It wasn’t a nice feeling and I never wanted to feel like that again.It has to be equal, otherwise I feel weirdly dependant on them. Once you’ve been seeing each other for a while, and it’s agreed that you’ll split everything – or take it in turns, which is what me and my boyfriend do – it’s much easier. I think both parties should offer to pay for their share.I once went on a Tinder date where the guy paid £60 worth of cocktails for us.

There’s nothing worse than a girlfriend who expects everything, but I like to pay on the first date, personally.

You learn a lot about a guy when it comes to settling the bill.

‘So, you had two drinks at £4.50 each, are we doing cash or card?

’ My rule is that the guy should always offer at least the first two times, maybe three.

And women feel obliged to go along, or at least that’s how I felt when I was dating a few years back.

Now I just go Dutch; that way I can say no and walk away if I want to.In same sex couples, I think the rule is the person who has done the asking picks up the bill.If it’s a first date or early in the relationship, I would always offer to pay.It’s always best for both parties to offer to pay, but as a guy, I like to be the one to get the bill on the first date.I don’t know if it sounds mega old-fashioned, but there’s something masculine about being able to treat a girl and provide for her – even if she’s perfectly capable of doing it herself.A true gentlemen wouldn’t let me and that actually makes me feel a bit more special in a way.
