When meeting women at a restaurant for the first time for a dining date, there comes that awkward moment when you are finished eating and the waiter brings the bill. Who pays?

To avoid any confusion or embarrassment as to who pays, here's how I set it up to where you completely avoid the issue:

Arrive early at the restaurant and arrange to give your waiter in advance, your credit card and tip instructions. Instruct them to bring you the credit card slip to sign after you have completed your meal. This way everything is taken care of in advance and she will admire you for this. And there won't be that awkward moment as to who pays the bill.

Also, if the two of you arrive together early by chance, you can just excuse yourself to go to the restroom and set up this same procedure with your waiter in advance.
