No, of course not. That’s not ‘dating’. That’s taking advantage of someone who’s wanting to spend time with you and you letting them pay.

Of course he pays for me, but it’s a lot common now for a woman to do that, obviously it’s not nice but both are enjoying a nice meal together and chatting.

It's normal if you consider using someone for their time and leading them on to get a free meal the norm.

I for one think that's pretty disgusting

He's paying because he is being a gentlemen because he wants to be romantically involved and your using him. Imagine if someone was doing that to you

This is narcissistic emotional-prostitution and gold digging in a lesser form if you aren't a troll.

It depends, I would say that some guys may be ok it if they deem that the satisfaction they get from going out with an attractive woman is effectively worth the cost of a £25 dinner. Having said that, this is not such a commonly held opinion, and most individuals and general public morality would not subscribe to such way of thinking.

CORRECTION: I misread the original post. No, it is not acceptable behaviour and I do not encourage it.

In my experience this is true that guys won't mind paying bc of the satisfaction of being on a date with an attractive woman BUT it's only ok if you had a somewhat intention of carrying on seeing him, before the date.

What I mean is, if you decide it's not working and you don't want to continue dating this guy, he's not gonna be too upset that he payed for your meals if you let him down gently and tactfully/nicely, bc he had a nice time with you and it made him feel pretty good buying a meal for an attractive gal. But if you're going into dates KNOWING beforehand that you're not gonna see him again, just for the free food, then that's definitely crossing an ethical line.
