I'm not old fashion, but I still think 100% that the male should pay.
It's so awkward when you've had a great dinner and then the tab is presented in the middle of table...who should pick it up?
Whoever wanted or asked the other to go on the date should pick up the tab, unless you both agree to other conditions before said date. It is REALLY nice when the guy will pay even if he didn't ask the girl out on the date though! :)
I always feel akward when it that situation but usually almost always the guy pays if he asks you out because he is cheap if he does not I think if you ask out the guy then be willing to pay or split the tab
who eva asked to go out wit some 1 because your takn them so ummm you should pay
