Paying the Bill on a First Date
Years ago it was almost compulsory for the man to pay the bill on the first date, or any date. We are now living in a world of equality, and the old traditions when it comes to dating may no longer apply.
At the end of the date when it comes time to pay it can be an awkward situation as there are no certain rules about who should pay, and people can worry about offending the other person by doing the “wrong” thing.
