Just a little bit of social commentary in this one. I always find it funny how even the most educated and empowered women often force themselves into restrictive concepts of femininity when they feel that society demands it. And what better time to restrict yourself than on a date?

‘Going Dutch’, for those of you who aren’t native English speakers, is a figure of speech meaning a couple will split the cost of the bill in half. It’s one of those ‘politically incorrect’ terms: a rather blatant poke at the spectacular cheapness of the Dutch, which is second only to the spectacular cheapness of the Scots.
