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?

ITL – Imma have to get off of this thing, y’all know I’m a crybaby. I get touched when I think about my mama and daddy’s struggles. Sunshine, Kesslers, Giant Food, franks and beans…all of it. Keeping the family together, keeping the kids home, warm food in our tummies and a roof. Might not have been allllll of that but it was all good :)

Pops looking down and mom’s hanging in there. Spent my day with her yesterday treating her to lunch and watching movies.

I proud of being a crybaby and touched easily. Speaking of crying, I do it at movies, watchng documentaries, hearing stories of folks overcoming all of it.

Okay I’m heading somewhere else now. Gotta go…got a date!!

ITL – Deets in private…maybe. You know folks hang on and will hang you out to dry on here. So I learned early on and from others…DO NOT PUT IT OUT THERE.

Gotta run….and yep, what your granny said…exactly!!

2years, okay, after 2, a lady can ask, but the bigger question is, if he doesn’t say want the lady wants, is she prepared to keep loving him, which is a trap some women put themselves in…if her feelings are dependent on that answer (marriage I suppose), then does she love the dude and relationship in the first place. We do not respond well to ultimatums

@Jake: :shock: You think women should wait 2 years before the “where do you see this going” conversation??? Um, I think we must be defining that convo differently…..

ITL, no I don’t think that….Slim noted that this potential convo was after 2years. I just think that its a slippery slope, becuase I was there, at that point, I was not ready to be married, and honestly was just enjoying it being us, but I wasn’t thinking marriage yet….it really all depends on that man’s station in life…can he afford the responsibility of marriage, which is an answer he knows better than anyone. Here is the trick, if he isn’t saying it, he isn’t thinking it…if he isn’t talking in we’s and our’s, he probably is there yet.

Gotcha. I missed that Slim was talking about a 2-year relationship.

Love this: if he isn’t saying it, he isn’t thinking it

I think it is a crying shame!!! A man wants to cut corners with you on a dinner date, then expects you to serve him the best and most expensive dessert on the menu afterwards!!!~Give me a break!!!
