I met Colin about 6 years ago on match.com. Colin is Italian, almost 10 years older than me, super tall, stocky build, with salt & pepper hair, goatee, blue eyes, big nose, and a cute smile.
For our first date, we went to the movies, which he had tickets he had purchased as discount tickets through his work. After the movie, he took me to Pizzeria Uno’s. We shared an app and a pie of pizza while discussing the movie. When the server brought the bill, he insisted that he pays. He pulls out a piece of paper, which was a Groupon deal for a free appetizer when you get a pizza pie. We also went out to get some ice cream, which he had a coupon for also.
Yes, cost-of-living is definitely sky high and we all need to pinch-a-penny. I myself love couponing and there is nothing more gratifying to see the amount I saved on the CVS receipt. I just found it somewhat silly that Colin only did things for our dates based on savings. (BTW, see post from 05.10.2015 about coupon for a blow job)
Regardless, I really liked him and we spent a lot of time together. He was really good in bed too and a good snuggler. We dated for several months and he asked for me to move in with him. At the time, I was not ready for a serious relationship and I was seeing two other guys at the same time. I broke up with him to explain that it would not be fair for me to date him if he was looking for something I was not ready for. Besides, I don’t know if I have all that patience to clip coupons from Sunday papers to go grocery shopping.
