Do men in your country usually pay on the first date?

If I invite someone out, date or otherwise, I expect to pay. I will admit that I do have a tendency to spoil women in general though. Even if I'm not romantically involved or we are just acquaintances, I tend to be liberal with covering the nights events. I blame my upbringing for that.

Close friends are a bit different though. We tend to just cover each other and never run up any counts. I may cover dinner and/or drinks one night when someone is low on funds. Then later on they will do the same for someone else in the group. That way we never have to leave someone out.

So to answer your original question, Yes(at least for me) I always pay on the first date. That said, if they insist on paying I normally will oblige.

I usually do because that's the way I was brought up and raised.

They fraking better! It's flat out polite to pay for it. Chivalry isn't dead....especially in the South. We're nice as shit to women.

my upbringing & personal preference compels me to wanna pay each time, but...

it's pretty sweet when my gf stops me occasionally, like: "babe... I GOT THIS."

A man is always supposed to pay for the date. I am an old fashioned kind of person and that's how i was raised. Nothing about it sexist as i have been told, just my upbringing. I like for that to show in a small way that can provide for her. But that's me...and i am single.

This question gives me a headache because my sexuality is not... conventional...


But I'll tell you something interesting, it doesn't really answer the question, but...


...I've met all sorts of men. From men who are way too loose with money, I met a guy who gave me his credit card to buy whatever I want...


...To a guy who is cheap as anything, he'll compare different brands of cereals in a supermarket... $2.39, $2.10... $1.90... "let's buy the $1.90 one since they all taste the same," he'd say... and I would shake my head internally...



So, really I have no expectations of anyone anymore. I don't know what to expect from people any more... the people I've met in my life are interesting. But... I haven't quite found the "right" man yet, that Goldilock experience.... not too hot and not too cold.

As long as she gives me fuel money as a show of respect of my cars, I'll pay for her dinner anytime
