Is chivalry dead? Not according to many women. Recent surveys have shown that several still expect their male date to pick up the check at the end of a meal as a matter of proper etiquette and decorum. Writing an opinion article on SHESAID, Peta Serras says expecting a bill to be split is a bad omen. “Splitting the bill on dates sets the precedent for a relationship, one where everything is straight down the middle. And where does that end? Does that mean we should keep monthly spreadsheets and documents when we give sexual favors and how much we give emotionally to ensure we’re even every month?”
There is a debate over whether you can call yourself a feminist (is that term still in vogue) and expect a date to pay for dinner. Serras says, “I believe you can still consider yourself a feminist and accept a nice meal from someone. It’s when someone uses that term as an excuse to be stingy with their funds that isn’t cool with me.” She says whoever asks for the date should be paying the bill. Others maintain that chivalry is not dead and regardless of who asks for the date the male should pay.

Pillow Talk is Becoming Obsolete
Too many of us have given up communicating with our partners in bed and instead are cultivating a loving and caring relationship with our cell phones. Nearly three in four adults bring their phone to bed with them. More than a third say their sex life suffered as a result of smart phones in the bedroom. A quarter of respondents admit the last thing they see before closing their eyes at night is their phone, not their partner.
