I had met this guy awhile back, he and I had gone out a few times with friends and it had gone pretty well so we decided to finally go out just the two of us. It had gone well with wine, food, and silly conversation. By the end we ordered dessert and end the bill was dropped.
I was sitting on outside part of a banquet table so I was closest to the server and he dropped the bill next to me. Being an independent woman with a job of her own, I had to problem paying for the bill. Before I could even look at it my date had grabbed it, told me it was a nice gesture but he would be paying for our outing. Then, as he was opening his wallet to pull out cash to pay- the gentlemen at the table next to us picked up our check from our table, told us we had better things to do than fight over who was going to pay the bill and that he would pay for it!
What a way to end a first date!! But if he didn’t pay, is it still a date?
