I dated quite a bit before meeting my husband, and never met a guy who wanted to go Dutch (which is just tacky, in my opinion). One guy actually lectured me when I tried to pay half the dinner bill, saying that he will always pay when I'm with him and to please not ever bring it up again. Another guy when out for drinks found out I'd given the waitress my credit card and at the end of the night when she ran the tab she brought me back my card and I asked her for the receipt to sign. She told me my date had given her his card and instructed her NOT to use mine. Actually, I do remember one guy that we took turns paying for drink rounds out at a karaoke bar, but he's the only one I can think of. One actually pretended he didn't hear me when I mentioned - twice - that I'd like to pay my share.
And lastly, on my first meeting with my now-husband, he'd truly left his wallet at home (he works at home and had rushed out of his house when he realized he was going to be late for our first meet) and was embarrassed that I paid for our coffee. I've since come to learn he forgets his wallet A LOT when we go places. LOL. But that was the last time he ever allowed me to pay for anything once we started dating.
I'm a great cook and bake everything from scratch, so I enjoyed making dinner and baking treats for them, and they greatly appreciated the time and effort I put into making a fabulous meal for them.
That was always my experience, anyway.
