When Can You Start Being Cheap?

While discussing dating with a friend, the topic of coupon usage came up. At what point in a relationship is it alright to use a coupon on a date. Ideally, you should be able to use one at any juncture of the relationship. Unfortunately, not all women feel that way. The use of a coupon too early along in the dating cycle can signal to some that you are cheap. As much as you may disagree, it is definitely true. However, my rule of thumb is that if a woman that I am dating is the type that would look down upon me for using a coupon, then they probably aren't the type of woman that I would want to date anyway. Unfortuantely, sometimes the thinker below the belt has another agenda. Sometimes the use of the coupon can get in the way of that agenda at which time all principle flies out the window. So I say, use those coupons as early as you want, but just remember that sometimes you might have to swallow your pride about the coupon in order to get the most bang for your buck.
