My date was offended the other night when I asked her if she wanted to split the bill when the check came. Do all girls expect the guy to pick up the check on a first date?

I think it depends. For me personally, whether or not it was a date or an outing with a friend, if there wasn't some kind of agreement that you would both be paying for your own meals/splitting the bill, etc. then I expect the person who asked to pick up the bill. Because maybe the other person can't really afford it and if they had been aware from the get go that they would be paying they would have said no.
It's not like I just expect guys to buy my meals for me, I just expect everyone to follow that, including myself. If I ask a friend out to eat, or for coffee, etc, I pay, unless we already have a different understanding (like habitually go for coffee and we each pay for our own). Where there is no precedent date or outing, the terms for paying should be set out beforehand and it's on the person asking to make sure those terms are clear, or else it's perfectly fair for the other person to assume that you're picking up the tab.0

Unfortunately a lot of women do. I've done it before several times, but honestly I've never got passed a 2nd date with any of them (not correlating them or anything.)
But you know, don't ever spend money on a woman unless you are 110% sure you want to be with her.0
