#ThugLife We've all been in a similar situation, making up something so you don't have to say that you don't have cash. No hard feels...
I know not all girls would feel the same as I do, but being a student who works part time and knows the effort it takes to earn money, I can honestly say I would prefer my boyfriend to tell me in this instance, although if it was a bf of a year I'd be offering to split the cost of the date or pay for myself anyway
I'm sure she appreciated dinner! I'm sorry you couldn't take her out to the movie though, next time set a budget for each event maybe.
Yeah, next time definitely check out the menu beforehand to get an idea of what it will cost for the both of you if you're planning on taking her out somewhere fancy. I wish I could afford to take my boyfriend out to nice places like that, oh well that's what I get for being in college for 6 years. Hopefully next year I'll be banking.
At least you're trying! I usually go Dutch on dates so maybe that could be an option in the future? Or tell her the truth. I'm sure she'll understand :)
Usually what I do if the date involves two or more payments we would each split them equally ( such as if we went to a movie one would buy tickets while the other paid for the snacks and drinks). In this situation one would pay for dinner and the other for the movie, then a following date we would switch so one isn't always paying for the more expensive thing.
if you didnt have enough money why couldnt both of you just pay for your selves or half the bill. Im sure she wouldnt mind and would understand, shes been with you for a year
