Mind you, I’m a notoriously anxious person in these situations, so I wouldn’t be surprised if someone offered to pay the full tab and I had minor freakout.

Yes this is an incredibly tense thing for me as well. HOW DO YOU KNOW? If I don’t offer to at least pay the tip, does he see me as cheap/privileged/snotty/obnoxious? On the other hand, if I offer, am I implying that he can’t pay for himself, that I can’t take a nice gesture, or that I just want to know how much he’s willing to spend on me (offering to tip would require I know the total)?
