    What are your thoughts regarding finances/money when you are dating or involved in a relationship.

    Women and men what are your financial expectations when dating.  When you are dating someone do you feel as a man you should pay their bills, pay rent/mortgage, and provide an allowance?  When you enter in a relationship what do expect to pay her bills or provide her with money?
    These questions are just to gauge what men think when it comes to money when dating and in a relationship.

    Dating: "Do you feel as a man you (should) pay their bills, pay rent/mortgage, and provide an allowance?"
    The short answer is (NO!) and the long answer is "Hell No!"
    Unless a man is "Sugar Daddy" or "Benefactor" and has an "arrangement" with a "Sugar Baby" or "Gold Digger". 
    There should be no financial expectations with regard to (her) bills, rent, and mortgage unless they're living together.
    A man is not a human ATM machine.
    Over time it's not unusual for either the man or the woman to help the other out in a long-term relationship. However it should never rise to the level of "expectation" .
    Single means one handles their own finances.

    If he invites me I expect him to pay, not because he is the man, but because he invited. if we just agreed to do something together I expect nothing... in a long term relationship our money goes to a joint account so it is ours. In my case we are both freelancers, money is not always the same every month, and I have no idea what he earned and what I've earned... it is our money. We have a life together,we are "fighting" together, we pay and earn together.

      She said: " financial expectations when (dating)." Should a man pay their bills, pay rent/mortgage, and provide an allowance? She's not just talking about paying for the date. She's not talking about couples living together.
      They're just dating!
