A friend of mine always like to invite me or other friend for drink or sometimes lunch/dinner but she always expect us to pay the bill. Shouldn't she pay for the bill since she invited us ? If I invite, I will always pay the bill. What do you think?

You are right. Your friend should pay the bill because she invited you. Otherwise, next time, it's better not to join anymore if you don't have enough money or you are on a budget. It's okay also if from the start you agreed to share then that would be fine.

In my experience, if someone invites they pay unless it is agreed up front that we are "going Dutch" (paying for our own). I went to dinner with a friend not too long ago and I was ready to pay for my own and she said no way because she had invited me. I think if your friend wants to have someone else pay the bill she should wait for you to invite her. Have a great week!!!

when me and my friends hang out each of us always pay our own bill... i don't know any rule that said the one that invites is the one that pay the bill, plus i don't want to feel that i owe someone for paying me something.

No, you shouldn't pay all the time. Next time, just take out your share of the bill and pass it over to her to settle the rest.
