On the second week of my final being on the 18th to the 24th of November, I conducted an experiment relating to the topic of relationships and money. I asked staff and students four questions; who should be the breadwinner in the relationship, who should pay on the first date, how much should one tip the waiter and how much should one spend on a present for their significant other. After going around asking 50 men and 50 women the results are in. In today’s post, we will be going to compare the results to my predictions separately by question. If you don’t know and you want to know how I developed/inspired the creation of my questions, my predictions and the reasoning behind my predictions, click here. If not, the final results are ready for us to hop right into it.
Who should be the Breadwinner in the Relationship?
I’d say its safe to say that my predictions were pretty close with the leading answer being “Both.” The second place result was “The one with the Better Job” which I found to be a bit weird, although I put it as my third place prediction, I think it would be unfair if the one with the better job and the one who is making less would pay nothing at all. Imagine you make 1000 a week and your partner makes 500, then you have to pay 600 dollars for bills and other payments and your partner doesn’t have to pay a dime. That ain’t it chief.
Who Should Pay on the First Date?
I guess the feminazis haven’t ruined gender roles completely. I just want to talk about two things I found weird, otherwise, you can just read the graphs, leave your assumptions in the comments below and let me tell you the fishy things that happening in RCTC. One of the things I found kind of weird that one-third of men said that the bill should be split in half. That is incorrect in my opinion, I don’t know who raised those kids but they need to do a better job. Every man should know that he (the man) should be paying on the first date. Even if she asked you on the sate you had the option to say no. Another thing that I found weird was that despite there being many crazy feminists nowadays two-thirds of women said that the man should pay. (Also, I’m not saying that all the women took the survey are feminists.) That was it for this question and to transitions smoothly into the next question I just want to say, NEXT.
How Much Should One Tip the Waiter?
6% of the people I surveyed said other which meant either they said they tipped 15% or not at all. Otherwise, it is good to know we have good tippers here at RCTC. Whether they are telling the truth… IDK… can’t tell you that but what I can tell you for a fact is that… ummm… the bible is the most stolen book in the world. A teacher asked us this in high school for a trivia question and she said that was the answer so… NEXT.
How Much Should One Spend on a Present for their Significant Other?
For this question I think my predictions were pretty close, the only thing was that people were actually honest and said $50. But this might have to do with women because they were the ones saying 50 bucks more and the men were saying greater than 75 bucks. Maybe women are just more honest… who know leave your comment below kids. Also, I mean I would say greater than 75 bucks but if I got to be realistic… I would have to say 50. You know me guys, I don’t have that kind of money.
To conclude and close the puppy up is that I think men and women’s answers were very similar except for the ‘how much should one tip the waiter question.’ I have to admit this experiment was fun, the one last week one was too but yea… that’s it kids.
Thanks, yeet, cya, bye.
