Did they put a gun on your head and force you to pay?
As soon as they started ignoring you, you should have gotten up, paid for your own food and walked away.
I can't imagine why you'd seat here all night and then footed the whole bill.
Try to learn from it and not be a pushover in the future.

There was never any intention of a date happening. They only saw you as a free meal ticket. It's a pretty bitchy thing to do and those kinds of girls are insufferable, but at the same time you shouldn't have been so spineless. You chose to stay despite their disrespect and let them walk over you (seriously, why??)

Let this be a lesson to you: should this ever happen again, don't pay and don't stay.

If this was a friend that she hasn’t seen I a long time then I would have left politely and rescheduled the date, let them catch up.
If this is a friend that they can see anytime than leave politely again and explain that you are willing to reschedule this date but if you pull this again then we are done.
In either case you shouldn’t have paid for anything other then your meal/drinks and maybe the tip.

If it was really just a date, nobody had any power to “make” you pay. You chose to stay and to pay. Should’ve either left or just asked for separate checks. You are a pushover for letting yourself be taken advantage of in that way. People like you are also the reason people try this scheme.

It’s a hard situation, especially if this was a girl you liked, but she clearly doesn’t like you and it was rude of them to expect you to pay. Don’t ask her out again and if she ever asks you, she’s probably just after a free meal. Say no and move on.

OP - The proper reaction depends on the situation.
If this was a first date and my date had brought a friend unannounced, I would turn around and walk - no meal, nothing.
If this was an ongoing dating situation I would expect each person to pay for their own meal, and if I was being completely ignored I think I would leave money for my share of the meal and walk.

Normally, nobody can take advantage of you unless you enable them to. At the very least speak up when things are going to Hell like this before the bill comes.

Heck no, I get you were trying to do the respectful thing but you shouldn't have paid. Sounds like they used you for a free meal.
