A guy I'm possibly going out with soon and might start a relationship with has asked in advance if we could split paying for things when he comes in from out of town to spend the weekend with me, since it "would be easier on his wallet". I'm not sure if I'm overreacting by being a little offended by this or not, considering he has 2 jobs and I don't even have one. I was always taught that it's proper/polite for a guy to pay on dates when a couple is just starting to go out together (even though there's nothing wrong with the girl offering to split the bill), but when things are a little more serious it's a little more appropriate to split costs or even take turns paying for things. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are.

The guy should pay. I never bring it up and just pay. Only if she insists on splitting it, then I'll let her. It's not just being old-fashioned but I think important for the guy to show he has resources and could be a good provider.1
