Who’s Paying for Dinner? by @OnlineDateCoach

When you go out with a guy to a restaurant for dinner, who should pay the check? Customarily the guy usually would be the one who’s paying for dinner but this is a new day and a new age; things have changed. Some people would say the girl should offer to pay for her half of the check and I would tend to agree.

So who’s paying for dinner on a date in the 21st century?

Girls, be prepared because you never know how a date will end up. You should always go on a date with the full intention of paying at least your half of the bill, if not the whole thing.

Offering to pay is always a good idea. If the guy says he’s got it, offer to leave the tip. Doing this will show him you are willing and able to cover your way and not expecting him to always pay for you.

Most men will pick up the entire amount though but do pay attention to how he approaches the situation; put the ball in his court and let him decide. Insisting to pay every once and a while keeps the relationship balanced as it progresses, and also puts less pressure on his wallet.

Tell me what you think about paying for the check.

Has a date ever asked you to pay before?

“Offering to pay is always a good idea. If the guy says he’s got it, offer to leave the tip. ”

I think that’s possibly the best way I’ve ever seen it put online. Nicely done.

Being a man thou I like to pay – but the tip idea is lovely.
