I see a lot of people on this site saying they think whoever ask, should pay. I don't necessarily disagree with it, as long as those same people are actually willing to ask other people out as well.
My view is, someone had to let their guard down, approach you and risk the chance of rejection, so on top of that, you expect them to pay for you as well and vice versa, just doesn't make sense to me lol

Well, if I ask someone out - and I have before - I go into it expecting to pay for the date since it's my invitation. That said, I appreciate it when the other party offers to pay their share, and if it's important to him to chip in, by all means.
I know that when I'm asked out, I have a certain way of doing things. If I don't feel like it's going to go anywhere, I have to insist on paying because I likely won't see him again and I don't want him to feel taken advantage of. If I do think we'll see each other again, I'll still offer to pay, but if he says he's got it I'll accept that and say thanks, and that I can get it next time. Taking turns works pretty well.2
