Are there other women out there that have had the man go off to the bathroom just in time for the check? Because it was not planned ahead of time to go to dinner, I would have at least offered to pay half if it was my suggestion.My online dating policy is- if I make the first ask, I pay. If my first ask is at a more pricey place for dinner (vs just drinks), I ask on the front end if we can go dutch. But yes, I wondered if she also drove and paid for gas, snacks, etc.I would be interested to hear how others feel about this....
I found the following table on Renren as a guide to dating and after looking at it: I concluded that what’s easy to do is also easy not to do.

Somehow the woman's movement has not caught up in this area. " "My treat" Just get it out there so noone has to feel awkward.

I agreed and we had a few good hours hiking and talking. I agreed and we went to a nearby chain restaurant and had a good dinner.
Anyway, when the check arrives she conveniently has to go to the rest room and I, not wanting to look like a cheapskate, pay the whole bill.It just seems weird in this day and age when women work. If I really liked her, I'd give her the benefit of the doubt and see what happens next time, but........ On a first date, I was always hyper-conscious of the bill, I never "expected" anyone to pay for it, though the guy usually did (and the one I married did ).I can see that in the old days, when men worked and many unmarried women (especially very young women) stayed home, that the man would pretty much feel he should pay for the expense of dates--women just didn't HAVE the money. **What I meant by the above is, if I liked him and therefore there would be a second date. " "My treat" Just get it out there so noone has to feel awkward. I find it hard to believe she wasn't in some way aware of what she was doing, but there's nothing wrong with giving her another chance if you choose to.**) that the next time would be my treat then, and I'd hold to that.Not to an embarrassing extent where I was yanking the bill back and forth with him but I can't see being fed by another person for every meal every Saturday, LOL.IT seems to me no matter what I would do, it would have made me look like a tightwad or cheapskate.
