Who picks up the tab can prove to be a minefield on a date, but one man had just cause when it came to splitting the bill.
In the thread shared on BoredPanda, titled ‘Well… There goes the “friendship” with her’ the man explained that his date’s food bill had been more than six times more than his own and he felt he was justified in his decision not to pay.
Sharing screenshots of their conversation he revealed that he had attempted to ask her out on a second date.
A Reddit user has shared the extraordinary response he received from a woman he took out after he refused to pay for her dinner despite her lobster and wine costing six times more than his
She responded: ‘After what you did to me last time you expect me to go out with you again? Wow.’
The baffled redditor then asked what he had done wrong to which she replied: ‘You made me pay for my own food and drink while you paid for only yours wtf’.
The man then replied to explain that he felt it would be unfair for him to pay so much more for his meal when he had ordered far less.
He wrote: ‘So? You invited me lol, you are lucky you didn’t pay for my food too, plus I got a carbonara and a beer while you got lobster and €80 wine.’ [£72, $92 US]
The student attempted to ask her out for a second date but she refused due to the fact that he had refused to foot the entire bill
He went on to point out that while his food bill came in at just €17.50 (£16, $20 US) hers came in at a whopping €110 (£98, $126 US), pointing out that he is a student not a ‘sugar daddy.’
However, his date failed to see his point adding: ‘Wow you are so rude!!! I’m never going out with you ever again, if you can’t pay for a girl’s food then why accepting the invite?’
After accusing him of being gay she then said that he only wanted to have sex with her before the conversation turned sour.
Reddit users were mainly in support of the student, agreeing that it was unreasonable for the woman to expect him to foot the entire bill.
Fellow Redditors agreed that it was completely unreasonable for his date to expect to get a free meal and that he had made the right decision
One responded: ‘That’s why she invited you out so she could get expensive food and wasn’t expecting to pay.’
Agreeing, another wrote: ‘Anyone that expects that royalty treatment is not someone you want in your life. Good move.’
A third added: ‘That’s incredibly obnoxious. Going out solely for the free lobster! Gives women a bad name.’
