3. Expecting the man to pay
If you consider yourself a strong woman, then be prepared to pay for your own meals. Independence makes you look self-confident. Nowadays men are not as caring as they used to be centuries ago. Be nice and let the date know that you are a well-off lady who is not looking for free dinners. Do not keep waiting on your date to pay for anything. But if the man insists on paying, then let him do it.
