So, you've landed yourself a hot date, and now you're wondering, "who the heck should pay for this?" Let me tell you, the answer is simple: Split it for the first date, or offer to pay if you had a really nice time. Never expect to be paid for. Look, we all know dating can be expensive. And if you're like me, you've probably spent a small fortune trying to impress a potential boo. But here's the tea: it's not just one person's responsibility to foot the bill. We're all grown adults here, and we should act like it. So, if you're going on a first date, just split it. Trust me, it'll save you the headache and awkwardness of trying to figure out who should pay. Now, if your date was absolutely fabulous and you want to treat him to a little something extra, then by all means, offer to pay. But don't expect him to pay for you. That's not fair, honey. Plus, it's just not a good look. And here's another thing: if you're the one who did the inviting, you should offer to pay. It's just good manners. But if your date insists on paying, and you really want to split it, offer to pay again. If he insists twice, then go ahead and split it. But don't make a big deal out of it. Remember, the point of the date is to have fun and get to know each other, not to argue about who's paying for what. Of course there may some exceptions here. If he's a bottomlessly wealthy European prince and you're unemployed and the first date involves dining and gold-wrapped truffles and A5 wagyu, then no matter how bbad the date goes, you're not splitting that shit. Socioeconomic situations will come into play in these extreme outlier situations. So, there you have it, my little lovebirds. Follow these simple guidelines, and you'll be sure to have a great time on your first date. Just remember, splitting the bill is always the way to go. And if you really want to impress your date, just be yourself. Because at the end of the day, that's all that really matters. Now go out there and slay!
