Who should pay on a first date?

Interesting article in the guardian this week...


When it comes to dating do you think that guys are still expected to pay?

How does it work in same-sex relationships?
Interestingly, 64% of male respondents say they believe that women should contribute financially to a relationship, and 44% would end a relationship with a woman who never offered to pay, but 76% of men felt guilty when the women did pay.

It would be interesting to hear whether money has caused any issues in your relationships? What do you think is the best way of doing things and how do you bring it up with your boyfriend/girlfriend?
