In 2017 the age-old question of who should pay for a first date is one with no clear consensus.

Talk to some it's still good manners for a man to offer, an acceptable vestige of old school chivalry along the same lines as holding open a door. To others it's as out-dated as telling the waiter the lady would like the fish.

But what you categorically do not do, under any circumstances, is pay for the drinks all night then request a refund if it doesn't go the way you hoped.

Step forward Lucy Brown from London, the latest woman to expose the terrible etiquette she has encountered on the dating scene.

The 38-year-old went out with a man she met on Plenty Of Fish, but after a pleasant enough evening decided she wasn't interested in seeing him again.

After saying their goodbyes, the man messaged her requesting a 'contribution for the drinks I spent on you', complete with his sort code and account number.

Fair play to Lucy: she paid him back in full, and even made a donation to a donkey sanctuary (brutal), thus paving the way to safely put the whole sorry affair online.

"I had only been using dating apps for about a month, mainly Tinder and Plenty of Fish," Lucy, 38, told the Metro.

"I met him on Plenty of Fish and I thought he seemed really nice and normal, with a good profession as I'm a career girl and he seemed quite sensible."

Obviously not.
