Not so much a question of advice, but I think it's applicable:
When you are on a date, are guys expected to pay for the expenses (i.e. Dinner or movie?) Or do you go Dutch?
It depends, usually I'll split with my girlfriend unless it's a really fancy place and I'm treating her. Sometimes I'll pay for a meal and she'll pay for the next one. My girlfriend lost her job recently so I paid when we went out earlier this week, and when I first started dating her I paid for dinner dates, however they were/are usually $30 or less. The most I've paid for both of us is $50 and we've been dating for a few months, we go out about 2 times a week.
It's way more common these days to split it. Especially at the early stages. Or if you do pay for something, so ask if they got it next time. Just don't ever force them to pay for everything. I don't think many people will complain if you do pay for everything though.
i direct you to the immortal wisdom of the notorious B.I.G.- "biggie dont give a bitch enough to catch the bus"
seriously. dont pay for a girl you havent known very long unless you want to be taken for a fool
The basic rule is whoever invites pays.
If you have further dates, the invitee should offer to pay some of the time. Rather than going dutch, which can get complicated, most couples get into a pattern of alternating paying.
If one is significantly "richer" than the other, then the poor one should find other ways of balancing things, like occasionally cooking a meal.
This is the only correct answer but OP will probably ignore it because having to ask in the first place implies that he is totally fucking lost.
it. doesn't matter who asked out who or any of that bullshit. women aren't chained to the oven any more. if they can go out and earn their own income, they can sure as hell pay for their own meals.
i pay for my own shit until we're in a relationship. i never want someone to feel like i "owe" them. i don't feel comfortable with someone paying for my stuff until we know each other very well
