So I was on a date with my really really close guy friend. He just asked me out because he said he wants to try it out, so I just gave it a shot. The date was going pretty good, until the dinner. Last night, we went to the movies but we both have monthly passes so that was free. We went to dinner afterwards at this really nice place that he booked, so it was good too. I couldn't really eat much because I have a meticulous dietary regimen that I follow strictly, so I just had a salad and chicken brest. He had steak and lobster -.- Anyways, the date came to a close, and I thought we would split the check or somethin because we weren't officially together, so I wouldn't expect him to pay for me anyway... HOWEVER, he asked if I could pay because he used all his money on gas for picking me up (we don't live near each other)... I barely made the cut, so I paid with all I had in my wallet.
I usually wouldn't mind, but it's the fact that he told me after he ordered his pricey meal. My mom said I shouldn't mind, because he's just a friend.. so I shouldn't expect to much out of him. But my brother said, that if he was the one to initiate the date, then he should pay for it.. or at least most of it. So I don't know, am I being to up tight about it? I've honestly only paid for a date once, but the guy wanted to pay me back after he went to the bank. And all of my other dates were mad when I offered, so I don't push them either.

Wow, that was really cheap of him.
So he can barely afford to pay for gas to come get you, but then orders steak and lobster at dinner? Sounds like a guy with pretty expensive tastes for being so broke. I'd be pissed to be honest with you. He asked you on a date, so at the very least you should've just paid for yourselves (go dutch). But for him to ask you to pay for the entire meal after he orders the most expensive thing on it? Sounds like a huge mooch.1
