Who should pay on the first date?

“Does a man have to pay on a first date?”

People on the street were asked this question by actors from a popular German comedy show but the answers they received in the actual segment were not nearly as interesting as comments under the video.

One man had such a particularly grandiose justification of his position that we had no choice but to devote an entire episode to giving our take on his premise. This point of view surprised even ourselves!

In this episode, we discuss the main question of who should pay on the first date, we reflect upon the importance of first impressions and, as usual, we share some funny stories from our own first dates.

And now we turn the question to you.

Who do you think should pay on the first date?

Looking forward to hear from you!!
