Coffee/date etiquette

So, you start seeing someone and it's like . . . who pays for what? do you split? do you take turns? i don't get it.
i'm seeing a young man and i think, upon seeing my apartment, he decided i have more money than i actually have. or maybe we're just taking turns. for instance, today, we went to get coffee. and the starbucks girl saw that we were together and charged us together and young man only had two bucks in his hand. i handed her cash for both and waved his bills away. but it's like how do you know? when in doubt in these situations, i either offer to pay for me or i just pay but the guy's in sales. and has a job where he TRAVELS. surely he has more responsibility and thus, more money.
i sound like an asshole.
soy lattes are good.

I can hear my mom telling me that the best thing to do would be to comunicate - but that is awkward.
I'd say just keep a running tally in your head and make sure you don't end up being the sugger momma for this guy.

I was about to give advice when I realize you bought me beer last night. So, since I've been Douche LaRouche, I'll suggest that you use me as a segues. Like, "I bought John a beer last night because his computer exploded and he had to replace parts and that wiped him out for a month financially and we all do that for each other because none of are saving anything because if you pooled all our resources we'd average about half of jack shit."
