ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Here’s an interesting topic with the changing times, who pays on the first date? New research shows, the vast majority of couples are not splitting the bill on the first date.

That holds true even when men and women identify as progressive or feminist. A professor at California State University, Los Angeles say over 75% of men report they still feel guilty accepting women’s money and says it’s common for people to say they expect whoever asks for the date to pay which is men most of the time.

So who pays when you’re on a date? provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
