Someone told me that it is common is Latin American culture for guys to pick up the check each time. I like this chick. But the fact that she doesn't even try to pay the check annoys me. She's hot.

Most women expect you to get the check until you start dating and then split. If they don't offer to split once you're dating, have a serious talk with her about it and how it makes you feel, if she balks and laughs at you, ditch her

I once dated an Aussie who wanted to go out BIG 4 or 5 nights a week. Concerts, plays, 4 star dinners. When I asked her to start sharing the costs, she said, "Those who can't afford to date, shouldn't date." She obviously could not afford to date so I dumped her.

The next woman I dated offered to pay on our first date (although I picked it up). I married her.

I thought our custom also dictates that the guy pays, every time? Or is that just here in the South 🤔

I expect the guy to intend to pay but I always split the check unless he insists seriously.

My husband still pays when we go out on special dates. Some people are raised that way, and I ain't complaining. When we just go out to grab a casual bite, we take turns paying.

I always offer but generally feel the guy should at least pay for date #1. I know it's old fashioned and kind of stupid but I feel like it shows he appreciates me

Just have a conversation about it.

I'm latin, first dates is man pays. After it becomes regalular dating, its expected that its 50-50

Dated a girl who wouldn't split with me. We ended up breaking up. Wasn't only an issue of splitting checks..she held double standards everywhere.

D4 no joint checking?

@A3 Nope

@A2 someone could also raise the argument that it's old fashioned that women get paid less in the work force 😐

Pay the bill.
