Speed Dating Events Glasgow: Who Pays For The First Date?

Speed dating events Glasgow based are just the beginning. There could be much more to come if you match with someone and plan that all important first date. But, when it comes to the date itself, who should pay? While it wasn’t an issue when you met at speed dating, it could become one on your first date.

In dating history, before modern conventions such as equality and speed dating, it was usual, if not expected for the man to pay for the date rather than the woman. There were numerous reasons for this, including the practicality of the fact historically it was the man who would have been more likely to be earning. However, thankfully times have changed and women are more likely to be financially equal and more than willing to pay their own way. However, with no clear etiquette on paying for a first date it can become a source of confusion, even leading to awkwardness on the date. So, what is the right thing to do? Speed dating events UK based are not necessarily the place to discuss future dates, or who will pay for them, but once you have a match, it is important to have a plan in place. The most sensible thing to do is split everything down the middle. But, if you know that one of you earns a lot more than the other, take this into account when planning the date, rather than trying to make a big gesture on the date, which could back fire.
