Going dutch while dating

Ever been in the classic tug-of-war over picking the tab with a friend?

So to avoid all of that, he and his dates choose to split the bill down the middle when they go out.

I was married for 20 years and recently divorced, so I have been out of the dating game for a while.

I have been asked out to dinner by a man at work and I like him but I’m not sure how to handle the paying part. Some say I should offer to pay half and others say that if he asked me out, he should pick up the bill.

And as long as I am on the market, I will never, ever pay for a first day–ever!

My feelings are that a woman has to have standards and boundaries.

However, going dutch, or heck, even paying for a first date, ain’t one of them.
