Quick question : People always complain about gender equality at work but unanimously agree guy should pay for the date (at least first few), why's that still prevalent?

Lol, right. It's a "statistic" that "people" "unanimously" agree.

Pretty sure I'm a person, and I don't agree. So "unanimously" is wrong. Plenty of people split checks or just don't care who pays,—and I've never once been called "beta" or whatever weird-ass Red Pill shit you're so scared of.

The female side of the argument could be that it is also expected that women wear trendier clothes and make up and jewelry and so on whereas men don't have to spend as much money on "being pretty".

I am a dude and I would be turned off if a girl did not offer to split the bill. I also don't really care if they are "being pretty" or whatever. So I don't really subscribe to any of this, though I get where you're coming from

This is long as hell. Men should always pay, and women should always at least do the little fake wallet reach.

Ok let me add this - it is almost always expected that guy should ask the girl out. Otherwise he's labeled as beta and what not. And also guy is expected to propose yada yada. I can go on.

Whoever said women have to spend more on makeup etc so that balances out guys paying for everything: wearing makeup is totally your choice to attract a more attractive mate. Just accept your place on the attractiveness totem pole and continue with your day. And split dinner.

In other words, would a man be uninterested in a woman who’s living with her ex (but of course being appropriate after the breakup)?

Was at a party with my gf this past weekend and ran into a girl I was intimate with 2 years ago. My best friend’s gf tells me separately that other ladies at the party are “shocked” that I haven’t told my gf about this other girl, (occurred before I started dating / knew my gf). Should I tell my gf? Also should I talk to my buddy’s gf as she was the only one who knew I hadn’t told my gf about my past (suspect her to talk behind my back). Just in a sticky situation.

Curious to hear from people with med school debt: what is the best way to finance med school? Is taking on student debt a big deal if you get a high-paying job after school? The reason I ask: I paid for my son's BS degree (including housing and meal plans), and he's entering med school soon. He has asked if I will pay anything towards his support in med school. But he worked all through his undergrad degree and saved sine I was paying for the major expenses, so I kind of feel like this is his thing to take on now. AITA?

I have stepped into December with total apathy towards work. Just came back from vacation so I don’t feel like I need to rest. Just no desire at all to do anything and I can’t find the motivation. I am also in the process of looking for other job opportunities but nothing seems to excite me. Has anyone ever felt the same way? Maybe it’s just a period that will pass on its own?
Any advice will be appreciated🙏
