Who Pays on a Date?

Thumper Logic Thumper Logic
So you go on a mutually agreed date. Who pays? Call me old-fashioned, but if I'm on a date and the submissive half, I expect the more dominant person to take charge of the check....

I think whoever issues the invitation should pay. Even when I am invited I usually offer to pay my own way.

With my partner living overseas, it kind of works like this... whoever flies in doesn't pay for food on dates, because they're already paying for the flight. But, for more ordinary situations? I don't expect my date to pay for my own meal. I always offer to pay, and I'm not offended at all if my date chooses to let me pay.

When I'm working, I offer to pay my half... so he doesn't think I owe him a damn thing.
I'm reluctant to go on dates since I'm jobless and always ensure he means he's covering it beforehand, so we're not stuck in an awkward situation.

Back when we went on dates prior to living together (at which point ALL expenses were combined) it was just about whoever had the most left over after bills.

The man better at least offer or I'll think he's rude. I usually will go out of my way to try and pay for my own things everytime, even though my partner and I have been together 6 years, I still do that. However, if he can't even be a gentleman and offer, then I'd assume he wouldn't even be gentleman enough to open my door. Which by the way, my partner does do both every single day. He was just telling me tonight to stay in the car, he wanted to come "get" me out. He always insists on paying when we go out.

My fiance usually offers, but I prefer to split it. If we go to dinner and the movies, I'll pay for one and he'll pay for the other.

I think splitting it is best. Nothing like feeling obligated to do something because someone paid for dinner/movie/coffee/et c.

I wouldn't date anyone who insisted I pay for everything just because I'm the guy.

I like a combination of splitting and he treats and she treats. I feel weird when a guy never lets me contribute at all! I wish there were more guys my age who felt the way you do.

I believe that whoever invites pays. Doesn't matter if it's a date or just an outing with friends.

We go back and forth. I paid the time before, and he paid last time. I'm paying for dinner later this week.

Generally we pay our share, but I let people pay for me if they insist. I generally have more monetary concerns than the people I date, so I rarely if ever pay for their share of things.

I'm in a long distance relationship and basically whoever's visiting gets treated and it's worked out pretty nice. When we both go home from college then we each pay for an aspect of the date, like one day he'd pay for the movie and I'd pay for the dinner and the next day we'd switch it up.

i pay one time, he pays the next time. We keep track of how much we owe each other but we never really exchange money with each other.

He prefers to pay, I think, but sometimes I pay too. Really it just depends on who has the money.
