Despite all the modern notions in today's dating world, it is still considered polite for the guy to pay for the first dinner at least.
She SHOULD offer to pay half, but no guarantee she will. If she does, you can offer her to leave the tip.
My guy and I jokingly have "turns" now, I pay one night, he the next or one gets dinner, the other drinks and movie or whatever. It works out perfectly for us but we established this on the first date.
So yes, it is still "expected" for the guy to pick up the tab for at least the first date. Most girls will offer to chip in, though. As for "wasting your money" so to speak, that is sadly a risk you have to take to play the game. :)

I don't care about the changing norms and gender roles. I was raised to be a gentleman and that included paying for the girl. It sets a good impression and makes me feel good. If she insisted on splitting, that's fine but if I'm going on a date, my intention is to pay for the both of us.
