Girl paying for a guys dinner

Is this acceptable? I always pay for our dinner when we go out, I pick him up and drive to where ever we go. But yet I can never pick a movie I wanna see or do something I want to do...Im fine with paying for dinner every now and then but everytime?

  • Next time he brings up dinner, ask "Is this one on you? If not I get to pick the movie."

  • That's probably the same thing 99.9% of the guys out there think.

  • I dont think you should have to pay everytime. There are times my boyfriend and I go out and I'll pay once and then he'll pay.. but we live together so we kinda share money.

  • Does he have no money?

    Eitehr way you do it- your way or the "traditional" way, I think that if both people are employed, both ought to occasionally pick up the tab for the couple. And it's always a good idea to alternate who picks the restaurant or movie

  • Sometimes he should treat you to the whole evening, dinner and the movie of your choice.

  • Is HE your SO,DH? Or just some guy you are dating?

  • i personally think a guy should pay if he asked you on the date but if its like a good friend who is male and ask if you want lunch or something like that i would say either split the bill or pay separately
