Also I think a good idea would be to switch it up a bit.
That's what me and my first BF tried doing..."One of the nice things about dating as a gay teen is that there really are set rules! If you are dating someone of the same sex, you don't have to play by old fashioned gender rules that say a guy has to be the one to ask a girl out, pay for everything.
Well, not exactly, but this European country’s heritage was all over the Spring 2012 runways this season.
Designers went both the masculine and feminine routes with their collections.
When travel is involved—say heading to the country for the weekend—definitely assume that the cost will be split down the middle.
Keep in mind that who is supposed to pay in dating is unfortunately not a science, and there isn’t a right or wrong answer.
Modern couples often elect to participate in a male-led relationship while others prefer the woman to direct the relationship. In these scenarios, it is up to the individual couple who pays for the dinner bill on specific dates -- for example, one party might earn more money and like to pick up the tab or the couple takes turns paying for going out.
In many ways, GLBT teens have it a lot harder than straight teens when it comes to dating.
Most etiquette experts agree that by the third date, the woman should wholeheartedly at least be offering to pay (if the guy insists on paying, the woman should then pick up the movie tickets or something else).
And on the guy’s birthday, and other special occasions, the woman should also pay.
On the first date, there is no specific etiquette practice concerning who pays for the bill.
Some women prefer to cover their portion of the meal, chip in to pay for the tip or sit back and let their dates pay the entire check.
