As a guy, a big believer in guys paying for the first date. Always is nice when the girl offers to pay her share as well. BUT I honestly don’t understand how a girl can go through a date and not..

If you believe guys should pay for dates then I’m not sure why you would want a girl to offer. Would you rather they offer with no intention of paying just to appease you? It is strange that’s she didn’t say thank you though. I’ve usually just said “thank you for dinner it was lovely.” or something like that.

It should not matter who asked who out. If she said yes then that means she wants to be there as much as the guy who asked her. He shouldn’t have to owe her for her time

Not saying thank you does seem like an issue, but since you said everything else was perfect I would consider one more date and see what happens. If it happens again you probably want to walk away , but it’s hard enough to find compatible people...

It’s only hard to find compatible people if you aren’t a compatible person.

Some people won’t compromise, and it’s why single people are happy and lonely, but married people are miserable and accompanied.

Maybe she was nervous and forgot and now has lots of anxiety for not saying thank you

When I have a date normally I say thanks if he pays but if I offer to share the bill and actually pay for it, for me it means I'm not into the guy!

Rudeness is never the norm. If you’re paying, she should say thanks. Not that difficult.

Offer to pay OR say thank you.. I had a date recently where everything was perfect until the end where I noticed the girl didn’t offer/acknowledge the bill.. and she didn’t even say thank you.

I am a girl and I always shared the bill...and I would definitely say thank you if he paid. So maybe the girl is not for you!

I agree that a simple thank you would be nice. This is why I always choose coffee or drinks for the first date or two. You can weed out the girls that are worth it without spending too much money.

I guess my main problem is when a girl doesn’t acknowledges the bill or says thank you.. Not sure how normal that’s becoming

Of course I always say thank you. I'm appreciative anytime someone spends time with me and treats me well.

It's absolutely NOT normal for someone not to say thank you. That's just trashy.

Why would I offer to pay? After all, I’m sure you’re the one who asked her out.
