The traditional school of thought is that the man is expected to pay for a woman on their first date. Females were brought up to believe that this is a very nurturing gesture. She appreciates being treated like a special lady and in turn is expected to be on her best behavior.
However, with times a changing so quickly, oftentimes, the woman makes more money or equal income as her date and feels that she can either pay or she can split the check with her date. What is important to remember is that whoever winds up paying, usually this sends the message that they are interested.
