If she wants to pay for me every time, every time? I will call her my mama.
I’d feel kind of bad, because it’s just a date, so I’d pay for myself.
But if he’s my boyfriend.
I’d let him pay, but I would try to pay by myself too.
If the guy pays for my meal, I’d think he’s a gentleman who really likes me.
In Russia, the men want to pay.
Even my friends in Russia, if I want to pay, they’ll say ”why don’t you respect me?”
If I can afford to pay my date, of course I will.
But I don’t want her to take this for granted though.
Before, women were not allowed to work, so we didn’t have money, so we couldn’t pay anyway
Though nowadays, we do get to work and we do have money. We should be treated equal, therefore, we should also pay equally
and we have this famous saying “go Dutch”
meaning that we always pay for ourselves, like going on a date or spending time with friends, having a drink, going to a movie stuff like that.
In American culture, if a guy asks a girl out, then he should pay.
But hope girls can understand that we are not Donald Trump’s sons so, maybe order something with a reasonable price?
But if it’s your girlfriend, when you are on dates with her, you should pay.
But you guys are NOT on dates, you guys should go Dutch.
For example in my country, if a guy asks me out.
Usually the first date we will split (the bill)
Then the second time, maybe he will invite me, maybe the third time I will invite him so it always depends.
More if we are boyfriend-girlfriend, I’d let him pay more like more times.
But it’s not like I’ll let him (pay) all the time, I can invite him also.
I want to date a girl that can support me and I can support her. Not like I’m always supporting her or when there’s a special occasion, I’ll treat her.
But on the daily basis like everyday, every week date. Let’s just pay for ourselves.
So if I’ve been dating a guy and he insists paying on every date, maybe I’d allow him to on the first date, but I’d always like make sure he knows I can pay
and on the second date, we will obviously split down.
It’s common if it’s a first date, the guy would ask “Hey can I pay for you?”
But if the girl that expects I pay for her every single time...no one likes it.
If it’s my girlfriend, I’d try to invite her as much as I can.
But like I have so much trust in her but if I don’t have enough money I will let her know she has to invite me.
Few times is okay.
But I’d like to pay for our meal or movie or for example, it can be like you know, we go for a movie and then I buy popcorn.
Also like I said, it’s very important to know how financially independent he is.
He can afford it? or he can’t afford it, but he’s keep paying it and just not telling me how broke he is.
*So what would you guys do? Would you pay? Would you not pay?
