Yeah I usually did, and I liked to. When we were still dating though, my wife (then girlfriend obviously) would sometimes pay.

If I can pay for everything, I do. Most of the time, that isn't the case as I'm not made of money.

Well seeing as I haven't been on a date in years, I'll have to make the move and ask the girl out. General rule is that if you invite someone to do something, you pick up the bill. If she offers then I guess I could let her pay half. If she invites me, then I would expect her to pay.

Most of the time I pay for both of us. She should be prepared to pay for herself and not expect me to drop the dime. Also if its her idea to go out rather than do something cheaper, I'm more inclined to let her pay for herself(and me too if it really wasnt in my budget).

Ehh depends on the situation. I have a girlfriend of two years, when we go out it's usually "whoever has money pays." Usually I pay, she tips, but sometimes I pay for everything, and sometimes we split. If it's a first date, I'd say pay for everything for sure.

In my experience, if you introduce that idea to a girl, she'll get used to it, and freak the **** out if you ever ask her to split the bill.

When I'm not in a relationship, yeah every time. I'm all about equality and respect, but there is a part of me that's still chivalrous. And most women still like to be treated that way from time to time.

Now I'm in a relationship and whoever instigates the eating out usually end up paying. Sometimes I still feel a bit weird about that but meh. We have about equal salaries so it's fair enough really.

I was on a sort-of-but-not-really-a-date a few weeks back, and I would've paid for her despite it not really being a date, but she ordered a veggie burger so fuck that. I think that that's fair: never pay for the other person if they don't order any meat (unless it's cheese pizza or pasta).

It depends. First date, I won't pay for her. I'm not going to pay for and then never have her call me again(it's happened).

In a relationship, it's usually down to whoever has the money at the time, and some sort of balance(I paid last time, she pays this time, ect.).

I also don't get the idea of chivalry when it comes down to paying for the date. That might have worked in the 50s when many women didn't work, and the ones who didn't didn't make as much as men, but it makes no sense now. All the other crap is pretty dated too, but I do it because it's pretty much expected of me.

My general rule of thumb for first dates is that the burden to pay is on the person who asked. So if the fella asked me out on a date, he pays. If I ask the fella out on a date, I pay.

Unless it was previously agreed upon to just pay our own ways. Anyways, its worked for me so far. Ive done my fair share of paying and ive also been treated a lot as well. Most my dates arent exactly conventional, though. And they hardly ever involve a bill or cost, so its usually irrelevant.

I always use to pay for everything whenever I could. My mum use to get annoyed at this, but it just felt nice being able to take her out and her not have to worry about getting her purse out for the evening.

Fika is the shit. Always do those initially, except on my very first date.

I offer to pay some times, it depends o the girl and the situation. Sweden is pretty PC when it comes to gender equality, so you might come off as chauvinistic if you offer to pay. It depends on the situation, like I said.

This is very true. I tend to save up for special dates with my gf, so then I can take her out somewhere nice. So, really a guy should pay for things occasionally after the first date too.

I pay for all of it, everytime. I don't ask, and I've never had a woman be upset or object. To be fair though, talking to me for 10 minutes, you'd see that I'm not someone who rubs well with those ultra feminazi women.

Now if a gf insisted on treating me, I would accept. Actual dates though it really isn't up for discussion
