The dating game: should he pay for the first date? 

It’s the awkward moment at the end of the date when the check comes. In an era of strong independent women, should you let him pay for the first date? A highly debated topic, there’s a lot of factors that come into play here. Who asked who out? Where are you eating? Should you split the bill? 

If a girl is asking a guy on a date, she should be prepared to pay the bill. Just the same, if the guy is doing the asking out. Don’t forget to pick a restaurant where you are comfortable paying.

If he initiates the date, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t offer to split the bill. Even if he says no or declines your offer, it’s still a nice way to show that you aren’t assuming anything. Have a conversation about it, and don’t let it be an awkward silence.

It might seem outdated to have him pay for you, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t nice to feel treated to a meal and hopefully an awesome date!
