but anytime I( or my wife) invite a female friend to join us for dinner or a movie, i assume cost responsibility. now if its a male friend i generally will pay if we i know they are strapped for cash. Mind you these are just friends. if i was dating it would be assumed that i was paying if i asked them out.
maybe i'm a bit old school though(i still say the autococker is better than any of these new markers)
sounds like the guy is lying about his income and that just is not a good way to start a relationship.
