Who Pays On The Date?

For all you single women torn with this dilemma when on a date.

This is taken from The World According to HE & SHE by Julie Logan
and Arthur Howard:

If SHE wants to sleep with him, then it’s a date:
HE pays.

If SHE doesn’t want to sleep with him and if SHE’s a nice person
who wants the “just friends” message to get through loud and
clear:
SHE pays for herself and insists on it.

If SHE doesn’t want to sleep with him and if SHE’s a nice person
but HE’s rich:
HE pays but SHE offers.

If SHE doesn’t want to sleep with him, SHE’s not a nice person,
and HE’s rich:
HE pays.

If SHE doesn’t want to sleep with him, SHE’s not a nice person,
and HE’s not rich:
HE pays.

If HE pays but SHE doesn’t want to seem like a freeloader:
SHE offers to help, HE refuses, SHE says she’ll get the drinks or
coffee later.

If HE’s cheap:
HE asks her to split the bill.

If HE’s broke, they’re close, SHE’s not a nice person, and
they’re going to a good place:
SHE feigns indifference to the financial catastrophe that awaits
him. HE pays.

If HE’s broke, they’re close, SHE’s a nice person, and they’re
going to a good place:
SHE slips him the money before they get to the restaurant.

If HE’s broke, they’re close, SHE’s nice, and they’re going to a
cheap place:
SHE pays.

If HE’s broke, they’re close, SHE’s not nice, and they’re going
to a cheap place:
SHE suddenly realizes that SHE has to stay home and wash her
hair… forever.

If SHE asked him out, it’s his birthday, and they’re in love:
SHE pays.

If SHE asked him out and it’s not his birthday but HE knows
what’s good for him:
SHE starts to pay, HE protests, SHE gives in.

If HE’s a guy with any interest in seeing her again:
HE pays. Period.
