This is a much debated subject in 2013. I am curious about everyone's opinion...
Most Helpful Guy
I'll pay if I asked her to the date myself, but if she offers half I'll consider it.
Thing for me is I start small which may put a girl off. I'll invite her to coffee so I can get to know her but a lot of girls feel like a guy offering a coffee date is an "interview" when it really isn't. It can get deal breakers out of the way if any and genuinely help in getting to know someone. Why waste money on a dinner if I don't know her? You'll be stuffing your face with food with no real time to talk. A movie's even dumber because you two are just sitting at a screen and never talking. I'll consider those things after I get to know her. Girls wanting to do those kinds of things before getting to know me send off a gold digger red flag. I've lost count as to how many girls I have lost contact with. Thankfully I never wasted money on them since they aren't dating material.1
