(Toronto Star)   This just in. Men more likely to pick up tab on dates. Apparently, this is more effective than praying for sex   ( divider line

And the old saying is still true: "Somewhere out there right now is a woman who regrets ordering the lobster."

If a date is going badly, I'll typically just excuse myself to the restroom and then leave the restaurant.

When a woman can't hold up her end of a conversation or eats like she's never been taught basic manners, she can pay for both of us. I'll be on my way home.

But if the date is going well, I'll generally offer to split the check. I don't want to come across as falsely chivalrous or seemingly attached to outdated social custom.

pedobearapproved: DenisBergkamp: Even when the girl offers to pay or tries to pay I usually have paid it all or at least my share.

So you spend a lot of money and don't get laid as much as you should?

It always seems to be a turn off when I search for my red lobster coupons in my fanny pack when the cheque comes.

I usually just meet for drinks.. then on to meal if the drinks went well.

Sometimes, dinner doesn't go well, though, and I figure out she is just in it for the meal.

When it comes time to pay , I'll put a card in the payment book.   The card will say, 'I'll blow you if you comp my meal"

I then excuse myself to the rest room and then beat it out to the car.

frostus: From The Woods: Call me crazy, but I usually get to know the girl pretty well through talking/texting/whatever long before I take her out to dinner. I'm not about to spend money on some chick I don't even know. If I'm taking her to dinner, that means we're already good friends or lovers.

My wife still picks on me because I never took her on a real date until after we were engaged.

Was the marriage arranged? How in the hell do you not go out of a date until you're engaged? Sleepovers, giggling under the sheets while you shine a flashlight up and discuss how it resembles a boob? Playing legos, or did you just meet up for dueling raids on World of Warcraft? Christ, some people.

I was going to say you misspelled "womyn", but on second thought, no. You definitely didn't.

I always make my wife pay the bill but mostly because she doesn't trust me with cash or credit cards. I tend to be one of those impulse buyers.

/still get to have sex though

Even when the girl offers to pay or tries to pay I usually have paid it all or at least my share. I understand there is social norms and some people pay no mind to them, good on those girls and all. The problem is the inherent niceness of people on a first date means the offer of splitting or picking up the tab could just be someone being polite. If I'm too put off to afford covering the tab I'd rather just go somewhere friendlier on the wallet.

Lucky with the long term relationship I no longer have this dilemma, now I know that I always pay!
