Have an opinion?
Not going to lie, when I go out on a date I like to have fun and enjoy myself. So if we do something like going out to eat, I EAT. I'm talking seafood, steak, the works. I would feel absolutely horrible having the guy pay for me, especially if it doesn't go well and I don't want another one or take the date further. I definitely pay for my own stuff. Not to say if we are a couple or something serious, then I have fun taking turns paying for dates. It provides a special sentiment with buying things for each-other, rather than just expecting them to buy everything
The inviter should be obliged to pay. If splitting the bill this should have been made clear at the invitation stage.
I'll not let him pay the whole bill... either split or I'll pay, but I don't want to be of burden
I'd prefer to split it. I appreciate the thought of someone paying for me and later on in the relationship, I'd be cool with switching out who pays each time. However, for a first date, I just don't think it's appropriate. Not only am I an adult who is happy to pay for herself, I'm not interested in then somehow owing this other person something, nor am I interested in them feeling resentful for feeling like they're expected to pay. I'm staying away from that and doing my own thing.
Well i grew up believing its normal for a guy to pay for dinner dates
It nice if he pays, but I won't expect him to pay, or ask him to do it if he doesn't offer it himself.
The asker should pay. It's called class.
Dine and dash. Leave her to pay the bill
Pay for yourselves
