I would like to pay for myself when we go out, but not sure what's the appropriate way to do it.
my view is:
1-if we're going for lunch, I can ask for separate check.
2-if we're going for drink, what do I do?
3-if we're going somewhere where I can pay first, I'll just pay first.

If it's a restaurant where you pay first, you can do that. If it's like most places where you pay after you eat, don't ask for separate cheques. That always ends in a quick disagreement between the two people something like "oh, can we get separate checks please?", to which the guy quickly says "no no, it's my treat" and then you either accept it and let him pay for you or continue arguing. How about when you guys are getting close to finishing your drinks or meal, excuse yourself from the table. Go to the front and just ask the waitress to bring two separate cheques. Problem solved. :)0
