I always buy drinks for female friends and they also buy me drinks. Overall I buy more for them, but I make more money than them and they're like sisters to me so it's all good.

I have some male friends that will insist on paying when we go out. Since I'm married - I can safely say that it doesn't mean anything!

My male friends and I tend to be 50/50 when we go out. Sometimes, they'll buy me dinner (which is nice). I have one friend who takes me out to dinner in exchange for my doing computer work for him. Intent for paying has never been misconstrued by either party.

Regularly, and it's just being a good host.

When I go out with male friends they almost always pay for drinks...etc.

It's either common practice among people my age or people I associate with. I've never asked them to pay for me, the bill is usually settled before it even gets to the table.

As a guy, I sometimes pay for my female friends. I also sometimes pay for my male friends. Sometimes my female friends pay for me. Sometimes my male friends pay for me.

I don't think it means anything related to what you think it means.
