Hi all. I was reading this this morning and was a bit turned off. Getting an app request to pay up for a drink or for a dinner? If you wanted me to pay, just ask straight up. http://nypost.com/2016/05/25/cheap-bros-have-found-a-new-way-to-get-out-of-paying-for-dates/ Shaquan Bailey, a 22-year-old caretaker, was thrilled when a guy she met online invited her out for their third date at a restaurant near her Bed-Stuy apartment. She found the man charming over pizza and wine and, like a gentleman, he picked up the check and then walked Bailey back to her apartment. She thought the date had gone well — until the guy sent her a $30 payment request on Venmo to cover half the dinner bill, which she grudgingly paid. “I had a guy who asked me to Venmo him to pay for a $3 well drink,” fumed Tammy, a 21-year-old beauty blogger who asked that her last name be withheld for professional reasons. Anyway in today's different world and work world, should the man still pay the first dates?
