Who Pays for Dinner?

Joan Jerkovich - July 27, 2015 2:56 pm

It was a casual invitation to dinner but she wanted more. She wanted to at least feel that she was being courted, but when the check arrived the dance of “who’s going to pay for dinner” ensued.

Being a progressive young career woman, Lauren offered to split the check. Her dinner date happily agreed. There have been more dinner dates over the past month with the all-too-familiar dance of “who’s going to pay”? Sometimes they split the check; at other times they take turns paying.

When I asked Lauren if her girlfriends help pay for their dates, she explained how they all seem to approach this dilemma differently. Some expect the guy to pay for all the first dates until they are officially a couple. Others, like her, don’t have problems taking turns paying.

What do you think? Who do you think should pay for dates?

DATING is the topic for “The Joan Jerkovich Show” this weekend. Listen for discussion on “Signs You Have Chemistry”, and “Why Chemistry Is Important To Your Relationship”, and for a discussion on whether or not you should “Continue Dating When There’s NO Chemistry”.

I’m an independent sort, but I believe that the person who does the asking (whether they’re male or female) should pay for the first date. If they agree to go out again, they should take turns picking up the tab, or at the very least, the woman should offer to help pay for dinners out. She can always make sure he pays for the fine dining while she picks up the tab at Wendy’s?! Lol
