Well in my experience, some guys like to, although I feel a bit guilty sometimes letting them. Other times its 50/50. I prefer that actually. Although one time I dated this guy and he turned up on a date completely skint, so I had to pay, so it was like bye bye to him. So I think it depends- like if it was a big bill , pay something towards it as its not exactly fair to expect him to pay for it all but if its not too expensive and he wants to pay, go with the flow.

If the guy invited, then he pays. If no invitation but just a meeting and later BOTH decided AND AGREED to go for a meal, Ladies~choose inexpensive menu-del-dia as you may have to go 50-50. If he offered to pay, just let him. This happened only lately and I got the tirade later of having to drive a long way just and more insults for a cheap 4 course meal. I think he was a closet alcoholic PERSOANLITY QUICKLY CHANGING as he ordered wine and drank a bit only while I drank non-alcoholic Fanta orange. When on a date or a meeting, be prepared to have money in hand yourself. If the guy DO NOT HAVE ANY MONEY TO PAY and you have insight or a hint on that, just go for coffee and bid BYE BYE let him not appear again PLEASE making sure you have not left any forwarding home address info. I always am so bold to ask always in advance if he was treating me is just fare as my time is being lent that is a bit mercenary and draconian. That is how the cookie crumbles. I had an encounter like that~ OHhhh this guy wanted to do the right thing BUT HE SAID HE FORGOT HIS CREDIT CARD!!!!! from Lancaster Pennsylvania trip to Washington DC as I wanted to visit my landlady. The guy is penniless and looking for someone to gold dig having just been done in by his live-in fiance who emptied his house of contents including fixtures while he was on away business trip to Europe.

I always pay but the "rules" say that whomever instigated the date should pay. This was on a list I saw recently that also said, you can re-gift items, but never gift them to someone who knows the person that gave you the gift in the first place. I had an awkward Christmas moment this year when my business partner's wife gave her mother, among other things, a watch I brought for her from Italy while I was there. Personally, I'm happy it'll be used, but it was embarrasing for her (I played it off as best I could, pretending not to see because her grandmother was recounting something about the early 1900's to me at the time).

SS - If I believe he doesn't have to worry about money then I let him pay. If I think he's probably not "rolling in it" then I offer to cover the tip. If it's a date out of a comedy/horror movie then I offer 50/50 (no obligations) and pretend I'm not feeling well, gotta go home! LOL Alexiaa - You're too tiny and couldn't possibly handle that many lunches/dinners.....you can just hand them over to me! Ha! Cheers!

This idea of man paying for everything, is wonderful and very romantic, and it feels nicer and better if the man pays it is a matter of pride and tradition,I won't let some lady pay for me... But unfortunately times have changed, women are in the work force, and exceptionally they get to make a lot more money than the guys!so it's no longer a big deal if they like to pay for whatever?! a dinner or more!It should be no longer a big deal in this day and age...Specially if those ladies happen to be an honest to goodness millionaires.
