I know it's probably common knowledge that the man pays, or the one who invites on the date. But I'm into equality so she can pay for her own food.

When I go on dates, it comes out of the same bank account either way :)

If you really like her, I suggest you pay.

If not, tell her it's her turn.

I actually paid on my last date ;). I'm a generous person except when people seem to demand it from me.

Besides there are a thousand reasons to why I'm single.

But why is it the man who must pay? It's like saying "I'm a woman and no less than a man, but you pay for my dinner". At least take turns.

I offer to pay for everything.  And if the offer is declined, I breathe an inward sigh of relief.

I really think it depends on who asked for the date.  That's your starting point.  

It's similar to inviting people into your home.  As the host, you typically offer food and drink (unless there is a prior "bring your own" agreement).  

If you offer to pay, but your date offers to help pay, then all the better!  :ebert:

I'm single because I like having different desserts with each meal.
