But if the woman pays for dinner, then whether or not they have sex is no longer simple barter and the game instantly gets more complex. My girlfriend Rachel is dating a guy who loves when she picks up the check, which she does slightly more than half the time since she earns slightly more money than he does -- except when they're out in a group, in which case she "lets" him pay but then pays him back later.

And partly because the rules are still amorphous even for the women who are initiating change.
