After having read this article, I began to wonder how much etiquette has changed.
When I began dating, the rules were simple, whoever initiated the date, paid for the date. Whether it was a concert, dinner, a night at the cinema, whatever, whoever did the asking did the paying.
As to when you've been dating a while, I think the fair thing to do is alternate who pays for the date out. And as a poor girl, I also believe in going out and doing things that require little to no expense. I love picnics and going to see Shakespeare in the park during the summers (both activities that require little funds). Heck a day at the zoo isn't all that bad either (if you can avoid animals escaping their enclosures).
Anyway, what are your thoughts on dating etiquette?
Do you believe the guy should always pay?
Or do you think the highest earner should always pay?
Or do you believe as I do that whoever does the asking should do the paying?
