(So who is going to pay for this…?)
Does the man or woman pick up the tab on the first date? That question has been debated for a very long time. I’ve heard majority say that the man should pay; I’ve heard people say that they should split the bill;
I’ve even heard people say that they should pay for their own tab. One thing I have never heard anyone say is that the woman should pay. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer to the question above; I do believe this is something that should be agreed upon before going out.
You have to be on the same page with your date. A few years ago I went out with someone and we weren’t on the same page, here is what happened.
I had a date with someone I just met a couple of weeks prior. She wanted to go to this Mexican restaurant in her neighborhood.
I was cool with the idea, because I love Mexican food. We sat down at the restaurant and received our menus. I let her order first. I always prefer for my dates to order first.
But on this particular date I wanted her to order first to see how much she would order. I was on a tight budget that night and I needed to prepare my order accordingly. She ordered some meal and I ordered a couple of tacos. We ate and after a while the check came.
I sat there waiting to see what her move was. She reached into her purse and I’m thinking “Yes, we are going to split the tab!” Well, I was wrong because she pulled out some makeup. I paid for our meals that I had just enough to pay for and that concluded our dinner night.
