    It's better to half the bill
    Halve,* and it's generally expected of the guy to offer to pay e.g. at least initially, on the first date, at least :scrooge:

    We usually go halfsies, but if one of us pays for one meal, the next time the other has to foot it. That being said I think I owe my boyfriend about six lunches at this point...

    Nope. I never make my boyfriend pay. We usually just pay for our own stuff unless we want to treat each other every so often.

    I insist on paying on a first date. I feel like the girl offers to go halves out of politeness but deep down would rather the male pay.

    I think dividing the bill is the fair thing to do, however, as a note on etiquette, the man attempting to pay the bill but the woman offering to pay half for the man to agree is a good way to overcome tradition.

    Thanks for the correction?

    Nahhh course not... double standards if you do!
    I'd offer to pay my half and his if i liked him
    But in general, i think going halvsies is acceptable for both parties

    You're welcome

    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I'm quite cunning/rarely wow'ed by dates, so I tend to say something leading like: 'shall we get the bill'? If they don't offer to pay at that juncture then I'll go ahead and go through the motions of paying, and if they don't jump in and offer to pay at least some, if not half, well then that's a big -1 (unless they're fairly skint, which is never the case) :naughty:

    I've always just split the bill :dontknow:
    You're a good girl, but there are some women out there who are super traditional and/or spoilt and/or presumptious :rolleyes:

    Ah okay,in all honesty I always thought you were pretty impressed with your dates from what you've told me etc

    I'm traditional too but not in that sense,when it comes to marriage and the idea of getting married. That's when I'm super traditional

    I take girls to usually the best restaurants I can find so I don't blame them for not wanting to pay half.

    No, tbh I don't see why girls expect guys to pay. Splitting the bill is more fair, I do that with my friends as well

    Most impress on some level, but never yet dated a girl who could inspire me to great acts of generosity and romance :dancing:

    Best of both worlds

    Speaking of dating, and different worlds, should you wish to be accompanied by a gentleman companion of the tall, blonde persuasion, this one'll be in London for near enough a week as of next Mon/Tues
