  • On a first date, I prefer to pay for my own share of the bill. Because if the date doesn't go too well , and we don't want to meet up again he won't feel used as a
    " meal ticket". I'd feel guilty if he paid , and I didn't want to see him again. I wouldn't want him to feel used

    If we'd been dating a while and he insisted on paying, then I'd insist that I pay the next time. I'm financially independent, so I'd hate someone else to always pay my way.

    It'd be unfair to expect the guy to always pay, because he may have very little money. He may not be able to afford to pay for two meals. He might just make enough money to get by himself. I have the means to pay for my own meal.

  • Is this assuming it's a first date? Here's the way I see it. A first date should be very simple and low cost as you don't know the other person and if you guys don't click you haven't wasted heaps of money on a fancy dinner. So as a guy I'll pay for a coffee or alcohol at a pub for me and the girl. And I'll say she can buy what we have the next time so she knows I'm no pushover. So don't go for dinner on a first date, leave it til later when you know each other better and there will be a next date for sure.

  • No way, just don't take a new date to an expensive place if you aren't sure she can afford it. Especially on the first couple of dates when things aren't serious both should split. If you're together you can each take turns. Why waste money on someone if he/she don't take you serious.

  • Iโ€™m ganna say this. If a guy pays for your meal the first date. I think itโ€™s also polite to give him another date after that. Because although it is polite for him to pay, it looks like your just using him for a free meal. Ladies should always be ready to pay your own way. After awhile of dating and she actually being your woman. Itโ€™s now expected that you pay for your lady

  • Whoevers idea it was to go out should pay, unless its an established sugar repationship, but always offer to split the check is my rule of thumb

  • Yes! Because its the right thing to do in every circumstance. I can't imagine dating or sleeping with a guy who can't afford or doesn't wanna pay for my meal

  • I think for the first one yes, but after a while it shouldn't matter anymore. If she were to make you pay for every single one and deny the option to ever pay. It's selfish in it's own right.

  • It's depends on if it's a date and he asked to take her out, if your interested in her "romantically". If your just hanging out with a friend you don't have to.

  • For the most part. If you're in a long-term relationship though the girl should be helping out too. But in general yes

    • It makes me uncomfortable when I watch a couple eating out and see the girl pay for everything

  • Nope. They should split the bill or if the guy paid for the meal, the girl should pay for the next meal.

  • I suppose, maybe on the first date, but it's not a MUST DO for all guys. I just would. Because that's who I am. If I'm trying to impress someone, I help them anyway possible.

    • But the guy invites like 90% of the time

    • @Markfish That's the custom here in Chile. T

    • The one who says "I invite you to do (something)" pays, regardless of gender. But if you are in a relationship when you go out often, I think it's fair to split the bill or you pay today and I pay tomorrow.

  • At first yes
    Once things start to roll it should be either splitting the check
    Or a meal on the guy and a meal on the girl
