Or you could just play games. Even cheaper and they don’t take half your shit when you move on :D
PREEEAAAACHHH!

Haha...

I'm part of the fortunate hitched folk that married up, and luckily my passions for CUD, gaming etc have not been dulled.
Wifey is pregnant now though, so I'd be lying if I said I wasn't holding my breath to see how things go..... (already had to get rid of my 40" PS4 dedicated screen and old school hifi stack - which was excessive gear to own first off, sure, but still......)

It's definitely about who you dating. If you are only dealing with Tinder hoes then sure you going to pay.

I think if you find someone where you have a common interest you can almost circumvent the awkward first date dinner nonsense.

I met my wife through hockey during varsity days. I was dirt poor as a student but she never expected to be constantly Wined and Dined. Only the most special occasions involved going out to restaurants. I'm really lucky to have someone that is careful with money and doesn't expect lavish gifts.

I didn't have a chance to butter the mom up though. First time I met her was when I drove my very recently started dating girlfriend home after someone spiked her drink during a night out. Was pretty awkward, almost as awkward as having to ask her for a lift back to my car because I had driven the girlfriends vehicle from the club.

I Just recently got married, and I know for sure that I chose the right woman who is not like what you have described. We do everything together and make all decisions together from the smallest thing to the biggest life decisions and especially when it comes to expenses. She is the most loyal,caring,loving and amazing person I have ever met, Best part of all, WE GAME TOGETHER. She is into pcs and studied IT so I guess you can say I hit the jackpot. The only downside is that I'm an Nvidia fan and shes AMD till death hahahaha. So not all woman are as you have described Ngoni, I would spend every last cent on my wife because I know she is worth it. In terms of expenses, man its tough as shit but as long as you support eachother, nothing can go wrong
You, my man, are one of the lucky few.

Petrol cost / meet half way (or on your way home) saving you petrol

food bill - pick a place which is a good deal or or Specials
SPlit the bill or let her pay the tip (50rand is nothing)

do this twice a month with weekend visits (from saturday midday) to free up your gaming time.

this is my method

I think he is approaching it in a financially responsible way. No need to spend according to social norms.

Its the exact same thing with current political ads I believe. Will a billboard sway your vote or is it just there to serve as proof of you having money and not being broke (making yourself more broke in the process)

Somewhere on MyBB someone wrote about only seeing billboards for 4 specific parties and that they reason it is not too far a stretch to believe general populous will believe you and your party don't have money and aren't worth a vote if they don't see you campaigning.

Reading through everything, love doesn't have a price and if these "girls"/succubi care so much about themselves, don't waste your time and wait for a real person.

My final 2c, I have been with my girlfriend for just over 4 and a half years and she is my first girlfriend (started seeing eachother just shy of 21) but my point is don't waste your time, emotions and energy on idiots who don't care about you and alert your views of what a good or true relationship (AKA you settle below your worth after numerous failed relationships because it is easier).

Get married minus the dating. No risk wasting money on the one that didn't work or paying for the fancy instagram photos.
You can't just get married without going through the dating phase lol that would count as abuse and probably rape in the end lol

U dont have to do all the things u mentioned..its just that society has been manipulated into thinking u do...ppl need to stop just doing without thinking. We know females are more impulsive but it seems males are behaving the same as them.

Very true, you can't complain about some behaviour that you don't like yet you allow it to happen and become worse.
