Should You Split The Bill?

“A real woman can do it all by herself. But a real man won’t let her.” ~Unknown

Split the bill_

Should you split the bill on a date or should the guy pay for it? I go back and forth on this topic.

I want to be the independent, millennial woman who takes care of herself and says without a doubt that the bill should be split 50/50…but there is a part of me that wants that old school, romanticized, he took care of me feeling.

Don’t get me wrong, I do believe that once a couple is out of the courting stage and is an actual couple, then the woman should pitch in and it shouldn’t all fall on the man. But in that initial stage I’m leaning towards feeling like a guy should be paying.

When I go out I always offer to split the bill. If they take me up on my offer and I do pay for myself then I’m not offended and I don’t stop dating them because of it. It’s not a deal breaker for me. But there is just something about having a man pay that makes me feel girly. It feels good. And who doesn’t like to feel good?

I’m really interested in what other people have to say about this topic? Tell me what you think.
