I've only ever thought to use coupons at the grocery store so imagine my surprise when my date whipped out a buy 1 get 1 free coupon at dinner last night. On one hand I know he's being practical to save a little money when he can, on the other my interpretation of his using a coupon on a first date is that he's cheap. Am I overthinking the art of couponing and dating? Should that be an art form? I don’t think so.
No Second Date Thanks
Yikes. There's not a woman alive who would think that first date couponing was an acceptable thing to do. Third or fourth date, sure. So I definitely understand why you're considering not going on a second date with the guy. HOWEVER, you need to consider what he's like as a person and whether or not you enjoyed yourself on the date before totally writing the guy off. Did you have fun? Was it easy to have a conversation with him or were you constantly watching the clock? If you had fun, please give the guy another chance. It was just a coupon! At least he didn't use the coupon and then ask you to pay for the remainder of the bill. If that had happened I would be telling you good riddance!
Keep me posted,
