WINNIPEG, Sun Media -- Men are more interested in getting lucky on the first date than women, but most women still think men should pick up the tab.

They found 44% of men hope to score on the first date while 66% of women think the man should foot the bill.

FastLife is a speed-dating and singles event provider with 75,000 members worldwide, while Lavalife provides international online dating.

Results of their survey show times are not a-changin' as much as expected.
