  • She offered to take you out, she should pay. The asker should never ask unless they have the intention to pay. Plus it's your birthday, she should treat you even if it's just once. You could always just offer to pay a bit towards it if you feel guilty that she has to pay even though you shouldn't.

  • If it's his birthday and she offered to take him out, then she should pay. I think that would be the thing to do. I mean she said she was taking him out after all.

  • Lol well if you pay, then it really isn't a birthday gift anymore... "Happy birthday! Give me money!"

  • The initiating person "taking you out" should be the one to pay. THEY are taking YOU. Not, "Let's go together," or "How about X, Y, Z?"

    The one exception to this rule is if you insist on going somewhere you know they can't afford (which is in EXTREMELY POOR TASTE, BTW). If this is the case, then you should be prepared to pay whatever they can't.

  • I'm blown away that someone actually thought the bill should be split on her offer to dinner for his birthday.

    • If this is the guy from earlier today, had she actually split the bill that would have been an improvement.

    • I'm pretty sure that QAs girlfriend took him out and had him pay entirely. Didn't even split.

    • @becca123 Oh, I only got to see the poll numbers and the one girl. She must've deleted her post. I feel bad for her boyfriend.

  • If the girl suggests it she probably expects to pay for you, especially since it's your birthday

  • She is the one taking him our so she should pay. That wouldn't make sense. "I'm taking you out for your birthday but you're paying." That would seem insulting honestly.

  • How is she taking you out for your birthday if you are paying for it? Thats basically her inviting you to take yourself and her out for your birthday.

    • I don't know I guess i'll know tomorrow. I think she will pay.

    • I have gone out for my birthday, and paid. But I told the person I was going with that I was paying for them as my treat (I was just happy to spend it with them). That's different from this.

  • She should pay, she is taking him out, and it is his B-Day. I honestly say unless the girl is unable pay the bill for whatever reason, then the boy should be left with no bill :P
