Help! It's My First Date With A New Guy, Should I Pony Up For The Bill?

Mar 26, 2008
With the demand for dating growing rapidly, a large number of online dating websites have been launched by various companies and organizations due to the sheer universality of the demand.

These dating sites are usually 100% free for the users and provide people with the facility to meet with different people based on their interests' compatibility. Interaction with different people through these free dating websites leads people to ask out for dates. Whether you have dated before or are a newbie in the dating world, you always have a lot of questions to ask. Fortunately enough for you, we have all the answers that you might require relating to the world of free dating.

Just because a dating site is free does not mean that it is worthless. Free dating sites generate revenue from online advertisements rather than memberships.

A first date with someone is always a different experience. There are a lot of dos and don'ts that need to be considered. You always have a lot of questions. Should I ask first or let the guy ask me? Should I pay? Such are the concerns that keep you pre-occupied days before the actual date.

Let's give a comprehensive solution to your problem. It doesn't matter whether you have asked out for a date in your local bar or you have been asked in one of the online dating websites by the guy. It has become customary in recent years that a guy pays or is expected to pay if you're on a first date. This gives you an insight into what your date comprehends.

It is a token of guarantee that he is serious about having a relationship with you. He intends to ask you for another date too. It also tells that your date is not interested in enjoying at your monetary expense and neither is using you as a favorite past time.

Most of the 'good' guys realize that themselves. They usually deem it embarrassing if they don't pay on the first date. So, if you're thinking about going on a date with a new guy, it would not be a bad idea to carry out a little background check. Ask about your date from common friends. Navigate through the dating website if you're using one of the online dating sites.

The last thing you want to do is be surprised when you think your date is going to pay and then he pulls up lame, leaving you to pay the bill.

This way you'll have an idea about your date. You'll be in a better position to understand what to expect from your date. Summing up the matter, we suggest you to forget about paying on your first date with a new guy. It's a guy's reputation at stake. He won't ever let you pay. However, they say you should always hope for the best and be prepared for the worst. It will never hurt you to keep some cash handy, just in case! Good luck!
