There is a fine line between being cheap and being frugal or financially responsible. And I think we can all agree that people – men and woman, lover or friend – cheap people really fucking suck. Outlining the differences is for another article, but these annoying tightwads are plaguing the modern dating scene and we need to put a stop to this madness. Not wanting to date a cheap person does not mean you are a gold digger which is an all-too-common misconception about women. Those who are cheap are often afraid to spend money. They are willing to sacrifice quality, value, and time in order to cash in on some short-term savings. Those who are frugal are resourceful with their spending, maximizing their dollars. You can be a frugal person and not be cheap. You can also detest cheap people without being a gold digger. We have teamed up with dating blog The Single Society to bring you the stories of several different women and their encounters with extreme cheapskates who went to ridiculously pathetic lengths to save a buck. If you have a story about a date with a total tightwad please be sure to share it right here. Thanks!
