I started dating a new guy. He text me and ask me if I want to go running (that's awesome that he wants to stay in shape BUT that and going to parks is all he ever wants to do. Doesn't invite me anywhere else. So "cheap" comes to mind.) I don't want to go running or walking around my house all the time so I lied and said I already ran, let's go to downtown instead. Then he replies "I put my check in the bank today but it won't clear till Thursday or Friday. Do you think you can treat me today if we do something downtown? The good thing is that I have a one day bus card at the house so traveling won't be an issue", I was upset. He only paid for one dinner and he wants me to pay for him if we do something downtown, HELL NO! I didn't reply, After an hour he text me back "I don't think I can go downtown, I am going to be busy but can I stop and see you for a bit? I hope your not upset that I can't hang out with" I texted him back "I understand that you are busy". He then ask me again" Can I come see you later?" First of all what kind of man has the balls to ask a woman to pay for him?!?!?That's not having any balls.Am I wrong to be upset? We just started dating,grrr, I don't think we are compatible. How do I let him go? I did like him A LOT, a whole A LOT actually but if the relationship starts like this I think it can only get worse. I am gonna be sad to let him go but I know men don't change. So I rather now then later. Am I making a big deal? I am not sure if I should break up with him but if I do how do I tell him? I do want to stay with him but my gut tells me that he's not for me. What do I reply to his text?

i definitely agree with you, that's just sad that he can't pay for you especially since you just started dating. It sounds like he might not have much money in general but STILL, I would be just as frustrated as you are lol. Maybe it might seem kindof pathetic, but I would consider breaking up if he keeps doing the same thing. :S2
