Main Entry: skinflint Function: noun Etymology: Flint stones were used in olden times to start a fire.
The term skinflint derives from the idea that a miserly person would go to the extreme and “skin a flint” or use a flint till it’s as thin as skin Date: Circa 1700 1: one who is very reluctant to spend money 2: scrooge 3: pinchgut All of us are enthralled by this fundamental unit of modern capitalist society: money.
I had a very interesting Troubleshooting session with a guy from NYC today.
Jay is 35, boyishly handsome and a doctor(resident).
In today’s world dating can be done in a number of ways.
The couple can go for the traditional date where the man pays for the meal, and the show, or they can have a more modern approach and decide to go Dutch with each party paying for their own meal.
And they wouldn’t, because most are too concerned with their public image and getting voted Best Dating Advice Giver of 2012 for Popular Mechanics magazine. That means more money and better places/date ideas. Jay said that he sees plenty of women he finds attractive with guys below him in looks. As ugly as that sounds, that’s what it’s all about.
We decided to put together a 5 part series on which male personality types you may have already dated or are currently dating and what you can do to slowly change him for the better.
If it's like that now what will be when we're married?
Also the pre-nuptials that he wants is that I'd move into his house, and we'll split all expenses.
Whether you agree with me it of not, you cannot deny that money takes on a particularly pivotal role in the dating world.
I would imagine that every woman reading this has her own opinion about the role that money takes, (or should take) in male/female interactions.
