I'm not sure if this has been discussed before but..if you ever had a debate about this am sure it was serious and heated\nA man asks a woman out and she accepts. He ends up taking her on a date. They go to a fancy restaurant.They have fun eating and generally enjoying each other's company. Then the bill comes. He turns to her and says\n"So how are we gonna settle this?"\nThe woman is surprised and gives him her credit card, she tells him to do what he feels is right. She excuses herself and goes to the bathroom. Her date ends up using her credit card to pay for everything and she never goes out with him again.\nMy question is:\n1) On a date who pays? Does this only apply to a first date?\n2) Do you believe in going "dutch"\n3) What happened to the line "I'm Miss Independent"?\nThe person who asked the other person out should normally be ready to pay. Could be the boy or the girl but whoever came up with the suggestion should pay.\nThat reminds of one incident where someone took my friend out on a date. After they finished eating and time came to pay the bills, the guy dusted his wallet and was unable to pay the whole amount! Thank God my girl was holding some money, maybe she would have had to drop her shoes or wrist-watch as collateral\nAlthough, the person that ask one out should pay but in a situation where a lady asks a guy out,if the guy is man enough,he should be the one to pay.\npaying for the bills at the restaurant table is a clear indication that you as a man\u00a0 can man the house. on the other hand if the woman offers to pay she should not be taken advantage of but rather be seen as a lover ready and willing to support.
