I am curious as to your opinions on this matter. I went out on a date with a lady last week. I asked her out and she accepted so I felt like it was my responsibility to pay for our evening. I really didn't feel a connection after only a few minutes, and I know she felt the same. I figured well I will give it a shot and see what happens, who knows, at the very least will go out and have a nice evening. She was a very rude date though, on her cell phone half the time talking and texting, also fairly blunt and rude to our waitress, it just wasn't very nice. Now we are both adults, I figure even not hitting it off we could just enjoy the night, and have fun, but I guess not. Nothing was wrong on our date, just normal conversation, trying to enjoy the evening. There was nothing controversial going on, just rudeness on her part. Towards the end of our meal she offered to pay for herself, but I said no "I will pay for dinner" and I did. Later though I got to thinking, would it have been justified to make her pay for herself? Now like I said it has nothing to do with us not clicking, but her behavior was terrible and down right rude to me and others that came into contact with her (bartender while we waited for a table, the waitress). Why should I pay for someone who is acting so inappropriate? Like I said I turned down her offer to pay, and took up the bill myself, but I am curious as to some public opinion on whether or not it would ever be justifiable to tell a person on a date, "you know when you act like this you can pick up your own tab?" There was no reason for the bad behavior except she was just rude.
