My friend Jeff is part of a blogger brawl. You should all vote for him here! He is hilarious and an amazing writer and just deserves it...so vote!
In his blog, he says this: "Just one more question to verify: Is it rude to use a coupon on a date? Jeff says yes. New Era says not at all! What? You mean, not only am I lacking in dating expertise, I've also missed out on chances to save money all these years? Good grief."
This set off a spark of electrical thought-currents in my mind. Would you believe me if I said that I had one long-term boyfriend whom I would not go out to eat with unless we had a coupon? I was the culprit all the way. Even now, I jump in with suggestions on where we should eat on dates based on where I have a coupon, although this is not the lone determining factor these days.
Does using a coupon make me think a man is cheap or poor or thinks I am not good enough for full-price? NO! Coupon-usage makes me think how smart and economical this young man must be. How he is saving his money for our long and fruitful life together.
I have other friends who have shared with me they do find it unappealing when a man uses a coupon on a date.
To coupon or not to coupon? That is the question.
