So This Is the New Way 2 Measure Your Worth?

Is the new thing for females these days measuring their worth (or how much they think a man thinks they're worth) by how much money he spends on her on a date?

So one of my home girls was saying how, "she goes on $300 dates now" and on my twitter this one chick put, "$800 date night" on one of her pictures.

So my question is:

is the amount of money a man spends on you on a date a self-esteem booster for you? Is your self-esteem dependent on the amount of zeros on the check the waitress comes back with?

Do you feel like the ability to get a man's attention via his wallet is a good way to boost self-esteem. Or is it not about self-esteem at all? In the age of the "independent woman" why are a lot of women's sense of worth still dependent on what another man is willing to do for them via his money/accomplishments?

    lol @ the Ether. Wasnt trying to Ether to be honest (I do that in other threads).

    Im seriously asking why, in the year 2012, do many females feel their self-worth can be found on the front of a restaurant receipt & on the black strip on the back of a man's credit card.

    Men make it clear that they measure themselves by their net worth, so it wouldn't surprise me that women are going by how much he's willing to part with that net worth.

    Makes sense.

    But I've seen you say that you couldnt be with a man who didnt spend money on you. So where does it come from? Nature or something? Why is your sense of self based on what another person is willing to do for you that you can do for yourself is I guess what I'm asking specifically.
