With changing times, dating rules are also being re-written. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for a woman to ask a guy out. It also seems that when it comes to dating, women just love it. A British study has found women to be taking the lead when it comes to finding love, with one-fourth of them dating three or more men at the same time.
Research shows that the average single female is regularly seeing at least two prospective partners at one time, and they date five men a year, the Daily Express reported. Also, women are willing to spend money on paying the bills too.
According to the study, carried out by the restaurant chain TGI Friday, it’s only 18% of women that thought the man should pay during the date. Half of the male respondents agreed to that, saying that woman should either contribute or go halves.
Nearly a third of females said that traditional dating rules hardly apply anymore, with a quarter having asked a man out rather than waiting for the guy to make a move.
Also, one in four in a relationship would consider proposing, with nine in 10 men wanting their girlfriend to do so, according to the study. “With a growing number of economically independent woman who take their own decision, dating rules will change further in terms of equality,” says psychiatrist Dr Avdesh Sharma.
