Yesterday, I went on a date with an American girl in a restaurant and everything was fine. But after we said good-bye she couldn't get away quicker. It was somewhat inconvenient because that doesn't happen usually. Frankly, it wasn't really a date. It's just a nice meeting. We weren't flirting, just having a nice chat. Therefore, I didn't pay for the check. So is that the reason for her escape? Have I been impolite in any kind? I can live with it when she doesn't like me. But I'd be quiet concerned when I have acted like a total moron because I didn't mean to be impolite. I am from Denmark and just wondered if I clashed into a culture shock.
Many thanks in advance.

I had this same conversation with some girlfriends last week and two of them said that a guy is not worth it if he does not offer to pay the entire bill on a first date. -So some women feel that we should all play that little role of chivalrous man with dependent girl for the first few dates. Then we break out and the girl then begins to open her purse as the relationship continues. It is kind of funny how we dance through this little play in early relationships but I can see how a girl would take those actions wrong. I would try to give her a call and just bring it up. If she seems like a girl worth continuing to see, I would try to just talk about it. These kind of traditions are not really defined and intentions are never really communicated, especially when two people first meet. Good luck.1
