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

Is this still expected?
Oct 16th 2015, 1:40 PM 37,330 140

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 (10084)
Yes (8901)
I'm not sure (1300)
