The Unsettled, Unsettling Question of First Date Finances
Holly Black

As a straight female, I always chose to split the first date bill. This was pretty much a non-negotiable thing for me. If the guy was the type to be offended/emasuclated by me paying, then that’s great info to have early on because that dynamic would not have worked in any long-term scenario.

If it turned into a regular thing, I would either continue to split, or (preferably) take turns choosing a place and one person paying the whole bill, because then whoever is picking up the tab can dictate what price level he/she is comfortable with.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
