birthday dinners

I was just wondering for your own birthday dinners, do you pay for your invited guests' dinner & your own... or do you have everyone get seperate bills?

I've always paid for my dinners, but this year I'm unsure if I want to. $

Usually when it's my birthday, someone else pays for me

If I was at someone's birthday, I wouldn't expect them to pay for me.

Ok, if YOU invited them to dinner on your birthday then I would not expect them to pay for you. If someone invited me to be a guest at their birthday dinner, I would expect to pay for myself. However, if it was THEIR idea to take you out to dinner, they should pay for yours and their own.

^I agree as well, what Shelley said sounds like a way more eloquent version of what I was trying to say

usually if it's a big group everyone chip in a little bit and pay for the birthday boy/girl... then everyone else pay for their own

If your friends are used to you paying for their dinner, you should probably make it somewhat clear that this year they are paying.

You could do it the Chinese way (okay, I'm sure it's the same in a lot of other cultures as well) and fight over the bill until it's lying in about a million shreds on the restaurant floor.

(I know this suggestion actually results in one's have to pay more, but it just seemed like a funny thing to bring up.)

^^^LOL, that is funny.

When you are taking out someone for their birthday dinner, consult this website to figure out where to take them. Hey, It's Free! | Daily freebies, free stuff, and free samples!
It provides a list of restaurants that will provide free food when its your birthday. This way there is no confusion as to who pays for the b-day girl or boy since their meal is free.
LOL (I am really not that cheap).

Exactly what Shelley said. On my last b-day I had a friend ask if I wanted to go to dinner and he paid the bill. The next day I went out with a few friends for the day and we ended up eating lunch and dinner out and paid for our own meal both times.
