Did you ask her out or did she ask you out?

First I asked her, then she agreed.
I was very sure she pay half of the bill as she is a doctor and has a good business.

Sometimes traditions and beliefs do not transcend a person's financial situation, unfortunately!!

[Unfortunately majority of Persian ladies EXPECT men to pay.

Take other ladies except Persian out then

I guess you are right. I guess some times you would like to see a pretty Persian black curvy eyebrow and a seducing Persian eyes.

You should see one of these Persian girls in order to see what I am trying to say!

PM me their numbers and add then

I don't know buddy boy. If I ask a girl out I'd assume I was paying.

I do not mind to send their numbers to you. But I guess you have to learn Farsi (Persian Language).
Are you willing to learn Farsi?
If so, then prepare yourself for the first lesson:

"man shoma ra doost daram" means I like you.
"shoma khayli ziba hastid" mean you are very pretty.
"man pool-e ghazay-e shoma ra nemipardazam" means I am not going to pay the bill for you.
"ma ra bebakhshid" means (please) forgive me.

I generally offer to pay half because it is the polite thing to do. On the otherhand I think there may be dates I would feel I should be payed to put up with.

I generally assume i'm buying (and if i ask somebody out, I expect to pay, at least for the first night), but also make sure that i don't end up getting stuck with a huge bill from a fancy place she chooses. On a non romantic theme, I have a couple of different female friends who i try and catch up with every couple of months and we trade dinners etc - some are quite expensive, some not so much, but i figure over the course of a few years it all evens out. Plus, in each case, it's up to the person who's turn it is to choose the restaurant (and pick up the tab) etc, so it'd no big deal.

I know it sounds very stingy, but If i'm taken somewhere by somebody, I always check the menu/pricelist etc before even ordering (Even If i'm really trying to impress whoever i'm with) - It's more world-weariness than stinginess, as there are so many scams where the other person "suggests" the restaurant and you end up being charged stupid amounts of cash for very little. And if the girl doesn't appreciate/like that after a small explanation, chances are there is no future anyway.

Having said that, i go on dates so infrequently that it's basically a null and void question for me anyway!

Personally l pay half or if he insists on paying then l buy the drinks the rest of the evening. I just dont feel comfortable with someone else forking out for everything, and l dont wanna feel as if l "owe" them anything!!

Even before my ex boyf and l split we took turns at getting the bill, only fair. I can well afford to buy dinner for myself therefore l should pay for myself!

I hear what you say, but it is very difficult to sit round the table and then decide to leave the place because the food price is very expensive.
