If he is a cheapskate, stay away and count your blessings as they multiply like the balance of his savings account.
Being a cheapskate is not necessarily a gendered quality, but there are so many guys who are incredibly cheap that it may seem that way. Their cheapness can be born out of a childhood in which their family had little money, growing up in a third world country or just because they want to keep their money to themselves. Some cheap guys love shopping at dollar stores and buying useless crap there. Some take it even further and limit themselves to window shopping at dollar stores. My advice: be wary of the former and stay far away from the latter.

You should care if your guy is a cheapskate because on one level or another it will affect you. Now I’m not saying you’re a golddigger ot that you want your guy to buy you LV purses or Jimmy Choo shoes. Far from it, I’m sure. But who doesn’t want to feel special and loved with him splurging on you every now and again (did someone say flowers?)? Well, if you are seeing a guy who is a cheapskate you have to be prepared for him to raise his eyebrows when you order a second drink out at dinner or get dessert. Are you ready for that?

Guys who are cheapskates can be good partners. They will take you on walks in the countryside and take you for picnics in the park (provided they can cook). But they sure aren’t going to take you to that new restaurant in town that everyone’s been talking about and where you have to reserve a table a month ahead of time. It’s all about where you imagine yourself being happy: in a fancy restaurant with starched table clothes and four servers bringing you food prepared by a chef you’ve seen on tv or in the local pizza shop for the third time that week. The choice is yours because you know he’s not going to become a big spender over night (despite how many hints you drop).
