I'm late, but this would definitely be a deal breaker for me. Maybe I am old fashioned, but I always at least offer the tip.

It means the woman he's dating has enough intelligence and indepedence to know she isn't his doormat.
Do you financially support your husband? Are you his sugar momma?

I would have walked out on that date. Cheap man! A dollar tip?! What an insult! Move on!

Not at all! That's the new way! Or at least half-way to the new way!

Deal Breaker. Kick Rocks. Look how much you have already compromised your preference and your reward is someone being cheap with you on the first date. F & L (first and last date). No doubt about it. His money is probably too thinly spread between child support and ex-wife. Keep it moving.
**$1 tip is an indication of no class.
You two are on two different pages.
(Dude could have at least offered to make you dinner or something if he knew he didn't have money for the both of you.)
