Say a guy asks you out on a date but when it came to paying the bills he wanted you to pay your share as well? Would that be ok with you? I'm just curious to know as if it makes a girl like you more then I'd be happy to pay for all of it, however I actually feel that "going dutch" is the fairest way personally.

The answer they will give you is no though we all know what they mean is yes. This 2 faced persona people have is sad.

Good filler for those awkward silences on a first date:

You: "Say... did you know that making a girl laugh is the second best way to get her into bed?"
Her: "Oh, really? What's the best way?"
You: "A huge kitchen knife!!"
Her: *Laughs*
You: "Wise choice..."

It all depends!

'Let's grab food' is very different to 'I'd love to take you out tonight'

Also, no matter what. If you make me pay 'my share' I will slay you. Halvsies. Always. I get very cross when it's in a big group and everyone works out exactly what they ate/drank. Just split it evenly!

I prefer going halves. I'd feel guilty if the guy paid for all of it.

If a girl feels like she is being 'unfairly treated' and resents you all because you didn't pay for her meal/tickets/etc. that is a good sign. Why? Well it then becomes easier to spot the proverbial bullets coming your way, thus even more possible to dodge them. If anything, one should be thanking these incredibly entitled girls for showing their true colours so early on.

I will usually go to a nice but not too expensive bar and not drink that much. I'll pay if I think it will be a factor but if she doesn't at least offer to pay half or get the next then it'll be a hit and quit.

Hell who am I kidding, it'll never be more than a hit and quit

Lol how can women want equal rights then expect a guy on a date (who is most likely a stranger) to pay for their share of food?

People would like to say no, but deep down they really think yes.
