1. When he sets the date in his house
Some guys could be so annoying and forceful; they would insist on you coming over to their house on a first date. Stingy guys do this in order not to spend much. Most ladies are usually edgy and unsure about having the first date in the men’s houses. Some shameless men go on to manipulate the ladies by making them cook. When he does all these, then you should know your date is stingy.
2. He uses a "coupon"… on your first date.
Dating can be pricey and there are a lot of great deals out there. But on a first date, it's important to give a good first impression. I'm all for Living Social and other discount couponing, but if you want to be dating social—a new term I'm coining for singles who exhibit appropriate date behavior—then save your frugal joy for later. Talking about and using coupons on a first date is as sexy as ranting about your ex. Once you are in a relationship, it's fine to use coupons to stretch your dating dollars and have more fun together!
3. He says he already ate at home.
If you know you're going out to eat, why on earth would you fill up at home beforehand? If he has asked you out for a meal, he should know that it is an experience to be shared. You can eat alone any time, but sharing dinner or lunch with someone is a special thing. Cheating you out of eating together can be an indicator that he cuts corners in a lot of ways.
4. When he complains about the cost of the meal you ordered.
When you are on a date with a guy and he cannot stop talking about the expenses he has to cover because of the date, then you should know that he is really stingy. You can bet he would make you feel uncomfortable with his constant nagging. He may deviate and tell you about the major projects he is handling in order for you to know that he has lots of responsibilities.
5. When he suggests you share bills.
Honestly, some guys in this part of the world are shameless. They take you on dates and suggest you split the cost. If you experience this on your first date, then your date is very stingy. But if you actually suggested it and he agreed, then he has failed the first test.
