When on a date, do you think the man should pay or split in half?
It depends on who asked who out. You shouldn't ask anyone out on a date unless you are prepared to pay. After a couple have been seeing each other for awhile then there is no hard rules. Some couples take turns paying for dates.
I believe the gentleman needs to pay on this first date. After that, any one can pay.
Whether one is obliged to pay or not depends on who asked who out. If I ask someone to meet me on a date or otherwise I pay the bill. When someone asks me out too I pay the bill fully or my part of it as I do not like to feel indebted to anyone. I don't want anyone to expect favors from me just because they paid a bill. Having said that, I think a man should pay the bill (or at least offer to pay the full bill) on a date.
It's my opinion that a man ought to pay if he invited the woman out and is intent on courting her. Now as the relationship progresses, I don't think there's anything wrong with a woman picking up the tab every now and then or helping a man out financially as long as she isn't feeling used and vice versa.
If he's wanting to give a good impression and show his chosen one he's sincere in pursuing her, he should pay. I've just answered this question by posting a Hub on this topic today too, hope it helps, best wishes.
I definitely think in the case of a first date the man should pay- it's just basic chivalry and a bad sign if he's not willing to fork out for the first date. Plus most first dates are usually a few drinks and nibbles- hardly a weekend in Paris.
As you progress however I think it's no harm to split bills as you become a partnership but I do think that in the early days, he should pay.
I think split the bill~if neither are actually in a relationship, no-one really should pay the bill outright, But some men can be "gentleman" and won't let you pay. Then let him but don't lead him on.
Perhaps I;m a bit too traditional ... But I say let the man pay ... Since he more than likely initiated the date .... Let him pay .... If the woman initiates then she would probably be willing to pay or planned on paying .... But other than that ... Let the men be men ... Far too many young women today are far too willing to let guys they're interested in be passive in the paying department and many other areas !!

usually, we face this dilemma. In the repationship, boyfriend doesn't work , so his girlfriend shoud pay all the time they go out and eat somewhere. Or, boyfriend earns enough money , so his girlfriend completely doesn't care how much he spends and saves each month, and she doesn't even feel bad...

what is this new thing going on in the dating world where a man asks a woman out on a date and then wants her to pay half of the bill. It's not about the money, it's the fact that he asked her out on a date, she took the time to get dressed up. For me that would be the last date, but...
