Impossible? No. Unlikely? Yes. You'd have to find someone who is understanding and willing to go on the cheap for dates. Good luck with that.

It's entirely possible. However, at times you have to be very creative with how to stretch what little money you have. It helps to be positive as well.

Oh I am positive alright.

Still as a dude, you have that weight on your shoulders that YOU must be the MAN and pay for everything.

I'm learning how to cook for what it's worth.

I think this was discussed earlier in this thread, but cooking skills are a major plus. Oftentimes, cooking for your date can be a lot cheaper and more entertaining. It worked quite well for me.

Another question If you found that your partner was (not exactly cheating) flirting with a girl behind your back, you asked about her but he didn't tell, you confronted him, you expected him to be honest/straightforward with you so you could forgive him and move on. But unexpectedly, he's denying it at all costs. You lost to him verbally Would you just cut him loose?

PS: Let's say you had solid evidence.

Are you sure he was doing these things? Positively, without a doubt?

I can't speak from a girl's perspective, but I can say that if I found my gf flirting with another guy and was completely certain about it, but she would do whatever it takes to deny it, I would be quite suspicious. Why can't she tell me? I saw her, and we're in a relationship so ideally we should be open with each other about these things. I wouldn't hide anything from her about people I see and meet up with. I would find it unfair. I would cut contact with her until she comes out with it. If she still can't, then I would just forgot about her entirely and move on.

It it happened once, I'd let it slide. If this kept going on for quite some time, I'd call him a liar, he'd call me insane, and we wouldn't talk to each other again..

Absolutely not. Right now it's his word against yours, and until you have solid evidence that he's doing that sort of thing (I assume "found out" means "a friend told me"; if it was texts or something, he wouldn't be able to deny it), you're just being the worst sort of girlfriend: the type who stays angry at someone for something he didn't do.

Think about it. If you break up with him, you're essentially saying, "I don't trust you enough to be honest with me, and I'd rather go with my gut than believe what you're saying." If he says he wasn't flirting, accept that he wasn't flirting and move on. Rather than looking for opportunities to convict your boyfriend, you should trust that he'll stay faithful until you're absolutely positive otherwise.

As a side note, why do so many people think fervent denial equates to absolute guilt? Isn't it possible someone is denying something because, I don't know, they didn't do it?

Absolutely not, 'flirting' can be a metter of opinion. Some people are naturally very flirty and may be seen as flirting with someone when they aren't. Flirting by itself isn't so bad, it would be an overreaction to break up over it unless there is a lot more to the story.

"Gamer," I myself don't believe (let alone rely on ) words from other people. Let's say you had solid evidence, and he still found ways to deny it.

You know it's REALLY HARD to give advice on this cause we'd have to see it. Everyone has their own picture and everyone has a different gague if you will. Easy there.

(to lighten the mood)
also I have to ask is love really like this?

A question for men :

Your best female friend VS. your girlfriend

Which is more important? Would you satisfy your girlfriend's needs first or your best friend's?

Really depends on the context. Girlfriend is pretty much a bestie with added bonuses. Most scenarios, I would prioritize my girlfriend over the female bestie. Very tricky though, speaking in a general sense. Like if both had a really bad day, girlfriend does come first. If I could get away with it though, I would set both of them up to talk about it while I go do my thing.
