A woman has claimed that men should spend $200 for her "presence" on a first date - which has obviously raised a few eyebrows.

Modern dating can be pretty tough. It seems like every other week there is a new app to mindlessly swipe on, which doesn't seem to be a great way of finding love anymore.

Then there are the dating shows that we can apply to be in, but that's also just become about fame... so how do we find love in this world?

Well, there are still a few avenues to explore, but if you manage to secure a first date with one particular woman, you will need to fork out $200 simply for her time.

The unnamed woman was interviewed by thedesireabletruth on TikTok where she expressed her expectations for first-date expenditures, leaving her friend visibly taken aback.

She stated that she would expect a man to spend a staggering $200 on a first date with her.

But why does she think $200 is a reasonable amount?

The considerable cost of the beauty products she would need to use to prepare for the date. "I feel like if I'm going to get ready and I'm going to use all my products to come out with you, I need like a minimum of $200," she explained.

The interviewer then posed an uncomfortable question, asking what a man would receive in return for this hefty investment. Without hesitation, the woman replied: "My presence."

To bolster her argument, she itemized the costs of her skincare products, listing a moisturizer at $400, eye cream at $300, and serum at another $300, not to mention the expenses for makeup.

Unsurprisingly, her comments triggered a flurry of responses on social media.

One woman said: "I want no money from a guy. All I want is for him to be sincere and generous like taking me to McDonald’s. I know girls that just want that as well."

A second person added: "I wanna hear what her friends answers would be. She looks embarrassed by this girls answers."

A third said: "Guys get ready too and use product. They also bring their presence. Guess she should be dropping $200 too."

However, she was not without people defending her. One comment read: "That’s her standards idk why people make other peoples standards their problem."

Dating just seems to get harder, and I don't know about anyone else, but I don't have a constant supply of money to afford $200 first dates.
