Who chose the venue?

This is a big one. If your date chooses the venue then they either have to choose somewhere universally affordable (e.g. Pizza Express) or they should to stump up for the bill.

If your date takes you to a very exclusive Japanese restaurant and orders an £80 bottle of wine, then you should feel under no pressure to pay.

They’ve made the choice to go somewhere expensive so they should take the hit.

If this scenario makes you uncomfortable, make it clear from the offset that you’d like your first few dates to be in really relaxed surroundings. 

After all, why should you pay for their expensive tastes?
