Mom is old fashion and just wants the best for you.
You however have to make this decision on your own because only you can prevent forest fires.
Ideally a first date is not suppose to be about food. Its about having fun and getting to know a girl.
Gifts are for 3rd dates and beyond after you have had sex and established a relationship.

You just need to be honest with him. No need to upset just tell him that you don't feel a connection so you think you should leave it there. I've always found when girls are honest with me I appreciate it and move on. If he takes honesty badly then that's on him, assuming you aren't a dick about it.
Definitely don't go on a second date, as that would just get his hopes up further. Unless you think there's some possibility something could come of it. Which it doesn't sound like you think there is...
If he wants to spend money that's his choice, often guys who do that are just trying to impress you in the short term anyway I've found. Although not always.

Uh no, you don't owe him anything because he spent money on you. If you're not comfortable with a second date because you're not attracted to him then leave it at that. Otherwise he'll spend more money and make you feel more guilty and it'll be just a mess.
