Who should take the tab on the first date? And what does it mean?

We’ve all been on atleast one date. And it was probably a coffee shop or dine out or movie or something. Traditional ‘dating rules’ say the guy must bear the damages. But with changing times, is this rule changing too?It’s just a bill – not about life and death – but people do judge and what we do in certain situations can give out signals.What do you think? What did / would you do?

  1. If it’s the first date, I would rather go dutch. Simply because on the first date, both of you are judging each other. It’s natural, let’s admit it. So why have any obligation? If the first date leads to more dates, I wouldn’t mind if the man pays occasionally 🙂
