Met a guy got on well.
Had two dates previous and split the bill 50/50 and always have done as I think the man shouldn't pay BUT last night we went out to the pub and I was ordering a cocktail and him a pint.
I said "oh il get this round and you can get the next"
He said "your cocktail costs more than my pint"
I didn't even think about the price,I just thought rather than us buying drinks separate.
So I just got the drinks separately.
I would of happily got a cheaper drink or got him a more expensive but at this point I was a bit taken back.
My cocktail was £4.25 and his best £3.65 so not a lot of difference.
Now I'm thinking he is a bit tight?

Beer not best

What a tight arse
If your cocktail was £9 fair enough
Dump him

Yep seems tight to me

chitofftheshovel Sat 05-Aug-17 10:03:47

That is tight as fuck and I'd run a mile if I were you.

FannyFifer Sat 05-Aug-17 10:03:55

I could not go on a further date with someone as tight as that.

Yeah that's tight, especially since you were buying the first round and always went 50/50 (rightly) on meal bills. But quibbling over £1 fuck that.

Yes. He is a tight arse. Dump him.

Mamadothehump Sat 05-Aug-17 10:03:59

Yes, he is!! Would put me off TBH

OverTheHammer Sat 05-Aug-17 10:04:00

He sounds a cock. I would ditch, it's the sign of things to come. Nothing worse than a tight arse.

CockacidalManiac Sat 05-Aug-17 10:04:02

Yes, that's a tight thing to say.
As is often said on these threads; meanness is not sexy.

The80sweregreat Sat 05-Aug-17 10:04:04

Nothing worse than a tight wad. Yanbu.

HughLauriesStubble Sat 05-Aug-17 10:04:28

Yanbu it'd be one thing if you expected him to buy you a drink outright but him refusing to go in rounds cos your drink was more expensive was just tight shock

Run. Run fast.

Not a good sign unfortunately....

Guiltypleasures001 Sat 05-Aug-17 10:04:52

Yes he is, and he doesn't present himself in the most flattering light, with such a direct crappy comment
Honestly I probably would have left shortly after

shivermytimbers Sat 05-Aug-17 10:04:58

Yes - very tight arsed! That would get on my nerves too much to continue seeing him. Can't bear quibblers!

Miamiabeer Sat 05-Aug-17 10:05:10

Phew ..I thought I was just letting my head run away with me.
He has never even offered me a drink(which is fair enough but would be nice to offer)

TurnipCake Sat 05-Aug-17 10:05:26

Better to find out now. I'd move onto the next

RedBullBlood Sat 05-Aug-17 10:05:34

Miserably tight.

John4703 Sat 05-Aug-17 10:05:36

YANBU He was wrong. If two people are out it is normal to buy each other drinks and not worry about a small price difference.

luckylucky24 Sat 05-Aug-17 10:05:59

Very tight! I don't think I would see him again.

Ragusa Sat 05-Aug-17 10:06:56

Ugh. How unattractive. He must have been joking?! Surely?? If you're sure he wasn't, then it'does be a big byeeeeee! from me

GeillisTheWitch Sat 05-Aug-17 10:06:58

YANBU if there was only a 60p difference between drinks, that is tight.

ImperialBlether Sat 05-Aug-17 10:07:03

Sometimes you just want to cry, don't you? I'm glad you've discovered what he's like so early on, OP, but I think I would've gone home when he said that. 55p difference, ffs.

Run for the hills! Imagine a future with him quibbling everything, he sounded tight and petty, Next!
