Had about 10 dates with him.
Paid for myself on each date (which is fine by me)
Tomorrow night he has invited me to his for a Mexican themed night (just me and him)
He said he is making some tacos and I said il bring some starters /wedges/dips,and a few little ready made cocktails.
He said he will buy some tequila for margaritas..then says shall we go halfs on the cost of the margarita ingredients?
I'm sorry but I think that's stingy?

YANBU - what kind of boyfriend can't treat his girlfriend to a margarita for fucks sake

Urgh, how unattractive!

He’s hosting, he should get them in as he invited you.

Now he has just screenshot a pic of the tequila and something else that goes in it and said £12 each including lemon ..

Yeah that's really tight. You don't invite someone for dinner and then ask for half the cost. It's always polite to offer to bring something like you have but yeah he sounds stingy. What a turn off!

That is stingy. He could buy beer if he didn't want to splash out on tequila hmm File it away and think about whether this is a long term prospect.

That sounds like fun!!!! Not

Kellyohojn Fri 06-Oct-17 21:59:25

I made sure I brought the starters plus some dessert over ..already spent about £17.
I'm a bit turned off if I'm honest

Hand him a p45.

£12 each? I'd cancel

Kellyohojn Fri 06-Oct-17 22:00:01

I've never even tried it before so more than likely I will have 1 and that's it

Butterymuffin Fri 06-Oct-17 22:00:19

'including lemon'? So you are expected to go halves on the lemon? That's a sacking offence now. He's the lemon. 🍋

Take the receipts and a calculator. . .

Kellyohojn Fri 06-Oct-17 22:00:46

We got a takeaway last week and he said you pay for the pizza and il get the chips /dips/drinks ...

Kellyohojn Fri 06-Oct-17 22:01:10

Think he meant lemonade grin

WineIsMyMainVice Fri 06-Oct-17 22:01:55

I’d cancel too! Sorry but this doesn’t bode well....

monkeywithacowface Fri 06-Oct-17 22:01:56

Seriously why are you bothering with him?

Nanny0gg Fri 06-Oct-17 22:01:56

I wouldn't bother going.

There's nothing worse than a stingy person.

Kellyohojn Fri 06-Oct-17 22:02:42

He has already bought the meat for the tacos apparently ...he would probably send me a invoice for the beef

MrsPestilence Fri 06-Oct-17 22:03:00

FFS it is lime with tequila, LTB

You could try telling him that you would prefer it if you could just take it in turns to pay on each date, so he pays one time, you pay the next. See what he says to this reasonable request, then decide if you want to stay with him.

I don't think it's a good sign of things to come OP.

LastGirlOnTheLeft Fri 06-Oct-17 22:07:52

<sigh> it annoys me no end to see women writing posts like this!! Look, so you think for one minute this fucker would be asking advice if YOU were the stingy one?? No way- he would drop you like a hot brick!!!

COME ON!!!!! Value yourself more than this shit!!!

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow1 Fri 06-Oct-17 22:11:41

you DO deserve better. You deserve a boyfriend who buys you a cocktail on a Saturday night - you really do sad

I'd bin him and move on

No, no, no, no, no... He's invited you to his place so he provides food and drinks. You take a bottle and maybe some chocolates. Drop him now or you'll be back here in 6 months complaining even more.
