What is the limit on spending $$, time, touching, kissing, etc. when on a first date. I know its good to impress a girl, but there is also a way to come off as too needy and clingy by going overboard on a restaurant or whatever. I recently took a girl I work with on a date to Red Lobster and then went bowling afterward. I kissed her at the end of the night and we both definitely had a good time!
But anyways, I paid for everything which was about $70 total! That wasn't too much was it? It didn't seem like too much at the time but looking back on it...

It depends on your geography and if your spending a lot compared to what you have (it's more about % and age appropriateness). When I was 21 my ex use to take me to 4/5 star restaurants in NYC... It made me uncomfortable because we were college students and had no business eating $300 meals especially considering I'm small framed and 105 so I don't require that much food or wine and it was his parents $.. But that's just me.. Now that I'm in my mid 20's and still live in NYC a guy spending between $50-$150 on a date is normal but guys around 26-28 (the age I typically date) have started to build up a nice savings of their own and in NY everything is twice the price it is elsewhere (guys also expect a woman to sleep with them twice as fast here too lol)... Thus it's fine to spend $70 on a date and doesn't seem showy outside of NY if that includes your meal too... Just so long as you do this more often then less on dates and your not the only one doing it... I don't know I would sooner go on a drink date at a bar than a first date be over a slice of pizza or fast food.. but then again I would never eat pizza or fast food unless I've had a drink lol... If she's a good catch then she is or should be use to a guy who want to take her on a real date... It use to make me uncomfortable when a guy would treat me on a first date... but I've grown use to it... Your being mature for your age there's nothing wrong with that... Just try to take a woman to a more intimate restaurant and not a chain in the future.. It makes her feel special to know you went out of your way to find a spot, and make a reservation than a chain restaurant... I'm always impressed when a guy takes me to a cute place in the west village, and if I've been on a date there before I won't tell him because I think it takes away from the experience for him... If you go to a chain restaurant there's a better chance that another guy has taken her there and the place reminds her of him (just figured I'd fill you in on the female phychy you seem like a nice kid).0
