PRLog - Oct. 22, 2012 - Dating after divorce for men can be tricky, especially if you were in a long relationship. As you get back into the dating world, you may wonder who should pay for the first date. After all, it used to be the convention that men pay, but especially in today’s modern world, many people think that the rules have changed. And yes, it’s true that women tend to pay for more things while dating. However, first date tips for divorced men still dictate that the man should always pay.

The main reason for this rule is that it’s the gentlemanly way to act in the situation. The man paying on the first date is traditional for a reason! It’s because it’s convention and it shows respect for the woman. An honorable man pays, and you probably want to be thought of as honorable.
Another reason to pay is that you wouldn’t want to risk the humiliation of not paying. If the woman you’re taking out expects you to pay, but you pull out your calculator when the bill comes, she may be really offended. The best option is to not risk that and just plan to pay it.
Paying for the date also shows that you are financially stable, which is one of the things that women look for. After all, if you can’t pick up the tab on even a fancy dinner, does she really want to become financially intertwined with you? She’s probably looking for someone who is responsible and well established, so prove that you are.
Even if you don’t remember any other divorced man dating tips, at least remember that you need to pay on the first date. Hopefully you’ll get a second date to show for it!
