Should Women Pay On 1st Date?

Contributor

Ladies, Cosmo did a poll and it appears that 57% of us ladies think it's okay for us to reach into our wallets on the first date? Crazy! Sorry, I think a 57% of us need to allow a man to court us. With recession and pedicures only lasting 2 weeks it's nice to be treated right?

I'm an independent woman and I pay all my bills and everything I want I buy myself but I still don't move a finger when the tab hits the table on the first date. I appreciate when a man courts me and shows me a good time at his expense. If I wanted to go dutch I would hang out with the chicas. On a date? This b---- is getting a free meal and drinks.

What do you ladies think?
