  • To me it would be a sign that he is frugal and smart. I would watch for signs that he is not cheap though. And if I was really liking him otherwise I would always keep our monies separate if we married. He can do what he wants with his and vice versa. Plus we could contribute to a joint account for all our joint expenses (anything having to do with the house, utilities, vacations, etc). I heard a financial advisor recommend this to all couples actually. So, it wouldn't be a deal breaker for me if I liked him otherwise.

  • Wow haha! Being frugal is a great thing, but not on a first date!

  • It either leaves him with more money to spend on the next date or it makes it possible for the date to happen at all. How are those a bad thing?

  • i wouldnt have an issue with that as long as it wasnt a fast food coupon then hes just cheap. i mean that tells me he is a saver and knows whats important and is working/saving towards that.

  • Being frugal is great....but not a great way to impress a lady.

  • Depends on the coupon. Buy one get one free? Save $4. How old ya'll are. Was he married before? Maybe he's saving up for your engagement ring, LOL.

  • I don't think I have an issue with it if I can order what I like. I'd have to say it wouldn't be a deal breaker though I would be cautious after that.

  • I don't think it's a big deal. I wouldn't blame him for wanting to save money. Then again, I'm not too concerned with making a social faux pas.

  • Nothing really, so he likes to save a few bucks.
