Wenzhou police received a call last week after a blind date ended badly. The police arrived to find a man and a woman, both around 30 years of age, yelling at each other because the man refused to pay the bill.
The two had been set up on a blind date, but neither were particularly impressed. The date passed amicably enough, until it was time to get the bill; the meal had come to around 400 RMB and the man not only refused to pay, he also refused to split the bill evenly, saying that he hadn’t eaten very much, she had ordered, and topped it off by saying the woman wasn’t even good looking.
His date didn’t love this and accused him of being stingy, saying that men should always pay, or at least pay half. The two started yelling at each other and the restaurant owner, unsure of what to do, called the police.
The week before, police in Quanzhou were called out over a similar case when a girl slapped her boyfriend for refusing to pay for her and her friend’s dinner.

The reason it was probably so expensive is from tradition. Tradition(now) is on a first date to buy way more food then you need. It's kind of like saying "look at how much money on food I can waste, I can spend so much and give you so much." I tend to take my dates out to a nice place and pay for the meal(unless they want to go dutch). If a girl just starts ordering a ton of food, I will say "Wow, you can eat so much! How do you stay so small?" and usually they will change their orders to much less.
