I read an article this morning about a survey that was done where men think its ok to split the check on the first date. First of all if he asked you out, he pays. If a man asks a woman out and then wants to split the check he is telling you right then and there that he is not interested in taking care of you. If you as a woman  allow this to happen, it's on you! I'm not talking about be greedy or a "gold digger" or anything like that. I'm talking about respect! FYI if you are trying to impress a woman don't cut corners  on the first date and always open the door. The car door and the building door.
