Going Dutch… this is what Wikipedia says about it:
“Going Dutch” is a term that indicates that each person participating in a group activity pays for themselves, rather than any person paying for anyone else, particularly in a restaurant bill. It is also called Dutch date, Dutch treat (the oldest form) and “doing Dutch”.
There are two possible senses—each person paying his own expenses, or the entire bill being split (divided evenly) between all participants. In strict usage, “Going Dutch” refers to the former, paying one’s own expenses, and the latter is referred to as “splitting the bill”, but in casual usage these may both be referred to as “going Dutch”.
When people think about the Netherlands, they also think about Amsterdam and the Red Light District, about legalized drugs, tulips, cheese, windmills, bicycles and clogs or wooden shoes. The photo above – borrowed from Hubpages – shows a mix of things that the Dutch are ‘famous’ for. But, this is about ‘going Dutch’… how does this inspire you?
