I recently read a post where the fellow was wondering what was happening. He wined and dined, romanced - even paid for half of everything. That made me wonder (as someone who regularly pays 100%), who pays when you go out?

- We split it 50/50Vote B

- The girlVote D
- We mix it up and it depends on different factorsVote E

We mix it up, and usually we don't split we just take turns paying for things. For instance, last night we went to dinner and a movie. He got dinner and I got us tickets. So it's like that. I would say overall if we counted everything up he's paying more, though. I think it's 30/70 or something. He is earning a lot more than me. Sometimes what he wants to do I can't really afford, so in those cases I still want to contribute what I can, but he ends up paying for a lot of it.
I always offer to pay and split though, and in the beginning he didn't want to take me up on that at all, but I explained the way I feel about it and I think as we've dated he's become more comfortable with it.0

Its funny how no one voted whoever's the higher wage earner when that's the reason why guys paid for the date all the time everytime back in the day. Now guys still have to pay even if they earn less. I have yet to know a woman who pays 50/50 I've only encountered them on gag. Maybe I have some magical power that only makes women who expect men to pay come around me in my 30 plus years of living on this earth, going to plenty of places.1
