So I took out this girl on my boat because she wanted to go fishing and as far as I know it was just supposed to be a friendly hang out. She was supposed to have her other friend come along too but she bailed. Anyways she didn't have a fishing license and I offered to pay for it and she was like that's ok I got it, well we had lunch later on and I figured since she didn't want me paying for the fishing license that I didn't bother offering to pay for our meal. Not sure if that was bad or not but we just kind of split the bill. What do you think? I bought drinks and snacks for when we went fishing and of course took her fishing.

It's not bad that you split, but I think she was at least expecting you to offer. Although most women now are totally cool with splitting I think a lot of times it still comes with the expectation that a guy at least OFFERS. I don't think it's a big deal, but I read some of your updates and it sounds like she hasn't gone out with you since, so that might have been a thing. I think paying for lunch is different than the licence, lunch is more of the actual date part of it whereas the fishing was just the fun thing you guys can enjoy together kinda deal. Hard to explain, just how I'm seeing it.0

You didn't anything wrong man, doesn't sound like she's interested honestly.
As guys, we should all start splitting the tab on the first date. It'll help filter out some women. How me expecting you to pay for your own meal, this one time, is considered a deal breaker is beyond on me. It says less about the guy and more of the person insisting they're owed a free meal.
