There is a seemingly endless ongoing discussion surrounding financial date etiquette, and whether it's best to go dutch or have one party pay.
While there are a myriad of opinions on the subject, and many gendered and heteronormative takes, one of the most commonly agreed upon conclusions is that whoever initiated the date should pay.
However, not all dates go smoothly, and that begs a whole different question: should you still pay if you feel the other person is treating you rudely?
AITA for asking the check to be split after my date was rude?
I had a date with a girl, we had been messaging back and forth for a couple of weeks and I said we should meet and get to know each other, she agreed and we set a time and place.
We met outside and made our way in together making small talk, we got to our table and the conversation flowed. It looked like it was going good, the topic got on to previous dates we had, mainly the bad ones. She said she had quite bad luck with dates and guys being only after one thing.
