Who Should Pay On The First Date?

August 30, 2013

It’s the age-old question: who should pay on the first date?

Turns out, most Aussies are traditionalists and expect the man to pay, while a growing number believe couples should go Dutch.

Exclusive dating agency Blue Label Life conducted a love survery and found that over two-thirds of people want the man to pay, with 31.2% opting to split the bill.

Surprisingly, 1.4% thought the woman should pay on the first date!

Aussies’ top three turn ons are a sense of humour, warm heart, and a positive attitude, while the top three turn offs are poor hygiene, bad breath/teeth, and infidelity – eww!

Other interesting results from the survey include 91% of respondents choosing love over money, and when deciding how long a relationship takes to get serious, 39.7% think a long-term relationships is 1-3 years, and 42.1% think it has to be longer than 3 years.
