Default Should Guys Still Pay For First Dates?


Since men and women are equal nowadays, shouldn't everyone be splitting the first date bill without any awkwardness? I like his system though, especially the red flag.

It depends on what the girl looks like!

Of course, if it's 2 guys, they should split the check!

I haven't had a date in over 35 years but if I asked a woman out I would pay for everything.

OK so I did not make it through the entire video but I will say that before I met my wife about five years ago when I was dating I can't remember one woman not offering to at least split the check, I said "its OK' and they all let me pick it up with the exception of one where we went dutch, I wasn't going to argue with her about it.

Meh, I still do but it is a learning lesson, if I am having fun its a first date and shes nice and deserves it, then I will pay it. If she is awful, split it by mentioning it to the waiter/waitress/bartender. If there just isn't a connection, I will pay and take it as a learning lesson and not schedule anything further. Cost of doing business. Just money.

I usually just take them for drinks. If its working out I say let's get food. That way she isn't hungry when we're smashing

She still deserves a "protein shake" after busing her food off though...

When did men and women become equal? Long way to go yet, long long way.

BR you ain't right

If I ask a young lady out on a date, I pay.

My mom would get out of her grave and come slap me in the face if I ask a lady to pay for a date.

Was sitting in a group of people one time and jokingly said if I pay for dinner I expect sex. Then I asked a hot girl in the group if she wanted to go eat. She said yes! We headed to out.........
