When dating should the man pay
Splitting the bill or taking turns paying bills can be an easier task for same-sex couples than straight ones.
After all, they have a better claim to doing away with stereotypes and norms concerning planner and datee roles.
Of course, it’s never compulsory to pay on the first date, but it might show that you’re prepared to make the effort with the person you’re dating.
You may find that at the end of the evening when you’ve requested the bill, your date may offer to split things 50/50.
It also includes information about people’s willingness “to go Dutch.” If you don’t know, the study defined “going Dutch” to means splitting the bill.
And for the men and women in the survey, turns out that many are not in favor of the idea. Yes, the data also split up its information amongst the states to see which state was most willing to go Dutch for the bill. 30% of women from Vermont and 10% of Delawarean men would choose to go Dutch on a date. Well, 7% of men said they would prefer to split the check over anything else. Then, women are least likely to want to share the costs in Montana, where only 12% would go Dutch.
And the results found that surprisingly, people’s perspectives on dating aren’t that different from what they used to be a couple of decades ago.
This shows that you’re considerate and generous, and can help you make headway with those all important first impressions.
