Question Ok to use a coupon on a date?

Ok, going out on our third date. Going to get some dinner and go bowling.

After I suggested bowling I decided to sign up for the lane's newsletter. My first email from them was a free game for two.

Tacky to use a coupon?

My gut says yes. Because she could think it was the only reason I suggested bowling. Although, we did talk about bowling a few days ago.

Thoughts?

I'd probably lean away from using a coupon until she's your GF.

Then all bets are off, cause I'm so tight, I'm afraid I'm gonna start a fire when I walk.

LOL, dude that was funny Yeah, you are right. Dating is something else. You don't want to show to much of yourself until the other person would be comfortable with you.

Maybe if I can use the thing discretely I will. But if not...then I will save it for another time.

If it's something you'd normally do, use it. Hiding who you are is why so many relationships fail later. Dating is time to show who you are. That way if she sticks around, you know she really likes the real you instead of the one you were pretending to be.

I'd just, casually, mention that you'd signed up for the newsletter and got a coupon.

That true. I guess I'm not as cheap as I thought. I need to post a pic in my photo album of one of our favorite outdoor restaurant's. It on the Marina, we kick back and watch the sunsets and check out the views.

The problem is he's not going on a date with YOU! It's always better to be safe than sorry.
