    Let's go Dutch?

    Hello!

    I have one question about the expression "going Dutch"

    "Going Dutch" means paying for one's own meal rather than going haves.

    Am I right?

    Each person pays for their own meal in a restaurant. "Going halves " is splitting the bill into two equally.

    ... and there are only two people at the table (or maybe several couples? - I'm not sure about this; it would be logistically problematic anyway!)
