Who should pay for dinner on a date? Should the man always pay? Should the bill be split? Is it ever okay for the woman to pay? Guys if the girl does pay does it make you feel emasculated?

In my opinion, people give way too much significance to who's pay. In the end, it really doesn't matter. I think it's safe to say most of us are just about in the same boat financially. If you're a broke student, you're probably going for a date with another broke student. If you've got an established full-time job, you're probably going out with someone who also has a full-time job, maybe even a co-worker.
I can't tell you the number of times my friends have bitched to me about how a date with their boyfriend was 'absolutely dreadful' because he didn't pay. Or bitch about my own guy when they learn he didn't pay when that's the case?
Split it. 99% of the time, my boyfriend & I split the bill. Occasionally, like anniversary/birthday dinners or random times, he'll treat me. A little more rarely but still once in a blue moon, I'll even get the bill. It's a really nice gesture for a guy to pay, but if I'm going out to eat with you, I value your company much more than the size of your paycheque.0
