Guys: Why they're no longer DATING.

I just read one of Music's replies and didn't want to hijack That's thread . . .
One morning last week a DJ on a local radio station (this AM broadcast is based out of GA) was talking about how guys don't take girls out on dates any longer. He kept referring to "group dates" and even "group texting". He also talked about the "just come over and chill" syndrome. Then he went on to say it's our fault as women, that we've conditioned men to do this . . . I was beside myself. I actually got so angry, that I haven't listened to their morning show since.
I get that there are plenty of women, and younger girls, who will and do settle for these types of scenarios but I certainly don't and didn't appreciate him saying that the blame falls on the women. I get that guys are in the same financial predicament that a lot of women are, but they don't have to spend $50 on dinner. It would be nice just to see a little bit of thought or effort and old fashioned courting is still quite appealing to a lot of women. In my opinion, I don't know, I could be wrong but if a guy isn't putting forth any effort, is he really interested? I mean, what is that, anyway(just come over and watch a movie with me, maybe mess around if you are game but with no romantic expectations)? Maybe some guys will weigh in, here.
I get that some girls may ruin it for those like myself, they may indeed make guys lazy but I still don't see how that equates to it being "our" fault, as a whole sex. I think it was a blanket excuse. I usually respect and agree with this particular DJ's comments but this one really threw me for a loop.
