Dealing with relationships, friendships and other social headaches.

I asked this girl to Prom a few months ago and she said yes. I bought our tickets and am renting my own tux but the other day she presented me with a list of my share of our Prom expenses. This girl is just a friend, she’s not my girlfriend and never has been and yet she expects me to pay for half of her dress and shoes! She also made plans to go in a limo with 3 of her friends and their dates and she wants me to pay all of the limo cost. She says the other guys are paying for their dates in the same way but I feel like she’s playing me. I don’t even know the other guys going in the limo and I hardly know her friends. What should I do? Do I really need to pay for all of this??
