Poll: Should you split the bill on the first date?

Give it to us straight. Be honest.

ON LAST NIGHT’S episode of First Dates Ireland, a question came up about who should foot the bill on a date.

When the bill arrived for Amy and Ben, one of the couples taking part in the show, Amy suggested that they could split the bill, which Ben agreed to. However in an interview afterwards, Amy said that she would have expected Ben to pay the bill.

What do you make of it? Should you split the bill on the first date? 

Poll Results:

Yes, split the bill (8222)
No, one person should pay (6377)
