I mean do you think when you go on a day one should pay or the both split the bill?Be it the woman or man who pays. What are your thoughts on this.

if we're talking about going out the first time or first date,it is preferable that men pay the bill.it would be very disappointing if your date would asked you to split the bill on your first date.this will definitely create a negative impression.and if i will be into such situation,i'll make sure not to see that man again.

First date I think is a generous must for guys.

I don't believe in going dutch. When the bill comes for dinner, a gentleman will pick it up and take care of it right away. It helps to show that he is generous and cares about someone other than himself. And it shows that he has a job:) It's different if the daters are young or have limited resources, of course.

On the first few dates I think that is true for me. After awhile though I would chip in buy insisting that I pay for something.

I really think that it depends, to some extent, on the couple involved. But I personally think that going dutch is a really good idea. It seems only fair that each person pay for their share of the date. I would of course being female love to have the man always offer to pay for the date himself*laugh* Hut that really isn't fair*laugh* So I think that going dutch is the best option. It seems to make more sense than any other option that I can think of.

It is nice to have a guy pay. I would sometimes feel bad that my hubby, when we first started dating, always paid.

I guess it should be whatever each of you want. I have been married for 16 years and sometimes I feel guilty when my husband pays, so I pay. I don't know why as it the same money.

When I put my card down to pay my hubby doesn't like it even though the money is coming out of the same account.
