his guy who I do like and we do get a long has asked me on breaks with him and lunch where he took me out and paid both times. He asked me on a break again but he didn't pay this time does that mean he doesn't like me that way or I'm in the friend zone or I did something wrong? he mentioned after we bought our stuff that he had bad money managemnet or something like that.. ha ha and mentioned that he is getting paid soon..just wondering if a guy stopped paying does that mean your just a friend. I would have paid for him this time but he beat me to it and just paid before I could ask. cause next time when he asks me on break I'm gonna pay regardless. And I don't expect him to pay or anything I;m not like that just wondering if that a red flag or something.
My boyfriend and I occasionally will go dutch on meals, usually he'll ask if he's running low on money. I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's likely he's just trying to watch his money until next pay and still wants to have his lunch with you. It's something he looks forward to as well I'm guessing and this time really wanted it, but just couldn't afford the two of you at that point and the fact that he brought it up, means he probably doesn't like that I couldn't pay, so he didn't want you to worry about what him not buying for you this time.
Its sounds like he was just short on cash. Either that or he expected you to pay too since he feels you aren't in a relationship so you should share the bill. Guys can be clueless with these kind of things sometimes.
He wants to see if you are the type of women that will make him pay all the time. I used to always pay when in a relationship, but after I saw how many women liked to date these gangsta type of guys that don't even pay for McDonald's I decided to accommodate them and not pay after the first few dates.
I think, in this day and age, it's okay for guys not to pay... equal level playing field for guys/girls. when you're married and one person commits to household stuff and the other, work related, I think it changes.
My boyfriend pays for me wherever we go...But when he's sick, I'll go visit him at work and bring him soup and his favorite candy. I had flowers sent to him when he had to work on Christmas *he likes flowers* I think it's a matter of give and take.
if he said he had bad money management skills it's probably just because he realized he only had money for himself or just realized its too expensive to pay for you all the time. I think that if he keeps asking you out, he likes you. Just make sure it's not a at-work thing. he needs to ask you out on a real date otherwise he could just want to be lunch buddies.
