Who should pay on a date?

Well, what do you think?

I've always been a fan of offering to pay for my date's meal one out of every two or three times. I always at least offer, and my date has usually been generous enough to insist on paying.

My girl friend is mad tonight because she was out for dinner with her boyfriend and they ended up getting in a little fight over the bill. The guy didn't want to pay, and eventually he said something along the lines of "If you want me the guy to pay for EVERY date, ALL the time, then I think you should start doing my cooking and laundry, because the first idea is just as antiquated as the second"

I thought that was so good! Serves greedy girls right haha.

For a first date to be fair i think it should be a split. you don't want to spoil the girl buy you don't want to be cheap and rude by not paying at all

I usually split the bill with my boyfriend, and it all works out from there.

actually the solution to this would be for everyone to stop being greedy.

Now that I think about it, its fine for maybe even the first several dates. However, for every date the guy has to pay for it? No way.

If a relationship becomes serious enough, all possessions shall be considered either pointless (in that they are interchangeable between the couple) or communal.

In the meantime, the person who asks the other person out usually is considered the one whom should pay.

Fuck me, I'm Mrs. Manners, ain't I?

If it early on the in the relationship I think going dutch is the way to go, weirdly I always end up paying anyway.

lol. That is a great response on his part. I always assume I'm paying, and only take her up on her offer to pay once in awhile.

i wouldn't date a guy a second time if he didn't pay for the first one...

Yeah, to Christine's point: I think the guy SHOULD pay for at least the first date. Call me old fashioned. The subsequent ones? Meh...depends on the connection I have with a girl more than antiquated notions of chivalry.
