She's never tried sushi but loves fish. I asked to see if we could change the fact that she never had sushi on Sunday. She put her hands on her face and smiled but seemed more concerned with eating raw fish than the date. It seems casual and it is casual. But I'm not sure if I should pay for her like I normally would. Or keep it 50/50 to keep things slow. First time out together.
If you're serious about her than pay if not then don't. If a guy didn't pay for me the first date there wouldn't be a second. See if she offers though because she shouldn't just expect it either. If she demands to pay she probably just wants to be friends. That's just my opinion though.
You pay... always... The only exception is if you are in a committed relationship for many months at least and you are having income problems compared to her. Otherwise, be the man, do your duty, and pay for her.
