Is it okay to split the bill on a first date?

Hi I'm a 24 year old guy, and I met this girl on an online dating site. We've been chatting online for nearly 1 and a half months and we're fixing a date.

It's just a coffee date, not dinner. I don't plan to eat, I might just order a coffee or tea. It is kind of an expensive place though.

Will she be expecting me to pay for the entire bill? Is it rude if I expect her to split the bill? How do I bring it up? Lets say the waiter hands me the bill.......what do I do at that exact moment?
