On the first date, the guy should always offer to pay the bill - and the girl should always offer to split it. However, the man should never let her pay.
This is just for the first date, of course. Later dates or during a relationship would not be on his dime only.
To me, this is a sign of respect, not only to her but to his pride and sense of dignity.
Likewise, girls who aren't genuine in their insistence over paying the first check speak volumes because a wise lady knows that she is not entitled to anything.
I don't have to. I get nothing out of it. They haven't done anything to deserve my courtesy. But I hold the door based on MY principles. The golden rule.
That is why I believe that both parties should always offer to contribute to the check.

Why is everyone fighting over this? Guys especially seem to be greedy down below. To have a successful relationship, both sides must give 100% and not expect anything in return.1
