Poll: Should a man pay for the meal on a first date?

Is this still expected?

THERE’S BEEN A lot of talk today about who should foot the bill on a first date.

Last night, a woman on Channel 4′s First Dates refused to split the bill. Her argument? “I never pay on dates. Why would I? Come on, I’ve been hot and fun.”

A lot of viewers were very unimpressed by this, saying it’s only fair to go Dutch.

With this in mind, we’re asking: Should a man pay for the meal on a first date?

Poll Results:

No, it's 2015 (10100)
Yes (8917)
I'm not sure (1303)
