When you go on a date...

...Do you pay for everything?

It's been a while since I've had a real "date" date, where you have dinner and get to know each other, but when I did I'd usually pay.

It seems like there's this tradition that on dates, the man pays for everything. I like chivalry and all that good stuff, but that shit can get expensive. It's something I don't like, but I try to do reluctantly.

If she don't like that idea, she can buzz off.

Well assuming we're doing something fairly standard (a meal or the like) and we both seem actually interested, not just going on a date for fun, then I pay, yeah. Feels right. Plus it weeds out feminazis quickly.

We usually go back and forth, but first date I pay. If she can't handle it or sees it as some inferiority complex or sexist act instead of me being nice, she can go fuck herself.

I'd pay for all but then they feel bad and want to treat me, so why not? It seems fair to swap turns.

EDIT: We pay for our own shit usually, this is for like a movie date or dinner date or something.

For a while and if I like her enough then hopefully we'll both trade off and shit. I don't wanna pay for everything always. But the first few dates, yeah.

When it's a date to know each other or whatever, yes, I do pay.
With my girlfriend sometimes I pay everything, sometimes she does and sometimes we pay for our own food/movie tickets/drinks etc...

It's kind of just something that happens.

Since guys like to treat the first time, girls will want to keep shit going and the guy interested and thus say "next one's on me!". The guy, in return, will do the same for the third date, and so forth.

my first date with my gf we paid for our own meal. now it's a mix of splitting it and taking turns paying in full. though she probably ends up spending more money on things in general

Oh, I thought it was referring to one meal, like if one person gets something that's $5 and the other $15 then you both pay $10.

Basically this, I try to pay for the first date myself. Movie dates usually end up on us agreeing that I'll pay for the tickets and she'll get sodas/popcorn.

I "accidentally" forget to bring my wallet. Then she has to go back and wash dishes.
If they're not okay with that, I dont want to know them

Oh...

I'm not sure, maybe they did mean that

Nahh, I'm a take-turns kind of guy. I pay this meal, she pays next. I pick her up, she picks me up next time. I bumfuck her, she bumfucks me. It's all good.

Pay for your own shit, in general. An exception would be inviting her to an event or something that's not really that expensive then I'd pay for entrance like a club ticket.

I try to, but sometimes my girlfriend pays because she has a fulltime job. I simply can't afford to pay all the time. We end up doing a fair amount of free things anyway, so...

Whoever has money at the time pays. It's not often both of us will. If we do, we split it.
