I have ventured back into the dating scene after a long committed relationship fell apart and I am not sure about what guys now think about paying for the date? I don't want to offend a guy by paying for myself without his offer, but then I don't want the guy to feel like I am super high maintenance and expect him to buy me everything. So guys, how do you prefer the girl to react when the bill arrives? Thanks!

I prefer if the girl let me take the bill. Nowadays it's usually common for the person who 'initiated' the date to pay for the costs. I mean that only seems fair, but you could always ask beforehand. Without actually saying "Are you going to pay for this?", you could ask questions around it like " Do I need my purse/wallet?". That should indicate you the answer because obviously if he's going to pay for it then he'll tell you not to or vice versa.
To make things easier, you could always pay 50/50. Like if your going to dinner then the movies, one of you pay for the dinner, other one pays for the movies. Usually guys who go on dates are somewhat gentleman enough to pay for the girls costs, without hesitation. I guess it really depends on the guys themselves.2
