What's your opinion on guys paying for the first date?

Hey, I ask the above question because lately, I've been going on dates where I paid the check, and I thought the date went well, but I end up being ghosted afterwards. I was under the belief that if the guy invites the girl to a date, that he pays for it, but I now think that could be outdated advice with all the people out there who just pretend to like you in order to get a free dinner. I'm just tired of wasting money on these people that I feel could be right for me, then end up ghosting me. It's bad enough that they wasted my time, but they also wasted my money. I started talking to this other lady lately, and, at the time of me writing this, I haven't asked her out, but she is getting there. I want to just do 50/50 this time around, and I figure if she wants me, she'll stick around and won't be petty enough to want free stuff from me. What do you think?
