Re: being cheap and deciding what to do

Well, to be honest, I don't like the sound of it. How old is your bf? Does he have a job? Being cheap is not the greatest personality trait in a man. Yes, I was in that situation. Dated the guy for four years. I was 22 when I met him and he was 36, but still, he would always ask me to split everything in half! He only paid for dinner if it was my birthdays, other times I paid half. No presents either, only a small present for my birthday or christmas and that's it. I wasn't very happy about it, so I understand how you must feel. Mine also only bought me cheap jewellery twice. I don't know..I feel that if a man always insists on this "equal" crap and never wants to go out of his way to make you feel special, it's not good. He doesn't have to spend loads of money either, just show that he's thoughtful and that he thinks about you. How is he otherwise in the relationship? Is he also stingy with other things like affection, attention, compliments, etc?
