I swear darling, I didn't have my car repainted because I was saving up money to buy you more chicken nuggets from the dollar menu.
 
2013-08-30 09:17:10 AM  
Of course, that way there is more money for them to spend.

Savers is the name of a local chain of cheap Thrift Stores that I patronize. Coincidence? Maybe.

Nothing gets them pants juicier than ordering an extra chili with your jr bacon cheese man, then when back at your place you can sip on strawberry Boonsfarme and dem panties will drop like a rock

They marry the rich guy and cheat with the cheap guy.

Not true. My brother takes women on dates and splits a large meal to save money. He suffers from a severe lack of second dates.

It is the 100 texts he sends the day after the date that turns them off. He didn't tell you about that.

"Ron Lieber, a columnist for the New York Times, for example, got dating website eHarmony to scan through the millions of matches made in 2010. The site concluded that members who described themselves as savers actually managed to attract 25 percent more messages from suitors compared with those who called themselves spenders." - FTA

Reading between the lines, saver = not living paycheck to paycheck

I guess I am meeting the wrong women. The last girl I dated would call and say lets go out to dinner (never once reached for a check) I paid for EVERYTHING.

Ghetto Cowboy agrees with you.  He'd like to point out the strawberry margherita in his hand is the portable version.

Poor guys with small penises get all the women. That explains why I'm single. Curse you, my riches and extra large genitalia, curse you!

/how YOU doin'?
 
2013-08-30 09:36:56 AM  
There can be only one spender in the relationship and guess who that's going to be?

She wants lobster?  I'm thinking Burger King.

Yeah but think of all the money he's saving by not getting a second date.

megarian: Well that was specific.


Once something works, people have a tendency to try it over and over again.  See: popped collar polo shirts, 70's tube socks and gold chains on old, fat dudes. If my wife leaves me, all I have from my dating period is some tails for playing riff-raff @ RHPS and an alt.flame t-shirt that reads "Go jump in a goddamn volcano, you farking cave newt".  Pretty much guaranteed I'm going to die somewhere alone in a ditch.

Only got twenty dollars in my pocket.  This is farking awesome.

Right?  If you blow it up, you can see there's "G" embossed right in the pattern.  I mean dude rides a horse, which is cheaper than owning a vehicle, and he carries his panty-dropper booze with him.  Tough to be cheaper than that, and no taking three buses to meet at your favorite whataburger.

I'm lucky because my girlfriend is very modest even though she comes from a rich family. She has no expectations of large or expensive meals, etc. I make good money so we can do nice things, but considering her ND fan dad dropped like 20k to go to the national championship game and walked out after 1 quarter, she could be worse. A lot worse.

If women date cheap men, then Drew must have them lined up around the block.

Found a bug on the site, reported it, and now it's fixed.  Got a "thanks!" note, but do I get any TF love?  Nope.  Cheap bastage.

I work with a guy whose wife has NEVER worked; her favorite hobby is ...wait for it... shopping (and maxing out their credit cards), then applying for more without his knowing 'til he gets the first bill.  He has had to file for bankruptcy once.

Well, after the 1st time he made up a budget which she followed for a while but now completely ignores.  He recently told me that he'd had to have his direct deposit stopped until he could open "his own" bank account.

I swear I'd ditch anybody that farked up my life the way she has his; however I feel this guy is screwed because they've been married for some time and she has never worked so he would end up having to pay her the equivalent of a living wage so why bother?  I should add that he is a very good employee and tries his hardest to keep the wheels on.  Sad, kind of.

FTFA:  "people have started lying and describing themselves as savers on dating profiles"    Whaaaaaa?  People lie on their online dating profiles?  Say it ain't so!

If you get it tattooed somewhere, be sure to start a TFD photoshop thread.  Might be actually worth resubscribing to see that.  Particularly after the Queen gets it on her forehead.

well i earn more than my fiance, who's 7 years younger than me, and while he's ok now, he used to be TERRIBLE with money. to the point where I cut a deal with him that I would put his credit card debt in my name so we could get it on a 0% interest deal quickly, in return for me making ALL the money decisions for at least a year

ie, it's not just women

Not that he'll listen but his wife needs help. There's "Woops, I spent a little extra money this month, sorry" and there's flat out being an addict.  Lying about it and hiding your expenditures to the point of forced bankruptcy is in the second category.

Women like to date frugal men, just not frugal men with nothing to show for it.

2013-08-30 11:31:33 AM  
Cheap guys are controlling. That must be the initial attraction. Controlling isn't creepy till it's too late to call for help.

Not exactly the result of historical research. In fact I'd say author is stupefyingly, awkwardly dumdassed.
