is it a social protocol that the guy pays? or it depends on individuals?or people usually split bills? it gets awkward when paying the bills because I don't know if he'll pay mine or I should take out my money?

Personally, if a guy likes you enough to ask you out, he is going to pay. I think guys should take care to ask girls out for dates they can afford and not feel they have to live up to something they can't.
Now, if you are on a date and you are just not feeling the guy, well I always carry cash with me and depending on the situation I might offer to go Dutch. I just don't like a guy paying for me if I really have no interest in seeing him again, but, again, it depends. Someone who takes me out for a drink, I think it is no big thing for them to pay for one drink. I also believe you should not go overboard. If your date is not ordering premium liquor, for instance, I don't think you should either.
A guy who would not pay for our first date to me is a guy who really isn't sure he likes me that much and/or he is cheap and since I want a guy who really likes me and I am generous to my friends and family, well I don't want to date a cheapskate either. Mystix answer is fine, he can still get a girl, but to me I would see him as a total player who didn't have any sincere interest and I wouldn't date him a 2nd time.0
