I recently signed up on Match.com. After a couple of emails with this guy, I suggested getting together and meeting if he was interested. He gave me his phone number. I called him and talked a bit. He listed some places and asked me what what I'd prefer. We're meeting for drinks/casual dinner (wings, sports bar type of food) on Monday night.
When I did OLD a couple of years ago, the guy always paid on the first meet or the first few dates if we wound up going out more.
