Date protocol: when the check comes

First date etiquette: Going to dinner on a first date. I'm always uncomfortable about what to do when the check comes. I always offer to pay for my portion/split the bill. Some guys are offended by this, and even those who aren't typically refuse so I put my money away. I always worry that my offer seemed disingenuous because I didn't persist (I hate making a scene, especially about money. What is the best/appropriate way to handle the situation when the check comes?
