Skimping on the tip is the wrong way to save when courting a love interest
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2012 -- For many, dealing with a personal budget can take up a considerable chunk of time, and thus cuts into the opportunity for one’s dating and social life. There are no rules that state you need to shell out piles of cash to impress your potential partner.
3 On Your Side has found frugal dating is on the rise, likely due to the general tone of the economy and rising prices for consumables. Because of that, coupons are a useful alternative to avoiding social interaction.
Dinner, drinks, movies or showcases can add up to paying a hefty sum as you get to know your date. Wooding a lovely potential love interest need not cut so deeply into your cashflow.
According to recent surveys, a surprisingly large percentage of persons surveyed said they have utilized coupons on a first date. Nearly 25% of individuals admitted to the money-saving tactic. That is up 8% from last year’s survey.
Some may be concerned that being thrifty and money conscious is a turnoff to a date. However, 26% of individuals say that they would have a positive reaction to a date being aware enough to utilize the financial aid. Another 73% stated that it could even lead to a second date.
Amongst those surveyed, 12% said they would not go on a second date with a person based upon the use of a coupon. A minimal 3% would find the action offensive.
A mere 1% said they would end the date on the spot, and thus only the most paranoid of those footing the bill could be concerned of a abrupt negative reaction to a money-conscious act.
Experts do say that saving money by skimping on the tip is not the way to go. Cheating the service shows a lack of sympathy for the job, while utilizing a coupon is a sign of being aware of personal finances.
