If he does not buy my first drink there is no second date.

Whoever eats more pays the bill.
Luckily for the ladies, that is always me. Unless your skinny with a black hole for a stomach, (I'll still pay for the first date out of sheer shock, but everyone after will be you) or a fatty who doesn't understand a thing about healthy eating. (I'll ditch you asap, and leave you with the bill.)

Eh, I kinda disagree.

Idk, as a guy if the girl has the guts to ask me out the least I can do is pay for the first date.

That being said you don't need to spend a fortune to have a decent date, if you are for a first one you are doing it wrong.

If I offer take someone out, I expect to pay for both of us. In any case I always insist on at least paying half, but if someone really wanted to get the bill on principal, I wouldn't argue. You have to know how to accept kindness.

For me, I think both should offer to pay. Whether or not one person pays or the other just depends on the situation and whose willing to budge. Ideally for me, I always prefer to split our bill respectively and just cover our own dinner but if they insist I think it just depends on the moment if I am willing to let them pay for it or not. If I'm doing the asking out, I'll offer to pay for it but then again I always offer to pay...Typically with women we've split the bill most of the time & are fine with it, sometimes do get more than one date with them. But with guys a number of them ( but not all) always pushed for them to pay for it all. I do appreciate it a lot when guys do it, but... I really feel better when I can split it, i feel kind of guilty when they pay for it all even though I am flattered.

I've gone on dates where I've paid and other times my date has paid. I'd say don't stress about it. That's one of the least important parts of the date.

Depends on the person in question and their financial stability/mentality.

I am meeting a childhood friend over the holidays and taking her on a date. I will be paying for it 100%. She doesn't have the money to spare. I have also taken a girl on a date who refused to let me pay for her and paid her share. Hell, she tried to pay for MINE. I had to steal my bill from the waiter!

Some people like to pay for others (I look at my Grandfather... that $879 dinner bill at the Country Club in the Florida Keys... Or my Grandpa and late Grandma taking 17 of us on a Caribbean Cruise... I don't even want to guess this cost), and some don't mind being on the receiving end (sure as hell not me or the rest of our family).

I say whoever did the asking out does the paying, but eh. Doesn't matter to me.

If the man likes the girl and wants to pursue a relationship you better pony up the first bill, even if she insists on splitting it. If the man wasn't 100% thrilled on going in the first place then split. Just don't be surprised to get a nasty attitude and no second date.

I'm old-fashioned and I still pay for 90% of the meals when we go out. But I eat more and drink alcohol (which is a big portion of the bill). She usually treats me on my birthday and father's day.

Same sex date, you got me there. I guess whoever asked out first or split.

Also age and status play into it as well. If you're older and make more money you really should pony up the bill. Unless the date was a complete disaster and they stab you with a fork.

Did you asked for the first date? then you should pay, plain and simple. What kind of cheap person will you come up as, if you go asking people on first dates and expect them to pay. Seriously think about it for a minute.

You asked for it, you pay for it. This is not a lunch with a friend, this is a date, right? As much as people love the idea of "half and half" and I know that plenty of women wouldn't be so opposed to it, paying for the experience leaves a good impression. If the other party insists you split the bill, ask if you have permission to pay for everything next time. What you should never do is get into an argument or one of those fucking stupid matches where both idiots are fighting to get the waiter to take their credit card. I cringe when I see adults do that in a restaurant.

Be civil, act natural. Don't be a stingy ass, pay for the meal, thank her for the time.
