I'm sure she appreciated dinner! I'm sorry you couldn't take her out to the movie though, next time set a budget for each event maybe.

@ #11 My guess is that they typed "gh" by mashing the keyboard then posted it and went back and edited it after.

I know not all girls would feel the same as I do, but being a student who works part time and knows the effort it takes to earn money, I can honestly say I would prefer my boyfriend to tell me in this instance, although if it was a bf of a year I'd be offering to split the cost of the date or pay for myself anyway

I've been in this situation. It was hard to admit that I did not have the cash to do everything we wanted to do. When I finally did, she was fine with it. If she is a good person, then she will understand.

Yeah, next time definitely check out the menu beforehand to get an idea of what it will cost for the both of you if you're planning on taking her out somewhere fancy. I wish I could afford to take my boyfriend out to nice places like that, oh well that's what I get for being in college for 6 years. Hopefully next year I'll be banking.

At least you're trying! I usually go Dutch on dates so maybe that could be an option in the future? Or tell her the truth. I'm sure she'll understand :)

Usually what I do if the date involves two or more payments we would each split them equally ( such as if we went to a movie one would buy tickets while the other paid for the snacks and drinks). In this situation one would pay for dinner and the other for the movie, then a following date we would switch so one isn't always paying for the more expensive thing.

if you didnt have enough money why couldnt both of you just pay for your selves or half the bill. Im sure she wouldnt mind and would understand, shes been with you for a year

My boyfriend and I usually do this but on special occasions we like to take each other out. It could have been their anniversary or something and OP wanted to do something special for her. Otherwise I agree, though, dates should be 50/50 :)

You could've also suggested that instead of going to see a movie, you two could watch one at yours and her house. Either way, I'm sure she appreciated the dinner!

Should have just told her I bet she wouldn't have cared. You could just watch a movie at home with her and made it romantic.
