I've asked out three guys a couple months ago.
Going dutch isn't my style and I like putting more effort, esp if I can afford it.
Guy 1: it was 30 bucks
Guy 2: 42 bucks
Guy 3: 28 bucks
I was willing to pay for the whole date (after all I did the asking out) but they insisted on helping. Two of them split it in half and the last one paid 20 bucks.

Well this is just my own personal preference and my upbringing but I was raised to be a man, a gentleman and a honorable person, I don't like anyone paying for anything for me. Not when I can pay for it myself and you know if I ask you out, then it's my duty to pay for it, and even if it was the other way around and you asked me I'd still insist that I at the least pay for what I ordered if you wouldn't let me pay for it all together. It just seems like the ethical and right thing to do.
Call me old fashioned but that's just the way I am, I'm a very old school kind of guy.1

Same happened to me. I asked him/suggested the date location, day and time. I offered to pay for his food and he said no and was a little upset that I paid for my own food and didn't let him pay. It was our 2nd and last date haha
I wasn't use to dating so I thought it'd be nice to split the bill or reciprocate. I guess some guys see it as an insult like we're saying that he can't afford it on his own.
Next time I'm not gonna offer to pay caz things always go sour :/1
