This is one of those "no duh" studies, but we'll go ahead and tell you about it anyway. A recent study found that men are willing to pay for a date if she’s pretty, How About We reports. Like you didn't already know that ...

But it kind of works both ways. The more attractive a man is, the more women expect him to pay, the study from University of St. Andrews in Scotland found. AND, people who find themselves attractive think they DESERVE to be treated. The nerve!

Here's the good news: If he DOESN'T offer to pay, well, he might be "just not that into you." Which we kind of already figured, but it's a good rule of thumb. And if SHE doesn't expect you to pay, well, she might not think you're all that. Bottom line: Guys, if you like her, and if you think she likes you, you should probably open up the wallet ...

    i know they would but it's wrong but i seriously think guys should look at a women for the inside of her but obviously that will never happen
  • Shipra 2012/07/10 04:37:48
    Yes (of course)
    Yes most of the time guys behave like gentlemen and buy dinner but I think that ladies should also behave like gentlewomen and should pay at times....I don't know why is it such a big thing that only guys should pay I don't care about paying myself as long as the food is good.
  • XRenX Shipra 2012/07/10 18:10:06 (edited)
    I personally, would love to pay when I could.
  • catbyte21 2012/07/08 16:34:28

    A man is more likely to do ANYTHING for a pretty girl.
  • Nimara 2012/07/08 16:01:21
    Yes (of course)
    He expects something in return though...
  • cnsharp 2012/07/05 01:16:09
    Yes (of course)
    Same reason the hot girl at the bar gets free drinks all night
  • XRenX cnsharp 2012/07/10 18:10:48
    Yes, so they can get her drunk and take advantage of her.
  • cnsharp XRenX 2012/07/10 19:40:16
    That or he's stupid enough to think girls can be bought with alcohol and steak.
  • XRenX cnsharp 2012/07/10 19:42:38 (edited)
    Sadly some can, but hopefully most women have sense, morals and values. Women need to do a better job of teaching men that we are humans of value and not cheap toys, like it or not boys haha.
  • Muriel 2012/07/03 22:10:27
    I goofed again. Marked the wrong box. Pretty is as pretty does, pretty to you may not seem pretty to me. All is relative!

    AND MORE AMONG THE YEARS!!!!-!!!!-!!!!-!!!!

    she's Hot and you want a happy ending don't you????
  • DizziNY 2012/07/02 12:46:25

    Men are shallow.
  • Playerazzi 2012/07/02 08:50:14
    Yes (of course)
    Of course!!

    But if he has a girl who is VERY likely to say "yes" to ah, activities generally carried out later, then methinks he would invest his hard-won cash on that one. It's a better bet.
  • RevBH Playerazzi 2012/07/20 00:19:45
    Then he should just be up-front about it and go to a prostitute. He'll save time and, ultimately, money.
  • Playerazzi RevBH 2012/07/22 09:37:41
    You have a point there.
  • Tcwktw 2012/07/02 08:38:02
    If I'm already dating the person I would feel obligated to pay for both of our's simply because it is gentlemen's edicate to do so. The survey suggests you are already on the date so in my opinion beauty is not connected to paying once actually on the date.
  • XRenX Tcwktw 2012/07/08 15:41:01
    My thoughts exactly. I thought this question was odd.

    Actually, a guy's more likely to have dinner with a pretty girl in the first place, because he wouldn't have asked her out if she looked terrible! Unless she had an awesome personality, that is. But, once on the first date, well, men normally pay for it whether the girl is hot or not. I certainly wouldn't differentiate! You've invited the girl for a meal, so pay for it, dammit!
  • XRenX Jack 2012/07/08 15:45:37
    Same thing was on my mind.

    Especially if he takes her to Applebee's so she can "pay" him back. All classy ladies know this.

    It's even more likely he'll buy her breakfast.
  • shywink 2012/07/01 19:08:16 (edited)
    Yes (of course)
    Of course he would! He's trying to get *layed*. He's not doing it just to be nice. ;)
  • XRenX shywink 2012/07/08 15:49:32
    Which is why dating is crap these days.

    A guy is more likely to buy dinner for a girl that present attributes that he finds enticing: Be it looks, brains, knowledge, power, money or prestige.
  • Elaine 2012/07/01 16:55:34
    Yes (of course)
    To bad there are only two options as other would be a more fair way to give an answer at times. But, men will be men and I'd have to agree that looks are what will override as a means to their decision.
