Everyone knows that being cheap does not look good, but people do it anyway. Sometimes, the stories of the way people act make me cringe. Whether it’s a single date or an entire relationship, we need to hear some of the worst stories so we know what behavior to avoid. If you have a cheap date or cheap relationship stories to share, please let me know so we can share with everyone!
Who Pays For The Movie?
The first story comes from ‘Tiffany,’ whose story starts out the summer after high school. The experience started out innocently enough with a trip to the movie with a friend, ‘Mike.’ When they got to the theater, he didn’t offer to pay, which was fine since they were just going as friends.
A $4 Loan
The next time they hung out, they rented a movie, and at the Blockbuster (this was awhile ago), Tiffany saw a $4 DVD she wanted to buy. She didn’t have any money, so she asked if Mike could spot her. He agreed, and after they watched the movie, they were ready to go their separate ways. Mike said he’d only let Tiffany keep the DVD if she paid him back the $4, which she didn’t have at the moment. She was a bit surprised, and decided to just forget about it and let him keep the DVD (which he didn’t want anyway).
Laser Tag Is The Last Straw
Finally, they went to play laser tag on a Saturday night. He didn’t bring cash and they didn’t accept credit card, so Tiffany paid for both of them, assuming he would at least offer to pay her back. But, as I’m sure you guessed, he didn’t.
So the $4 DVD was a big deal, but when it was his turn to pay back the $15 for laser tag, it suddenly wasn’t an issue.
Needless to say, there was no romantic involvement and it wasn’t until over a year later that Tiffany found out that these were supposedly dates. If you want to date, you need to make your intentions clear and you need to offer to pay for things and not be so cheap! Wouldn’t those $19 have been worth it for a chance?
