I've just seen enough people let go for expense violations that I believe it's one of those things you don't mess with. @OP, just tell him you can't expense two meals anymore, so he'll have to split the checks going forward. If he drifts away you know.

Ok back to the post ques. Yes I have didn't work out. I was just looking for a hook up and once I was done with the satiating part I really didn't want to complicate my life. Also I just wasn't that into them. The guys were too clingy afterwards.

It doesn't work like that... either you're on per diem, in which case he's taking your money, or you're expensing actuals, in which case paying for some random dude is expense fraud

Met on bumble. Was looking for something casual but ended up getting along really well and we were having a lot of fun together for about a month. Things seem a little different now even though the effort is still mutual. He hasn't paid for a single meal because I can usually cover it but the new attitude is throwing me off and making me second guess everything.
