Am i dating a cheap guy
Looking groomed and well put-together can cost money.
Instead of wearing a nice jacket out to a fancy dinner, he chose to wear the only option in his closet -- a plaid jacket from a decade ago.
I’m not saying he has to have his whole career planned out, but if he blows off work when he doesn’t feel like going, quits or gets fired because he’s too lazy or the job is too boring, this guy still doesn’t know life isn’t always about doing whatever he wants to do all the time. A man doesn’t worry about who’s at fault — it doesn’t matter.
If he doesn’t have your back when you get into a confrontation (even if he doesn’t agree with you), he either doesn’t give a shit about you or he’s a coward. There’s nothing productive about assigning or arguing about blame. It’s been said many times that arguing in relationships is a good thing — it proves you’re both invested.
And a grown-up man knows there’s no way to win an argument with a woman, anyway. You’re an independent, 21st-century woman — you don’t need a man to pay your bills.
On average, men tend to leave higher tips than women, shows a study by Deloitte Tax LLP in October 2006, published in Southern Economic Journal.
However, you notice your man chooses to leave a less-than-appropriate tip after you had the perfect meal at your favorite restaurant in town -- the reservations were honored, your food was to die for and the server was attentive and pleasant.
If every Sunday morning, you can't get in touch with your man because he's scouring the weekend paper for coupons, your man's cheap behavior may interfere with your relationship. If he refuses to buy a new gallon of milk just because it isn't on sale or he doesn't have a coupon -- despite the fact the gallon in his fridge has been expired for two weeks -- this behavior should serve as a red flag.
If you find the perfect shirt for him when you two are shopping at the mall but he won't buy it because it was only half price, instead of 75% off, you might want to reevaluate your tolerance of his cheap behavior.
