In our culture, when it's time to pay, it's important to fight to pay for the bill. Karama (generosity) is important between both friends and strangers. Effort should be made to fight for the bill as well. Not extending or offering to pay could be considered insulting. Giving up fighting for the bill too early can indicate the other person is stingy.

The easiest solution to ending the argument is asking the person to pay next time. This indicates you have an interest in meeting again.
