Am taking a girl on a date maybe sometime next week and I was just wondering is it the social norm still nowadays to pay for the women's meal also. I do kind of like her and am willing to invest money in to her if only she then get what's she wants out of me and chooses not to see me again and that would make me feel like shit if another women did that again to me, I mean am always willing to split the bill?
Cheers everyone !

Despite all the modern notions in today's dating world, it is still considered polite for the guy to pay for the first dinner at least.
She SHOULD offer to pay half, but no guarantee she will. If she does, you can offer her to leave the tip.
My guy and I jokingly have "turns" now, I pay one night, he the next or one gets dinner, the other drinks and movie or whatever. It works out perfectly for us but we established this on the first date.
So yes, it is still "expected" for the guy to pick up the tab for at least the first date. Most girls will offer to chip in, though. As for "wasting your money" so to speak, that is sadly a risk you have to take to play the game. :)5
