‘This guy grifted me hard’: My date chose an exclusive L.A. restaurant. After dinner, he accepted my credit card — and we split a $600 bill. Shouldn’t he have paid?

THE MONEYIST Dear Quentin, Long story short: I met a man for dinner last week. I usually try FaceTime or even a daytime coffee at Starbucks or Verve Coffee Roasters in West Hollywood — for safety reasons — when there are a lot of people around, but this time I took one look at his joyful pictures and his jet-set lifestyle (if I’m being honest) and I thought, ‘What the hell? What could go wrong?’ Famous last words.
