    a boy was taking a girl into manhattan and he was taking the bridge instead of the tunnel. the girl turned to the boy and said “i heard there are onky two reasons that a guy would take the bridge, either because hes cheap or he doesnt like the girl”.

    the guy rolled down the window and threw a ten dollar bill out and said, “well i guess im not cheap”

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA the girl totally deserved that

    Okay, so they’re both silly and immature. Or, to paraphrase Yenta:

    The way she speaks and the way he acts, it’s a perfect match.

    If that is a true story- The guy is mean and has an EGO. She wasnt even calling him cheap she was just saying what she heard.

    I really hate it when ppl dont date seriously and do all kinds of shticky things so they can laugh about it and share good stories with ther friends. Can we grow up here??

    Doesn’t sound true to me. No frum guy would throw out ten bucks to prove a point. Probably a joke. I just heard a joke on the radio today after you get married.

    What is an example of mixed emotions? Your mother-in-law backing

    your brand new car off a cliff!

    HaHa!

    i dont find it funny…i wouldve never said that even if i was thinking it in my head :)) and if a guy would be immature like that i wouldve gotten outta the car rite there and walked home!…or gotten a cab or taken the subway home.

    i hate cheap guys too…but i would never say it to their face!!

    “She wasnt even calling him cheap she was just saying what she heard.”

    Whether true or not, the girl started it with her snide comment.

    Even if her comment is true, which I doubt because there are probably a million reasons why someone would take the bridge as opposed to the tunnel, it definitely isn’t nice. Somethings are best left unsaid!

    cs -“i hate cheap guys too…”

    I can understand hating someone who is really cheap – eg. has money, but won’t spend. Who says the guy in this case is cheap -maybe he can’t afford the exorbirant toll?

    Or is it your opinion that a guy is cheap if he doesn’t throw money after the girl, even if it’s not necessary, like in this case?

    @sd lol ;)))

    @health a guy is cheap if we go somewhere and he drives around for 45 minutes looking for parking on the side streets so he wont have to pay for parking.

    or going to a cafe and only getting a drink for $2 i mean seriously???

    cs – 45 minutes seems a bit lengthy. How about 10 -15 minutes, is this cheap?

    How much should one spend on a coke the first date or two?

    10 bucks?

    health…theres no number, being cheap is more like an attitude…if ur dating a girl and u cant spend money on her dont make it obvious u know… its nice when a guy spends money on a date.

    s2021 idk, but underground parking scares me when im wearing 5 inch heels…just saying.

    ya, walking in heels isnt fun but sometimes Id rather walk the 2 blocks then sit for half an hour (cant talk cuz then he cant concentrait on finding a spot) while he compulsively circles and circles and circles.. (Im getting car sick just thinking about it)

    health – i agree with you. I think it’s cheap not to buy a drink at all – but definitely do not have to spend a lot on a drink, and parking can add up (maybe they should think of a place where there are more parking spaces) – if a guy goes out tons, he could end up spending tons and tons of money on dating – and not everyone has that money.

    cshapiro – could be you need to marry a guy with money, but you should understand that not everyone can afford what you like on a date – maybe they’re not for you; but that doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with them at all!

    Heels and underground parking lots freak me out. A lot of them are downhill and I really don’t wanna be the girl who goes flying. But then again those grates all over the city are bad for heels too…

    girls here sound like they are complaining about boys who dont spend good money on a date.

    Girls here talk about wanting to only date a boy “in learning”

    well make up your mind girls – money or learning. You cant have everything.

    A. You people have no idea what drinks cost. If you go to a random hotel lobby in Manhattan, and order a diet sprite and a seltzer, your bill is about $10-15.

    B. There is absolutely no reason to spend $10 going back and forth in the Battery tunnel, when there are 2 free bridges 5 minutes away.

    C. Parking costs $30. Cut the guy some slack if he looks for parking for 5 minutes. (I once spent 5 minutes trying to fit into a spot, and then gave up. I was pushing both cars at the same time. I bet a few more minutes and I could have gotten it.)

    D. If a guy takes you for dinner, it is a mighty expensive date. The costs and dates add up fast. I once spent approximately $1500 dating one person, and that did not include any flights, but did include a bit of driving. (19 dates- average $78).

    Popa,

    When my husband was commuting from Brooklyn to NJ, we talked about bridge vs tunnel. It would have saved us a lot of money but at that time of day would have added on at least 45 minutes. His commute was already between 3-4 hours. He paid for the tunnel!

    One time we decided to take the bridge since there was no traffic. That was the time someone rear-ended us :-/ Sign from Hashem – take the tunnel.

    If I were the guy I would have made up some stuff about yichud issues with tunnels 🙂

    I don’t think it’s necessarily the lack of money being spent on the date that girls are complaining about. I think it’s more that the guys are very obviously looking to save the extra few pennies. I have no problem circling for parking but 45 minutes is rather excessvie. And if they don’t want to spend $10 on a drink (which I agree is a lot) then they should plan the date better and go somewhere other than a lounge.

    dunno: The only place cheaper than a lounge date is a starbucks date.

    How many starbucks you wanna go to?

    If there’s little to no traffic on the BQE, taking the bridge would only take an extra five or so minutes each way. Certainly not worth the $9 or whatever round-trip.

    a girl needed to use the bathroom on a date. when she was ready to flush, she did it with her foot because she didnt want to touch the flusher. and then her shoe fell in the toilet. she came hopping out to the guy and told him what happened. HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    #762284

    $9 each way. If someone wastes money on the tunnel, the girl ought to dump him for being a spend thrift.

    I once went on a date. About an hour and a half in, we realized we had dated before- for a month.

    Weird huh?

    cshapiro – Every Jewish girl is worth it, but can the guy actually afford it? When you’re single- whether a guy or gal and working, there is a lot of money for enjoying yourself. But once you have a family in today’s day and age, even with both parents working, with tuition costs, life can be very struggling. It’s allright to live it up now, but it’s better not to- because it’s not that easy to live on a budget if you aren’t used to living that way. Start now and it won’t be so difficult later on in life.

    Dating is not a time for budgeting.

    The guy that gets the girl is the one who romances her.

    Like they say: Drinks are an audition, Coffee is cheap, Lunch is an interview and Dinner is romance.

    No regrets with going all out.

    Does it discredit what I’m saying if I don’t?

    I believe in traditional male/female roles, especially while dating.

    If I offer to pay thats my decision, but a gentleman gets me every time.
