Well, I'm just curious to how much a guy should spend on the first date. I'm talking about total cost for both persons. I'm thinking max $60 if I know the person pretty well and go dutch on a random girl that I don't know too well?
Let's hear some of yeah thoughts on this one ^_^

Personally, I'd feel a little uncomfortable if a guy took me out on some expensive outing for our first date, lol. The objective is to have fun and get to know each other, not throw money around and try to impress by spending. I think dinner or lunch [with or without drinks] and some cool random drive sounds great. I'd probably want to contribute in some way, whether it be paying for gas or drinks and the tip, especially if the meal was kind of expensive and he insisted on paying for that.
If I were the one planning and initiating that date, I'd budget like $20-30 for the meal and tip, because most restaurants I like and would choose to go to [for a date or otherwise] are fairly affordable, with excellent food, and I like to tip well. In MY car [because I get good gas milage], I'd budget like $10 for gas, because I know a lot of really cool country back roads that are great for just cruising and talking, with lots of spots to park and look at the stars or other scenery.2
