Most men I've dated have grabbed the bill after dinner before I've even have a chance to reach, or insist it be on one bill when asked, or even getting ahead in the subway line just to say that my sub is on his bill (and of course its a meal) ... the new guy I'm dating not so much.
There's always a moments hesitation when the bill arrives and I feel as though he's hoping that I'm going to take it. I feel like if he wants my company when he's out, then he's going to have to pick up the bills. He definitely has the money for it, that's not the issue, and he knows that right now I'm a broke college student. Is this not fair?
Where do most men sit on who takes the bill?
* When I have the money, I usually insist, for the record.
Most Helpful Guy
I feel like unless there's a large income difference, the bill should be split. In real life though, I would pay for the date unless she was persistent about it because a lot of girls find a guy not paying for a date to be distasteful and some even offer to pay when they have this mindset 'to seem polite' when they will actually secretly be upset if a guy lets them. I find the expectation that a guy pay for the date to be outdated and rather sexist. This is the 21st century, people. You are supposed to be enjoying EACH OTHERS company, it isn't one person on a date and the second person just being along for the ride. I'll pay for the date because it's something that isn't a HUGE deal to me and a lot of people just don't think about it in that level of depth. But in an ideal world, I feel like it should be split as evenly as is possible.0
