The question Why does a man pay for the first date with a woman? was closed as off-topic.
First I will quote the latest meta post about the contents of the "On Topic" help pages:
Questions about the following subjects are on topic for this site:
the written and unwritten - but well-established and expected - rules or conventions of behavior in a specific setting (also called etiquette).
understanding social norms as they relate to interpersonal interactions - why do we interact the way we do?
We did have similar questions in the past:
For sure, these types of questions are rare, but I do not remember them ever having been considered off topic. I can recommend that answer from the etiquette link above for further insights.
No suggestions on how to improve the question have been offered in comments. So it's not clear to me, why it was closed and the OP may not know how to improve the question.
I want to add that the question had once been closed before, when the question was actually off topic ("Why would a modern woman assume and accept for her date to pay the bill?", tags: relationships, romance, women), then completely revised to fit the earlier questions (e. g. new tags: relationships, etiquette) and reopened.
Why was the question closed (as off topic)?
The question has been reopened. If you still want to answer my question, at least I would appreciate it, as it may be beneficial. Now it was put on hold for being too broad.
