I would insist on paying half anyways, on the first, second and third date and would continue until we are officially an item. guys get too fucking entitled, thinking cause they paid for dinner they are onto something...no homie, i dictate my own terms.
Cool with me. Its better that way. A friend of mine went out on a date with a guy whom offered to pay. When the check was due, he went to the bathroom and never returned. She had no choice but to pay that night.
I would not care. It does not bother me.
IF I am asked out to eat it is different. I would not plan on paying.
But if we just end up eating somewhere sure. I like to be treated to dinner, but I also like to treat people to dinner. I also like paying half and half. I know some girls that ALWAYS want to be paid for, if you don't you would have to deal with this.
op, if you are the one that asked me out, I expect you to pay. Even if you ask me later to go half, I will not be impressed with you. I'm sorry, but that is just how it works. Pay for the first few dates and if you want to establish a relationship, she can start chipping in. Why is that so hard?
I pay the whole thing, toss you $20 in the air (in ones) cuz you prolly need gas money too, and sarcastically ask you if your broke ass needs to hold something while twirling out the door to NeverseeingyouagainL and.
