Sexist or Chivalrous: Dating site makes men pick up the tab

It's the latest matchmaking site to debut on the web. HiDine.com is about creating a romantic connection between two people with a compatible love for food.

Like other dating sites, men and women create a profile with a picture and their story. On HiDine.com they also include their favorite restaurants and foods they love. Members are free to browse. When a man asks a woman out on a dinner date, he also pays a deposit.

But some critics of the site are not convinced the HiDine.com promotes love matches or chivalry.

"Some females may feel pressured. They may feel like they are obligated for something more because they {the man} paid for it. Especially since they're putting on these websites some restaurants that may be costly," said Tiki Curry.

Some even say women may just use it for a free fancy meal and the idea that men have to pick up the tab may be old school for some.
