Sounds like a first date of a lifetime. So busy having fun that we both lose track of time and obviously how much the bill has come too. If I ever had a date like that, I would fucking pay the whole thing. Give him a kiss at the end of the night and say, next one is on you. Call me. That's how you handle that!
I feel like the depends. Personally I feel that guy should pay for the first date but that's because I'm almost always asked out, I really never have asked a guy out.
I'm ok with a first date being coffee or something inexpensive. If he wants me to split that, ok I guess.
But if HE chooses a more expensive first date that is on him. I always make sure I'm able to cover my half should it come to that but I feel if I guy is trying to impress me that way when I was ok with something cheap then he should pay. I shouldn't have to pay for him trying to over do it.

If I ask a woman on a date, I assume that I am paying the entire bill for everything. I would not let the bill go beyond what I can afford. I never go on a date without being prepared to spend at least $100 and I would be prepared to spend $200 on a first date.
Most of my dates include a nice dinner and a few drinks afterwards: $75-100.
You mean the man should insist on the woman paying for her share when the bill became too much? Or you mean when should the woman insist on paying her share because she feels guilty the bill got so high?
Tradition would dictate that the man would pay the bill. But at the same time he should be choose which location to invite her out to, whether or not to order a bottle of wine and how expensive a wine it should be (since that's the photo you picked), and whether or not to order a dessert for each of you, one dessert to share, or no dessert at all. Generally most meals are within a reasonable price range, and the man should know if the menu has a crazy expensive outlier like lobster or filet mignon or whatever. It's your money, do the research.
Feminism (the equality kind) would dictate both people pay their share of what they ate regardless of which date it was. Whoever did the asking out - could be the man or the woman - should also ask for input on locations, but otherwise the asker would pick the location.
So hopefully the man knows enough about the woman he's asking out (besides her looks) to tell whether she prefers the traditional or the feministic (equal) approach, and will consider restaurant choices based on the general price range they can afford, the input of the woman he asked, and whether or not he can hope for her help with her part of the check in the case of a feministic (equal) approach.
