  • This is where communication sand common sense comes into play. Common since: bring money in case, make sure have a back up ride, and phone working, communication: ask the guy, where at? What time, when, how much to bring? Are we splitting? That's basically for starters.

  • I prefer 50/50 but don't mind paying here and there or alternating. I've had situations where I was offered to have payment or even one girl insisted on paying for me when I wasn't interested in her. So it cab be awkward. I'm sure a girl or two can relate but i also am sure many intentionally take free meals.

  • If it's the first date the one asking should be the one paying. If it's not the first then it should be split. Once you're together you can either split it or take turns.

  • It will sound weird but bear with me I have a logical mind. If dater (1) has twice as much money than dater (2) and the bill comes to 75 - Dater 1 gives 50 and dater 2 gives 25

    • it's a bit personal to discuss income on a first date no? especially with a stranger

    • Show All
    • ok then what about on a first date? how should the bill be distributed?

    • I never dated someone I didn't know - It was always someone I drifted into a relationship with - Say a girl in same job and money so the bill would be automatically split.

  • each their own... no split

  • Whomever asked... That said, an offer of picking up the tab gives insight into the other persons character. Assuming that the man is paying is a little annoying.

  • Option C. Anything else is pretty rude.

  • Both people should pay, whether you choose to split or alternate isn't that important but I feel like it's slightly better to split because if you don't make it to the second date then one person paid for the whole date.

  • In general, you should pay for your own food. But, any girl I go out on a date with is not paying.

  • I think the bill should be split or take turns. And no my pride wouldn't be damaged if a woman wanted to pay the bill I would let her. If you think that the guy should pay everytime all the time, look at these horror stories abcnews.go.com/.../woman-dates-free-dinner-match-15112192

  • I'm happy to pay, but if she's not comfortable or I don't like her anyway we'll definitely split it.

  • I think that the boy should pay, although I don't think it is fair if he pays each and every time. You should at least offer to, or sometimes when he says "no", pay it anyways. But whatever you do, do not be the girl that pays for everything for her boyfriend...
