To me, its plain simple sense that I pay my own part (or sometimes the one who asks pays for the first date unless the other one offers to pay part but that should be as far as it goes) because going by common sense just because I'm a girl doesn't mean I should be paid for that's just stupid! But yet some guys are offended when a girl pays her part... why? Do guys just lack self respect? I feel sorry for the sensible guys...
On the other hand I haven't actually witnessed it much, just read about it (but its not like I know details of everyone's dates so I obviously can't say what goes on...) maybe this is a US thing, and I live in the UK, but anyway what's so bad about a girl having sense and paying her own part and not expecting the guy to just because of what reproductive organs he has

I agree. Especially for young, shy guys, they are trying to pay as a sign that it is a 'date' not just two friends hanging out. Its not that you now owe them, its just that your acceptance of them paying shows that you accept that it is a 'dating' scenario, and you paying could be a sign that you want to keep it just friends.
If you want to pay and he is trying to decline, a little flirting to let him know he's not being shot down by you paying would be in order.0
