I always see people questioning if women should split the bill or if men should pay for the entire thing. So it made me curious, how many girls have actually paid for both your and your dates meal and what were the circumstances, how did it go over?
I paid one time for both of our meals because this guy came and picked me up (my car was in the shop that week). He also had already purchased and paid for the movie tickets in advance, so I pretty much forced him to let me pay for our meal. He argued about it at first but like a true woman, I ended up getting my way bwahahaha

>> Guys how would you react if a woman insisted on paying for your meal?
To be honest, somehow I think it would trigger some feeling of insecurity for me. I'd be wondering if she doesn't like me or thought I was just wanting to cover the meal to get into her pants, something like this.
I'm still kind of "traditional" here and generally want to pay for everything. I respect the guys out there who want to split bills and I think my breed should die out in favor of a more equal kind of future. There's probably still the subtlest hint of gender bias associated with my views, though I try to fight against them.
That and I'm just not that bad-ass. If I ask a girl out and she says, "yes", I'm overjoyed. I don't want to risk ruining the mood by insisting on splitting the bill or even having her insist on paying it.
Anyway, after the initial reaction I'd agree and really thank her for the dinner, I'd think, but there would be a small flood of thoughts and emotions there for me initially. In any case, I find it admirable but there's some flutter of thoughts there if a woman insisted on doing this which would go beyond just, "Sure, awesome, thanks so much for the dinner!"3

I do it all the time, and any self respecting woman should treat their man (or woman) as well, instead of acting like some charity case or even more pathetic, a gold digger! I try to go out of my way to show my partner a good time, whether its treating him or her for dinner and drinks or treating them for desert in the bedroom :)1
