When you go out with your significant other, do you pay at all?
Girls, do you pay on dates?

We take turns. In the beginning he was taking me out all the time and paying for stuff, which was really nice, but I thought he deserves to be spoiled as well :)
Update: Nah, I'm not exactly sure how much he has spent on me or the most he has spent on me at once. If he's paying I don't generally see the final bill.0
I pay for what I ordered. Nuff said. If he says he'll pay then cool. More money to spend on myself... but then I'd feel guilty and offer to pay next time.0
I've paid in the past if I initiate going out, but if he is the initiator then I will offer to split the check. Sometimes I've had to pay my half, other times the guy will take the bill. I would never let anyone pay for a bill over $30 for the both of us without chipping in, or at least taking the tip.
I don't expect a guy to pay, and I'm more comfortable contributing somehow, but I do appreciate the offer/makes a good impression.1
For me, a guy must offer to pay pn dates otherwise I will lose interest, but I usually won't let him pay unless I like him a lot and have been very comfortable with him.0
alternative :) first him next me then goes back to his turn again..then its fair and square :-)0
I believe in alternating bills. This time, you pay. Next time, I pay. You know what I mean? But on a first date if I remember correctly, he pays. BUT, boys usually offer.0
Hell no. He doesn't let me anyway.0
If he asks me out he pays. But if there are multiple events on the date (coffee, dinner, movies, drinks, etc) then I offer for something. Maybe the tip or something like that.1
Nope. 3 years and he's only let me pay twice! He once picked me up over his shoulder and carried me into the movie theater when I tried to pay. Another time I paid for something and I found $20 in my wallet the next day -_-. He's spent quite a bit of money on me. I'd say gifts, dates, and all total to about $1,000 while I've spend about $300 on him. If I want to spend money on him it has to be on his birthday or Christmas. Otherwise he just won't let me.0
I feel relationships should be 50/50. Sometimes he'll pay and sometimes I'll pay, it's only fair.1
I always offer to pay, it's up to the guy to accept it or not.1

its totally fair that everyone pays his share on every date unless someone offered to pay for the date at the beginning .. I don't think that guys are obligated to pay at all even if it's the first date .. am not hiring a hooker to pay for everything .. she went out she had fun .. she should pay too !0
I have never had a date where the woman paid, and I don't mind that a bit. What I do mind is the hypocrisy of women who want "equality", but not true equality. This thread demonstrates that beautifully.1
I like to split it down the middle, or do a "you pay tonight, I pay tomorrow" sort of thing.0
Unless we were in a very long term relationship or live together, I would always pay.0
