Men Should Never Split The Bill On The First Date - It Shows You’re 'Cheap' And 'Not Raised Right'

Dating is about getting to know someone and learning to make plans/decisions together. A few conclusions are vital than how one chooses to budget money. A lot of people fail to regard money or finances as an essential factor amid falling in love. While this is quite understandable, how you manage and talk about money with your partner needs to be established slowly and importantly as things grow. 

With this said, the question remains: Who is to pay the bill on a first date? The man, the woman, or should it be spilled? Over time, this has emerged as quite a hot topic in the dating universe. Different people have aired their opinions, with many agreeing that bills should be spilled in two. However, a relationship expert disagrees with splitting the bills, insisting that men always pick up the tab.

Do you agree that discussing how to split the bill on a first date has ALWAYS been awkward?

Dating Guru Nelly took to TikTok to share with her over 600K followers why men should never let a woman pay for a first date. “If you’re asking a girl out and then going Dutch, it just shows you’re cheap, you weren’t raised right, you’re not chivalrous, and you’re dating outside of price range,” Nelly said in a clip that has since gone viral. 

Whatever your answer is, Dating expert Nelly has insisted that should always pick up the tab.

She added that men who are strapped for cash should effectively plan for low-key dates instead of asking their romantic interest actually to pay for what they ordered. Nelly continued: “Instead of trying to flex at nice dinner, you’re better off taking her on a picnic in the park.” She went on to insist that even “the most progressive girls do mind “if they are asked to split the bill.”

“It’s not because they can’t afford it but because it shows us YOUR character. If you’re a girl and you’re paying for first dates, I’m here to tell you that he ain’t it, sis.” Nelly explained. Her perspective, as expected, sparked a debate in the comments. “Women: if he doesn’t pay, he’s cheap. Also, Women: don’t judge us for expecting men to pay; we’re not gold diggers.” One user commented. 

She claimed that even the most progressive girls do mind “if they are asked to split the bill.”

Some people sided with Nelly, claiming it’s simply tradition and nothing out of the ordinary. Someone wrote: “It has nothing to do with the money or buying someone’s time. It’s simply tradition, like holding the door open or being polite. Especially if they had been invited.” Others insisted that they would rather pay for themselves as there are no expectations.
