I think it's perfectly acceptable provided you have an established relationship with whatever person you're dining with. People are less inclined to negatively judge you for using a coupon if they already know you (unless they already think you're a cheapskate).

So, in line with what most everyone else said, on a first date or a business meeting with clients no, but any other circumstance go ahead.

Oh yes, my friend. Better to be thought reckless, extravagant and ever so slightly dangerous, than mean, cautious and likely to finish before she does!

It might work, but you better express some pride for using a coupon. I wouldn't try to slip it by while she's nibbling on dessert. You'll look like a minion. If you're a shameless person who usually has a slightly condescending candor (like Metro) and have no problem joking with her about how little you're trying impress her, I would say go for it. She might even find it attractive knowing she's not important enough for you to modify your behavior. Not giving a fuck is a highly desired characteristic of mates. But if that's not your personality, don't do it.

Oh i'd never do that on a first date. Dinner? Date 1? Rookie mistake... just stick with drinks


OK, Girlfriends B-day is in 2 weeks. Been dating about a year. So for that "Special" day, is it cheesy?

The ultimate paradox, but true.

I asked my wife about this last night. Curiously, she answered that it would not be a turn off in the slightest given an otherwise normal context. That is, so long as the dinner weren't too early or they weren't limited in their choice of entree it would be fine. In fact, she said, it would demonstrate that he is cautious with money yet still knows how to have a good time with it.

There's a fine line between thrifty and cheap, practical and downright selfish. As far as first impressions go, it'd probably be safer to steer clear out of all, for the sake of misconception.

No place worth going to for a special occasion if they have coupons

That's probably because your wife is mature. As women grow and mature, many TEND to use more of their brain and less of their heart, esp after marriage. The exact same question, if put to single women in their mid- (or even late-) 20s, would like produce very different answers. You can't really compare the answers of married women with thoae of single women. I've usually seen big differences.

While I think there's a small percentage of women that would appreciate a guy that's frugal, you really limit your chances of dating a hot one if you bust out a coupon. If you're intent on severely limiting your dating pool, go right ahead.
