To "go dutch" put simply, is to have each person pay for their own self on a date.

I usually go dutch with friends but not with the guy that 's dating. I would rather be alone than split bill or giving a money.

Good use of 'go dutch' - let me correct the ending there:

...but not with a guy I'm dating. I would rather be alone than split the bill or pay for the date.

You should check out the dating and marriage culture forum - we have a few conversations on this very topic.
