Well the obvious norm is that the guys pay for the food and stuff when they go to a restourant or something. But doesn't it feels awkward? I've just never been in a relationship before, so I'm used to paying for my own stuff. I would feel bad if it was the guy to only pay for those stuff, even though it's accepted like that in society. Guys, do you like paying during a date? And girls, do you feel it's the guy's job to pay?

I never let my boyfriend pay for my part of the meal unless I cover the whole meal the next time, and he's the same way. It's just not fair. Money is hard to come by these days and jobs for new graduates is hard to find so when we do go out we always make sure to split it even, or if one person pays the other person will pay them back- he'll pay for dinner so I'll pay for the movie. And we don't go anywhere expensive so that usually equals out. But guys paying is an antiquated idea left over from a time when women weren't allowed to have jobs and work so they couldn't pay because they didn't have any money that wasn't their parent's or their husband's.1
