    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?

    I would hope that the female would at least make an attempt at paying her half. Billing her later is a pretty low rent thing to do.

    I would never not pay, but times have changed. Dating has changed.. It's basically going out to hookup and that's it.

    I like to take my dates to a cheap and non threatening place.. Like a pumpkin patch perhaps.

    I always paid on a first date. I'm either a gentleman or a sucker. To me it's the right thing to do.

    Who ever asks the other person to dinner should pay I think these days. That said, I always paid.

    My first dates start at starbucks. But I usually buy some water before they show up so they don't have to buy anything.

    I always bought on first dates. And got nowhere. Nobody cares if you do it.

    Then I met my wife at a wedding, and we hit it off getting schnockered on someone else's dime.

    I have no problem for paying over the years in certain situations when I was dating, but honestly if a man with a good job invited me out for a dinner, he should be paying.

    This is the douchiest thing I've read today. Guys who use this Venmo app should punch themselves in the balls.

    As for the question at hand, a real dude should always assume to go ahead and pay without even asking. If the lady objects, then they can figure it out.
