Some guys do it because it feels second-nature to at least offer.
Some people split it down the middle every time.
Others believe it's just on the person who came up with the date in the first place.
And there's always the option of taking turns paying for things.
But if that doesn't work, one can be sneaky and make sure the bill is split evenly.
Because some people question this tradition in the first place.
Especially since financial situations can differ.
And it can be highly impractical to assign gender to who pays.
Especially when not all couples are heterosexual.
And maybe you're uncomfortable letting someone pay without putting up a little fight.
At the end of the day, it's a norm worth questioning.
Because it can feel awesome and empowering to take turns getting the check and getting treated.
Especially if you're on a date with Rihanna.
