Well i work really hard to earn what I make. When I go on dates it's usually expected that I'd pay the first bill. Sometimes women insist but I know I should pay so I do. Some of them tell me that they'll pay for wherever we go afterwards like a bakery etc. But the amount send us wildly different. Let's say the bill for drinks and some food is 200 dollars and the bill for a souffle and coffee is 20 dollars.

Now I have to foot the larger bill. How do I stop feeling butthurt? Should I just chalk it upto "it's just cost of the game I am choosing to play" ?
