This penny-pinching peon started grabbing his lunches for the , by the handful. The signs are there, you just have to pay attention. I always split stuff down the middle with my other half in the early days so now he doesn't mind splashing the cash on the odd expensive gift or outing cos he knows that's not what I'm with him for (not that I'm suggesting that was your aim!
Two people who like each other go out and engage in fun activities. Women deserve to be taken out and romanced a bit, even more so when things are all shiny and new.
Maybe I can get her to fall for the old ‘let’s just hang out and watch movies’ line.” Ladies, next time a guy tries this line, insist that he come over to and sobing uncontrollably.
Hmm…let me decode this for you: “I want to get laid, but I don’t want to spend any money or go anywhere.
How many times have you heard a guy say: “I’m not into dating. I like to just hang out with a girl and see how it goes,”?
The cheapskates of the world have convinced single men and women that dating is outdated and useless.
The guy who thinks he can just pop in a DVD and order a pepperoni pizza on your “date” is not worth your time or energy. But I take offence that its always because the guy doesn't want to spend the cash.
(Unless, of course, Blockbuster and Round Table are totally up your alley.) If he’s unexciting when you’re dating, just think about 6 months from now: You’ll ask him to go out to a new lounge, and he’ll tell you that he wants to chill at home because there’s a marathon on that night. If a guy cant be bothered to wrap a present, go out to dinner or generally doesn't want to go out, It's more likely that he's just not that into you, rather than he's tight.
Then, he’ll ask you for money to pay the take-out delivery guy. When we broke up two months later, I realized that he had never taken me out, even . He’s always borrowing a couple of bucks and never returning them. Instead of going out and renting a DVD, he makes you watch his DVD because he owns it - and “it’s the best one of the trilogy”. He hates double dates because he has to pony up the same amount as the other dude. I'm not saying that they need to spend a fortune or that *going dutch* isn't an option, but there is a distinct difference between between being a freakin' cheapskate and wanting to share financial responsibility. (obviously if he borrows money and doesn't pay you back or asks you to pay for petrol when he picks you up, thats another story!
I once met a guy who said he wanted to skip dating because he just wanted to be with me. He had received all my affection and time without ever having to take me out. He should’ve quit his job detailing cars and worked for NASA or run for office. If you are dating one of these close-fisted wonders – run! There’s no need to settle for a zero when you could be meeting great guys who want to take you out on real dates – ones that don’t involve delivery. Once I asked this guy out for dinner (should have been my first sign he didn't like me) and BEFORE we went out to dinner we had to stop by JC Penny so he could buy some pants..THEN when we got to dinner he apparently didn't have any cash..I had to pay. Did you not just use you credit card to by some ugly slacks? ) Also, theres no excuse really for not dating, theres lots of low budget things you can do that mean you can spend some quality time together, picnics, walks in the park, museums & art galleries, or if you like the outdoors, go camping!
