Do you think that men should pay for the whole meal or that each person should pay for their own meal? Is this something that should occur on every date, or just the first or so? Men, do you say outright that you will/won't pay for both meals, or wait to see how it will develop?
Be honest! It doesn't help to sugarcoat this.
I've seen a big divide on this. Some people say that men paying for the whole meal is naturally how it should go down and shows that he is capable of providing. Other people say that it's a means to "win somebody over" (like showering someone with gifts) and less respectful than holding the man and woman to equal standards. I honestly don't have strong feelings either way, but it would be helpful for me and other guys to know beforehand.

i think a mixture of both is fair. (assuming neither have giant financial problems) although in my opinion, the guy should pay for the first date. going dutch is good too.0
