I spent like about $60 which wasn't that much but I don't know. Should she had paid? What do you think? I always pay. Always.

First, I want to address the fact that everybody say's "if she was broke and or jobless, that would be understandable". If she was broke and jobless, she shouldn't have offer to take you to dinner. There's a ton of things she could have done for you, if she was having financial troubles. She could have made you a card, made you a gift, baked you a cake, cooked you a dinner or thrown you a party. So, I'm not going to be jumping on the broke and jobless band wagon because I've been both for many years and always found ways to make birthdays special for the people I care for. So, I'm not buying that.
Now, on to your question. Yes, she should have paid. What's the point of taking someone out for their birthday, if they have to pay for it themselves? I'm not much of revenge person or out of spite person. However I say when her birthday rolls around, you offer to take her for a $60 dollar meal and when the check comes you can say "you can pay for your birthday dinner, like I paid for mine. Happy Birthday babe". Just a thought.9

My partner does the same, the funniest thing is she doesn't ask me out for my birthday so I end up asking her out on my own birthday. She makes no effort to arrange or pay for anything. My last birthday was not as great as it could have been because I ended up spending about £60 and it really limited the day as I was conscious about doing more things because I knew I would be fitting the bill. Even the suggestion of paying half would be acceptable but not even making an effort is heart breaking. I earn $15,000 and I make an effort, even making a card etc which costs very little means a lot. Earning $200,000 and doing nothing is criminal, it is made even worse because he earns such a large amount.0
