    Usually, when you go out with a couple of foreign friends, you're expected to "go dutch"(如果你跟一个外国人说:”我们AA制吧“,他就会听不懂。英文里相当于“AA制”的说法是“go dutch"). However, if the foreigner is familiar to Chinese culture, he will likely try to pay. Or if a foreigner ask you out on a date, then he definitely pay for it.

    The culture when it comes to paying for someone's dinner differs in China and western developed nations, so don't be surprised if you'll expected to pay for your own meal.
