    Should guys pay when on dates?

    I'm old fashion and will always pay though my bro is the opposite and says he never pays and thinks i'm a sucker!!

    I sorter feel it's almost like i have to in the moment. Thoughts?

    Traditional mores say that men should pay while on a date.
    I'm all for paying. If I'm into you, then I'm going to flatter you, whether it's when going on a date, picking up Taco Bell on the way over, or just picking her up a toy or some cute shit for her. Gonna flatter her.

    Regardless, I don't think guys should be obligated to pay. But I myself will always pay.

    In my mind, the person who asked the other should at least offer to pay. They initiated the date, so they should be willing to be responsible for it. Otherwise, it should be each party paying for themselves. I don't think a guy should feel obligated to pay for a date just because he's male.

    bacchus nailed it - if you initiate the date it would probably be polite to pay, esp if it's to somewhere expensive.

    but otherwise i think it's better to pay separately so that nobody feels like they owe or are owed anything!

    (although honestly i love to spoil and be spoiled, so if you offer to pay i'm never gonna say no unless i feel like you've been taking the brunt of paying for dates)

    I agree with this 100%.

    50-50 is fair in my opinion which me and my girlfriend do. If you wanna go on the date... fine, but don't expect someone else to pay your way otherwise you'll just fall into the same pattern of one person paying all the time and that's unfair.
