    Who Should Pay On A Date?

    Well, the thread is the question itself. Who should pay?

    A few weeks ago this girl asked me out to dinner. Mmm. Twas great. The bill comes. No worries, since she's the one who did the asking she should pay right? Wrong. She was sitting there, looking at it, the bill. Then looks up at me with the DEATH STARE. So I ended up paying ( about ) 120$.

    Is it fair that the man should always pay, because it's the right thing to do? If she offered to pay, I would have payed for it. If we split it, that would have been better. But she just stared at it expecting to get a free meal.

    So, who should pay? Why, and in what situations?

    yes, us men usually pay. otherwise we pay for it with our lives and years of nagging.

    as for why: i am not sure, i guess they expect us to be more "gentleman like"?

    I personally think that men should always pay. For me, I would feel uncomfortable knowing that I allowed the lady to pay for our meal.

    I paid the plane ticket, she can pay for McDonalds.

    If it's a first date, I'm pretty sure the new-age rule is that the asker pays. The reason people have men-pay in their minds, is because women aren't supposed to ask in the first place, see how that works.

    As for me...going dutch on things is just fine for me. Well, paying for your own. I'm like...$4 in MD's, and she's like...$1. XD

    If I was that girl, I'd just ask every guy out to a nice place just for free food.

    I think the bill should be shared. Gender equality and all.



    I never add friend codes.

    it would probably be best not to go into that.

    I don't think we live in the stone age anymore.. I think that if she asked you out then she should pay and vise versa. If you are in a relationship were you have been on a few dates then each of you should pay for what you ate or take turns paying. It's only fair.

    I believe the man should always pay, but i'm old school. With me and my girl she never pays for anything. All i expect from her is a nice dinner when i get home and you know ...but then again like NikkiLee said we are not in the stone age anymore and a lot of women do get offended when you pay for them. I guess it all depends on the person. But the man should always be ready to pay and never say anything when it comes ready to pay, let her say somethin first.
