You will take it as bad manner if you are not informed in advance? OK, cultural differences perhaps.

I was out with a girl last night, she always insists and is annoyed if I attempt to pay for her. 2 reasons, she has her own money and is not looking to be kept and (2) she hates the sexists assumption that the man must pay for the privilege.

My suspicion is that money is at the bottom of it.

if i were you, i would have said to the waiter that i would pay the bill and didn't ask him for money,because he had no enough money. And then see how he reacted.
