1. He Always Pays

Girls, this is one of the most common misconceptions, even in 2012! This is one of those relationship rules that is totally outdated. Should he pay when the relationship first starts out? Sure! But if you've been with the guy for a few months, it is definitely your turn to pick up the check once in a while.

Hi Paul! I think -- and this is just my opinion that the first couple dates, the guy should pay, but then it's time for the girl to buck up and pay if she is still seeing the guy after a few of the first dates. :)

@Heather Jensen: Why does the guy pay even early in the relationship? I mean, you just said not to do it, then you qualified your answer.
I agree with most of them other than the "moving in before marriage" one. The concept itself isn't that bad, but it conflicts with my religion. ^^
