    How to prevent being led on?

    What does one do to prevent being used? How do I know she's going out with me because she likes me, and not just because she enjoys getting out once in a while and having money spent on her?

    See if she asks you back out for another date or offers to pay.

    start taking her on dates that don't require much money. have you kissed her or anything?
    Your attitude determines your altitude.

    Usually don't know you're being used for sure until you go dating a few times and notice a attitude when they pay for even some of the dinner or whatever.
    Or they may seem to have a lack of interest if you don't have exciting & crazy entertaing nights everytime you both go on dates.

    I tend to aviod telling potential dates what my occupation is and what sort of income I have.
    I don't like to give ANY indication to how much money I earn where I can help it.
