This Is The Real Reason Why He Keeps Calling Off Your Dates
Hardly a few things feel as special as going out with someone whose company we wish we had 24/7. While providing an opportunity to know them better, it also gives us a much-needed respite from the monotonous home-work life.
The joy in selecting the perfect outfit and getting all decked up can’t be ignored. However, all of that euphoria comes crashing down if our phone pings with the text reading –

According to this survey, many men feel that they are the one responsible for the whole of the bill; 54 percent said that they offer to disburse the entire amount. On the other hand, women believed that payment for the bill defaults to the one who initiates the date. When men aren’t financially capable of taking care of the funds, they feel it’s safer to opt-out, rather than expect that their women would be desirous of splitting the cost or pay for all of it.

This clearly indicates that most of the time it is the guy on whom the burden of the bill falls.
