Being frugal sexy?

I was listening to the Frank and Wanda radio show on the way to work yesterday. They were talking about dating frugal people and someone said that using a coupon on a date was not sexy. Seriously! Being smart about money is a turn off?

How does using a coupon kill the romance on a date, though? If a guy whipped out a coupon, groupon, or even foursquare check-in discount, do you know how impressed I would be?

It’s like some women have this fantasy of being wooed by wealthy men, and a coupon kind of jolts them back to “practical reality” or something.

Have you ever used a coupon or discount deal on a date? If not, would you be opposed to it?

Would it bother you to date someone who is frugal?

Afternoon all,
I am not a couponer. I don’t mind a good deal tho but I don’t go out of my way to find one. Even if I did have a deal I’d probably shy away from it on the first date just cause. I don’t and won’t bash either side. I do however tend to frequent places that have built in coupons per se` like good happy hour specials.

girls are playing softball and kickball and cheerleading so it has come a way. I would think they would use the same models they have used for the boys for logistics but it doesn’t seem like the girls are top priority and its an ugly taste….the kids don’t get it but I do as an adult.

Hey Everyone.

I’m sure we’re way off topic, but I’ll say a lil’ something. I see the value in couponing, but it’s time-consuming, and I honestly haven’t been able to invest the time to make it worthwile. I have a cousin who saves $100 to $200 on groceries alone each month, but he has a whole binder full of coupons that he keeps in his car, and he’s always clipping. As far as coupons and restaurants, I don’t see it any differently than coupons I get in the mail for oil changes, vacations, or anything else. If I find it valuable, and I was already planning on spending that money for that thing, then I’ll use the coupon all day. I’d be foolish not to. I’m not trying to impress anyone by doing that either. If my date doesn’t like it, that’s fine. There are dudes out there who will be exactly what she wants and never ever use a coupon, just like there are women who won’t mind if I do. You gotta pitch to those who are buying what you’re selling.

Afternoon, all!

Coupons? I use them if I have them and if it’s something I use regularly or would like to try. I wouldn’t have a problem with a guy using a coupon on a date. I’ll admit I would feel a little weird at first, but I’d rather have a date who used a coupon than one who was a poor tipper.
