I was a little bothered today by someone.  I was invited by a guy to lunch today.  Why should I complain, right?   I was a bit irritated when he picked up my tab.  I went a bit overboard with my spending, because I just assumed it was a friendly lunch together and I would be paying for myself...  I was horrified that my companion picked up the entire check despite repeated protests from me.   
Everyone has bills to pay, and to think he paid for me to be so wasteful made me think that there was more to this invitation, than just lunch. I don't really think that single bill fit into his budget very well. I had plenty of money on hand in cash to pay for my fair.  I like talking to him but I'm not socially into him like that, and I don't think I have given any signs to the contrary. Who is going to pay the bill, unfortunately didn't come up, while eating.   It made me think that if a man does that without your consent, it can actually ruin a friendship.  (At least for me.)    I don't like feeling like I owe somebody something just because they picked up the tab for food and drink.  Special occasions, are exempt of course. Birthdays holidays, ect.....

    Any Thoughts?

I guess it depends on the circumstances. Personally, I prefer to pay for myself, which I usually do if it's just me and another person. I don't like it when someone just grabs the tab without even saying a thing. Often, people just assume it's a nice gesture, sometimes it can also be to show superiority and sometimes it can come off as pretentious. Sometimes when I go out with friends in a larger group, we split the bill evenly. So if there was like 5 of us and the bill was $250, we would pay $50 each. However, if someone clearly had excessively more than everyone else, be it an extra course or a few extra drinks, they would always put in a bit extra.

Tbh unless you're married (because shared finances) - you pay for yourself. Or you split it evenly enough that one person pays for one thing you get and another pays for another thing, for instance when I go to the cinema with someone one of us pays for the tickets and the other pays for the snacks!

If it's just a friend, it shouldn't be a big deal

depends on the situation. IF I go out with my girlfriends, we usually just take turns paying. When I go out with guys, depends... some, the ones that we are clearly both in the friend zone, we take turns... others, if there is any romantic interest rather than encouraging it, I just pay for me and let them pay for them :)

I prefer to pay my own bill. I mean it may be common courtesy for the inviter( a man) to do it but i rather pay for my own meal. if they're persistant then i just may reconsider.

I'll generally pay for myself unless there is a mutual understanding that someone else will pay for the whole meal.

Typically I pay for myself but sometimes I'll be feeling generous and pick up their tab. In this scenario however, it kinda sounds like he's digging you. But then again, I do have a friend who really is just a friend (mutual friend of my boyfriend and I) and he typically likes to pick up my tab , but he's practically loaded and I'm practically poor c; .
