It’s a tale as old as time: you’re in a relationship where one of you is a saver and one of you is a spender. I know – I’m in that relationship right now. I am as frugal as they come. I’m happy to eat in every night, wear thrift store clothes, and watch Netflix.
My boyfriend is by no means a flashy big spender, but he definitely enjoys meals out, date nights outside of our living rooms, and is generally more relaxed about spending money than I am.
I was really worried about coming off as cheap or a killjoy with my frugal ways when we began dating. I had to learn to share my frugal side with my partner.
