The Great Debate: First date, who pays?
Published On May 31, 2012 | Lifestyle
It’s your first night out with the guy you met last weekend. Things seem to be heating up at dinner (and it’s definitely not just the spicy number seven tikka masala you just shared) when the bill comes. Dilemma! Do you reach for the receipt or wait for your date to take the tab? Verge talked to guys and girls around London to find out what they would do.
What they said
“The guy. It’s polite.”

“Go dutch. We’re not old fashioned anymore. If you’ve got the money you should both pay.”
