Who Pays on Dates?

Who Pays More on Dates?

Last Valentines, I asked you who has a higher salary in the relationship, and 66 percent of you say you make more than your partner. Granted that the majority of you rake in more dough, I'm wondering if this means you pay more on dates. These days, we're all trying to stand on equal footing with men, so going dutch is a lot more common than it used to be. So I'm asking, is it evenly split between the two of you or does someone pay more on dates?

When we eat out he usually pays. I paid for the last movie night. He probably pays for more dates (he makes more), but nobody's counting pennies.

I think the key is to find out what works for your particular relationship. I know girls who always split the check and I know girls who sometimes split the check... everyone's different.

My bf pays for the dates, sometimes I try hard to pinch in something but he doesn't like that.
