If it's a first date, then the one that asked the other out should pay, but after that, it should be equally split.2

I agreed that a couple should always go Dutch when it comes to paying for dates; both pay for themselves. People should stop holding on to ridiculous norms/traditions such as that 'real men' will pay for the girl. The only reason that came about was because, back in the day, women had no income. They'd stay home, tending the house and raising the children. Making them basically dependent on the man.
I also feel uncomfortable if my boyfriend offers to pay. It becomes a back and forth then, where if he paid for me, I feel bad so I'll pay for him the next time. Which I suppose evens out in the grand scheme of things but still. Much simpler if you just pay for yourselves, assuming you've both got similar incomes/expenses.3
