    Hmm, I definitely am rethinking things now, due to this video.

      Maybe I will split the bill on first dates going forward. What do you think?

        I think it's the temperature of the date itself. Usually, if he insists, and I like spending time with him, then I'll say something "I'll get dessert." For me, I think it expresses my interest in him further and that I'm not unwilling to contribute to this date too.

    Split. We want equality so this comes with the territory. Of course, it's always nice when a man insists on paying but this should not be a given

      I definitely agree! Whenever anyone goes out on a date, they should always be prepared to pay for their own half.

    I totally agree with him ... especially for long term relationships. However, women are still paid less than men and women have to spend so much more on self care and put way more time into getting ready for dates (manicure, pedicure, waxing, etc) - so in the beginning I really do think men should pay...I'm not saying women shouldn't offer and of course there are always exceptions like if you make more than the person you're dating etc but generally speaking I feel strongly that we don't have that many advantages in society so maybe they could at least pay for a drink and/or some food...

      It's definitely nice! I do feel that eventually it would put a financial strain on them
