    Default Go Dutch

    Peter: The dinner's on me!
    Susan: Just go Dutch then.


    Can Susan say, "Fifty fifty." :D

    Susan could say fifty-fifty, but that is different. Go Dutch is paying for your own food but fifty-fifty is each paying equally, 50% of the total bill.

    A cheap date is better than a cheapskate.

    Going Dutch does also mean no ties or obligations.

    Going Dutch seems to be impossible when one is growing old.

    I don't know that many persons in their forties or more who are still fancy-free (which seems to be a sort of synonym for "going Dutch", according to you).
