In my opinion men, allways should pay the bill, in my first date my boyfriendpaid the bill in the restaurant and discotec.
I allways pay the bill when I go out with my friends and my family.
I usually go to restutant, movies, discotec, coffee shop with my boyfriend and he pays the bill.

In my opinion, is usually pays the men or should pay the bill, but never pays the women, this not correct.
I sometime pay the bill with my friends or my family.

in my opinion it should split the payment but a gentleman, should pay the bill, once went out with my girlfriend at 15, went to the movies, eat ice cream after a course but do not usually spend that day. . . If you spend, well now so I try not to go back often ..

Name: jorge honores - basic 3

in my opinion the bill should pay equal partner , usually in my case when I go with my girlfriend going to the movies, discos, malls, argue over who pays the bill but we agreed it would pay for equal every time we go out..-.

In my case my boyfriend always pays the bill!!
But when I go out with my sister or parents... I usually pay the bill .. because they said: "Linda work!" It´s not fear!
When I go to the movies, or go out for dinner , I pay the bill with my friends. Never alone, never!
I´m poor person. :)

See you tomorrow!

Well, it's true that In Peru in common that men pays on the dates. I think that is better split the bill because you'll be all right and It's the best in a couple.
In a FIRST DATE I usually prefer spend time talking.But when we go to eat ALWAYS I like split the bill...=)

I think always the men should pay the bill because It's a way be gentleman.
In my first date, My friend always invite me to eat to differents restaurants or sometimes We go to the cinema. Often, We go to dance. He always pays the bill on all places.
I always split the bill with my friends but with my family never pay the bill :).

I think it depends on the circumstances. Have an appointment at age 14 is different than having an appointment at 20 years and very different to 40 years, and many other factors that determine a appointment:)

Well,I in my first date went to the cinema with my boyfriend and he pay the bill.
But on the weekend with my classmates usually go to the movies, in this case, each person pays for hilself or helself...

in my opinion men always pays on date, out with friends because in our country is traditional but times change.
when I go out with my friends, always men pay but when we don`t have money we give them the money, it`s fun :)

jazmin moran said...

well ,that´s difficult for me because here in peru it´s a custom that man paid the bill , but not all the time because I had an experience when my date didn´t has money so I paid the bill was really uncomfortable ...!!!

I think that this topic, in this days, it's not a problem because, now, the sociality is more liberal so in my opinion the person who pays can be the man or the girl.
But, in the first date I think that would be elegant the man pays the bills.

frank terrones said...

In my opinion , is correct that men pay the bill because the girl like that.
In mi first date,my girlfriend and I went to the movie and payed the bill but my girlfriend seemed to she is uncomfortable, but for me it's ok.we had a great time..

Evelyn Valdez said...

Teacher Do you rememeber me? =) , Well in my case is strange becasuse I and my boyfriend work but I earn more money than him , so when both got to a place the mayority I have to pay , because he don't have money.
I don't bu in nowadays the bill should be share por the couple, because after the amn thinks that he have the control of the relationship.
