I've been out with a lot of different guys and I always find it funny when the check comes and watching each guys different reaction. I've dated guys that made me pay for everything. I've also dated guys that positively refused to let me even split the bill. One time a begged a guy to let me pay for our third date and he hesitantly agreed and then explained to the waitress why I was paying. I thought it was nice, but a little over the top and maybe more about him than me.
What do you think about paying? What do you think is the difference in these different mindsets?

No, I would not be insulted. I'm old-fashioned in many ways...I'm a gentleman, I'm chivalrous, I will absolutely defend and protect her, and I'll treat her like a lady and respect her. But I will not buy her.
I do ALWAYS pay for a first date, though. It just feels like the right thing to do, and really it's just the way I like it. Beyond that though, I like it if we go out and just take turns paying...I get one, she gets one. And I'm not a huge fan of splitting because that sorta seems platonic.
