There are some men who are, let’s be honest, cheap. I’m not talking about the guys who don’t have a lot of money but who will spend every dime they have on you (don’t take advantage of them!). I’m not talking about the guys who are financially responsible, trying to make sure their bills are paid and still show you a good time. I’m talking about the guys who try to spend as little money as possible to get into your panties.
A nice but poor boy may take you on a picnic, take you to a matinee movie, will read you his favorite book at the local bookstore. He may not have a lot of money to spend on you but he’ll pay attention to what you like and be creative about showing you a good time.
A cheapskate will ask you to coffee and already be sitting with his cup (but not yours – he didn’t know what you wanted) by the time you get there. A cheapskate will take you to dinner and then tell you that he’s not that hungry figuring you won’t want to eat more than him on a date. A cheapskate will want to spend every Friday night with his feet on your coffee table and eating from your pantry. In short, a cheapskate is wholly unimaginative and will do as little as possible in his attempts to woo you.
I’ll be the first person to say that having a good time doesn’t require a lot of money if you’re with the right person. If you’re with the wrong person, there isn’t enough money in the world to make that time entertaining. Don’t waste your time on the wrong guy and don’t order the salad – always order the steak.
