For dates?  Always Dutch. Take turns? Boy always pays? Whoever asks the other one pays?

Are we talking teens, a married couple. A couple just dating?

I'm a big believer in girls paying their own way on dates.

Hmmm, hadn't thought about that....

i didnt mean just teens and I didn't mean married and sharing money. 

Just datin, not necessarily just started dating though.

I always try to pay even if I'm out with friends though. I know most have it harder than me so if I can pay it all I will. They have other things to save their money for I'd rather they keep it.

Even when I can't afford to pay for everyone's, I just feel awkward about someone else paying.

I feel like when going out on initial dates that each individual should pay for themselves, or at least expect to pay for themselves, but if one or the other picks up the tab... That's fine too. I don't feel like one is more obligated to pay than the other.
