Damon Paull update:

๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘ Who should pay for the FIRST date? Things have changed since I was single…๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ“†

We used to talk about clubs, DJ’s and after party activities… Several friends and I were discussing “dating trends”, as the topic came up after the subject of kids, public schools, recent health scares.

โ˜ข๏ธAnd this quickly became an explosive topic! Keep in mind, last time I was single, you couldn’t “swipe” anything. So I may be wearing outdated glasses.

Because this is actually a financial issue and I LOVE finance, I dug into some data and found this:

โ‡๏ธMost Americans, 72%, say a man should pay for the first date, according to a recent NerdWallet survey. (CNBC)

โ‡๏ธWhoever pays, the average person pays $77 for a first date (LendingTree).

So now I’m asking my professional family! Here are some highlights of this weekend’s discussion:

๐Ÿคด๐ŸฝDo you think the man should still automatically pay because there is still a gender pay gap?

๐ŸฉปWomen have equal rights and know what they want, they should pay first.

๐ŸŽŠI guess there’s a European solution that’s stress-free, & the bill is split 50-50 without money being a focal point?
