When a couple has been together for a while one can start to notice trends in their partner, especially when it comes to their spending. One can become more aware of what they do and do not spend money on, and more particularly how that applies to their relationship. How can one get use to their partner’s spending habits?
I use to date a guy that would spend so much money on his car than anything else. No matter the price if his car needed it he would get it. However, when it would come to us going out on a date and it was his turn to pay he would pinch every penny. We would go out for fast food and he would get upset if I ordered a combo or something that wasn’t a certain price.
If we went to a restaurant then prices would again be an issue along I would have to get water instead of a drink. At first it frustrated me because I wasn’t ordering the most expensive thing, it would be reasonable, but he would rather put the money into his car. I had to get use to his spending habits and ultimately him being cheap. We started paying for our own meals until we stopped dating.
A person’s spending habits can be frustrating but it’s their money and they can do that. The other person just has to get use to it and do what works for them. Maybe when a couple is married things change, but when one is dating someone’s money is just that their money.
