It is bound that there would definitely be divided opinions on this subject of who is to take care of bill for dating between a male and a female. Regardless of the differences in our respective opinions, one thing is certain, that no matter who pays the bill, there must be paying of the bill.
On a more serious note, dating bill is always expected to be paid by the male folks, but it shouldn't always be like that. Personally, I have experienced a situation whereby a girl asked me out for a date and yet at the end of the dating, she expected me to settle the bill, as man concerned I had to. But in this scenario, it sounded really ridiculous for me to pay a date I didn't planned for.
In reality, what is ought be acceptable is that whoever calls for a date should be the one to pay for the bill. By this practice, we'd know that fairness is been exercised.
