... should they discuss in advance who should pay , or if they are to share the bill?

Since I'm a guy:
Not paying for the first date is a practical way to determine how a woman handles an unexpected situation. The ensuing amount of drama is a good predictor of what the relationship will be. If she raises no drama, pays, and says "next date's on you" then you have a keeper.

For me the assumption is that if it hasn't been discussed, both pay for their own. I don't think it needs to be discussed, but if either one wants to offer to pay, it's fine.3
