This is true where I am from. The key here is offer to pay. He should not assume I am going to pay and I do not date Deutch. I know a lot of women who say they don't want a man to pay for them but I am old fashioned. I prefer to be wined and dined.

Your first pitch of woo shouldn’t be volleyed just as she’s unhitching her seat belt or fumbling for apartment keys. In fact, the post-dessert stroll is a fine time for romantic hand-holding.

wise points. I think it is customary, so why take a chance..........its usually wont be a big bill.

Please do not talk about your ex on your first date. We really don't want to hear it on the first date. We will get to that later in the relationship if it goes that far. Just enjoy each other on the first date.

This really depends on the person you are dating. I rarely date strangers so I know the person I am dating very well usually. I know their situation and if we are in similar working situations I may not assume he will pay. If I know he can afford and it is just being cheap then he will never date me again. You really have to take into context what is going on at the time.

I have had women offer to take me out and pay for dates. I don't see anything wrong with this. Yes if I meet a woman and ask her out I am going to offer to pay but women are asking guys out to dates more and more these days so they should be prepared to pay also.

Yes we do expect you to offer. Some of us are still use to the way our mothers were courted.

I have found that it depends on the woman. I have gotten into some deep conversation trying to pay or not pay. You must read the person you are with and you know whether they are presumably dominant or submissive.

Even to this day when me and my wife go out she expects me to pay. She will even give me her money so that I am seen paying for everything. She is too old fashioned sometimes.

I am still old fashioned I would like to pay for the meal also. If she persists and it starts to turn into a problem then we can definitely split it. I do not think I have ever let a woman pay for me.

The man should always offer to pay. There are some traditions that we need to keep alive. The men need to cherish the woman and treat them with the up most respect.

If he is nice and looks good he can buy me a happy meal and I would not mind. Too much is put on money these days I feel. Some have it some don't does not make one better than the other.

If I offer to take you out you can leave your purse at home. I do feel that if a woman is pursuing a guy and she asks him out on a date she should not expect for him to pay for her. He should at least be able to cover for himself.
