I used to buy my date's dinner, but then one girl bought like $90 worth of stuff for dinner (meanwhile I spent $25), so now it's seperate bills or Dutch.

Btw, I am agree with rajaa, it's better to date someone in a situation where it does not matter who pays for the bill.

Splitting the bill evenly every time can come across as a bit callous.

What usually happens with me is we switch off. Sometimes I'll buy, sometimes she will, sometimes we'll just throw some money down depending on how much we can spare at the time, and it tends to all even out in the end.

I'm not a fan of trading money for sex but I am a fan of trading money for sushi.

If I invite someone to my house for dinner, I can spend several hours preparing and cleaning up after, I'd guess average $60 for ingredients and probably $20-30 for wine, I do not present them with a bill for half, so if someone invites ME to dinner, I don't expect to pay half either.  Yeah yeah, I havent had a date since woolly mammoth was roadkill, but whatever happened to proper etiquette?  Do I need to change my name to Miss Manners?

Are you saying this because people who invite you at their place present you with a bill ? Has anyone here said anything about inviting someone at their place and presenting a bill ?
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

Splitting bills is awkward. You pay first date, she pays second. It evens out.


In M.U.G.E.N there is no magic button

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

Rajaa would.

How is inviting a date to dinner at my house where I've spend hours cooking and about $80 on food and wine different from a date inviting me to a restaurant for dinner?  Money was spent both times, why should I (the woman) be expected to cook and clean and ....

ah, nevermind.

Its context.
You never invite people to your home to present them with bills.
And you never have dates at home, normally people dont do that.
Whereas going out on a date implies you are knowing the other person better, but not enough that you are inviting them home, where you are HOSTING a meeting.

Theres a huge difference between being a host and going on a date.

Is finding MUGEN to be more enjoyable to play when you're not wearing clothes an underrated opinion?

Meh, for me it varies.
If I'm in a good mood and I like her enough alot, sure.  I don't mind paying.
However, if this is just a average 1st date, then we'd probably split the bill.

So it's not a date if I invite someone to my house?
