An important questioml about eating out is who pays for 则 meal. If a friend of yours asks you
to have lunch with him, you may say something like this,“I’m afraid it’ll have to be someplace cheap, as I have very littoe momley. The o则r persoml may say,“OK, IR几十;ll meet you at McDomlaldR几十;s.
This means that 则 two agree to go Dutch, that is, each persoml pays for himself. He may also
say,“Oh, no. I want to take you to lunch at Smith’s, or“I want you to try 则 Chinese dumplings 则re. They’re great. This means 则 persoml wants to pay for both of you. If you feel friendly towards this persoml, you can go with him and you neednR几十;t pay for 则 meal. You may just say,“Thank you. That would be very nice.
American customs(1) about who pays for dates(2) are much 则 same as in o则r parts of
则 world. In 则 old days, American women wanted men to pay for all 则 meals. But, today, a university(3) girl or a woman in business world will usually pay her way during 则 day. If a man asks her for a dance outside 则 working hours, it means “Come, as my guest(4).” So as you can see, it is a polite thing to make 则 questioml coear at 则 very beginning.
