We've all seen (& gotten horribly tired of) the "Who should pay on a date" question. I'd like to try a little twist...
Say you've got Person A and Person B and they go on a date together. If Person A makes SIGNIFICANTLY more money than Person B (either because they've got a really good job, or they won the lotto, or they come from a rich family, being in different life stages, etc) who do you think should pay for the date?
Aspects to consider:
- Who asked?
- Type of date
- Gender roles (modern)
- How big is the annual salary difference
- Splitting the cost/who buys what
- Anything else you can come up with.
Note: For this question, a "significant" salary difference can be anything from $20-30,000+ more per year to Person A making/having several times Person B's annual salary. Feel free to specify any difference within that range in your answer.

If I like a guy, I let the guy pay the first time. I would tell him I got him next time.
Where as if I didn't like a guy, I would just split the bill that way, I know that I don't have to go out with him again (no need to feel like I owed him).1
