Why You Should Never Split The Bill And Why Guys Should Always Pay

Dating isn't easy.

But often, we make things harder for ourselves.

By creating lots of dating rules you're supposed to follow that turn into unresolved debates.

Where no one's completely sure what's right or wrong.

Take the classic, who is supposed to pay on a date?

Should the guy pay?

Or should you split it?

Or should the guy be willing to pay, but let the girl split it if she wants too?

Or should the girl offer to split it but the guy insist on paying?

And so on.

This is stupid.

Honestly, the guy should ALWAYS pay.

But not for the reason you think.

Not because of some chauvinistic ideal of men as the proverbial breadwinners.

Or because of an outdated notion that women must be pampered.

It's much simpler than that.

If YOU take a girl out, YOU should pay.

When you get someone a present, you don't expect something in return.

When you offer to make someone dinner, you don't ask them to cook.

When you take someone out on a date, you shouldn't ask them to pay.

Because it's a gift.

Of course, this only applies if you're in Phase 2 of The Dating Game.

You know, when you're on those first few dates before it's official.

Otherwise, it's a different story entirely.

Don't forget to share if you agree.
