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

if i ask you out, i pay. if you ask me out, you pay.

or i pay for what i consume, and you pay for what you consume.

I feel like OP contradicts herself. You're a guy so you should pay to me is already something that should be scrutinized

Depends on how the date is going. If I know it isn't going anywhere there's no way I'm going to be just a free meal. If I think the date has potential then I'll probably go all in.

culturally yes but with all the feminism cries these days i suppose girls are expected to pay for their own meal now, or even pay for both

idk know about the dating thing.. actually no i hear from my friends that the guys are supposed to pay but i havent dated yet so i wouldnt know... but i do know some vampire bitches that date men that pay for everything and drain them from out their money until they run out, then dump then so i would be careful about giving your girlfriend money... some of them date old rich men and wait for them to die to take all their money and some even laugh and plan out dating rich men to get money... my source for this info is from college so i dun know if it's the truth throughout all stages of life but hope it helps...

That wasn't my point, if you carried on reading you'll notice that I said guy and girl should take it in turns to pay if it's a long term relationship. There is nothing wrong with a guy not paying on the first date, he is just not for me as I want someone who is (or at least seems) generous.

US guy here: If I'm the one taking her out then I pay. I just find it wierd thinking that some men would probably expect a women to pay on the first date.

Depends on the situation and the guy.
On 'dates' i usually pay my half and he pays his, unless he really insist, I'll let him pay.

As for now it's been 13 years i know my bf and I guess you cannot rly call em 'dates' anymore...
But when we go out, either we pay half half or one of us pays and the next time we go out we switch.
For me it's just fair to share the fees.... Cannot always be the same person who pays.

On the first date the person who asks usually pays. It would probably be rude to ask someone out and then expect them to pay for themselves when they gave up their time for you ( and may regret that fact) so you owe them

.Afterwards when you start dating for real people usually pay for themselves or take turns paying for both.

This is what I usually see.

Speaking from Wales, if I went on a date, I'd expect the other half to pay whatever she orders and I pay for my orders. It may be different if its a trip to the cinema or pub. Entirely depends on the pricing.

How tiring must it be to follow all these dumb social niceties. Is it really that hard to go 50/50?

Here, when you go on a date, you usually just go to the mall and pay for yourself.....
