay on dates because they think the guy earns more?

    Just wanted to ask a question to the general population:

    Are there some girls out there who don't offer to pay on dates if they think the guy earns more than they do? I'm having trouble distinguishing between that and just girls who kind of expect to be treated.

    The thing is that I work in finance which is stereotyped as being a role that makes you rich (and to slightly exploit that aura, I've featured it in my dating profiles) however I'm very far from buying Porsches with my bonus or anything like that.

    However in that period I've kind of noticed that girls who do jobs that generally pay less than finance (not that a salary comparison ever comes up in conversation or anything like that) rarely if ever offer to pay. On the other hand a few lawyers I've dated (i.e also ones who earn a good salary) always insist on paying their share and do.

    Am I just letting myself be taken advantage of? I don't mind paying for dates and even more than she does but it is not a cheap activity and I would like them to contribute too if they are earning money of their own.

    Wow-never thought of that as a girl...but I always insists on paying halfsies on a date-or sometimes if my meal costs more-than I would defo pay for it...I know some girls dont because of the normal "guy pays on date" stereotype...
