There are probably too many of these floating around. But I just heard of a new US survey.
Apparently the #2 mistake men make on the first date is that they split the bill or go dutch, even if the girl offers to do it.
Last I checked, if I'm handing my money out to someone, it's a gesture of charity.
I don't mind paying, but as long as she takes it as a kind gesture, and that it isn't a one-way street. The stats show otherwise.
Apparently, if you pay for yourselves, like you would in any normal situation, it's a MISTAKE. Sub-Par. Cheap.
Wait, a guy is cheap if he doesn't pay for a girl, be a girl isn't cheap if she doesn't even want to pay for herself? Is it some sort of apology payment? "I'm sorry for being a guy." "I'm sorry for asking you out."
I'm sorry I sound angry. I just though this was an ideology that people agreed was outdated.

I think its just more of a social norm at this point. I wouldn't get offended if a guy and I split, it wouldn't be a deal breaker but in the back of my mind I would probably wonder if we were just friends or what not.
IMO its more of just a type of chivalrous act, one of the only ones left.2
