There is a sizable difference between not spending money on something because you easily cannot afford it and not spending money on something because you do not want to, I respect people who are frugal because that is the way they chose to live their life! However, I recently had an experience where being frugal affected my own personal comfort. I started dating a guy a few months ago. Everything went really well in the start and we seemed to hit it off. I knew that he was frugal, but I did not realize the extent of his frugality until I stayed at his home. He invited me to stay over for the weekend for the first time! Naturally, I was glad to spend more time with my new guy. It happened to be a really hot weekend, but I figured we could go to the beach or go to a friend’s pool if it was too bad, but the worst case scenario is that the two of us could watch films inside in the comfort of the air conditioner. When I first stepped into his house, I observed that it felt really hot and stale. I did not feel the cool comfort of the air conditioner that I was hoping to feel. I let it go because I did not want to be rude. We ended up going to the beach so I figured he would turn the air conditioner on before we left so it would be nice and cool when the two of us got back. I was easily wrong. When we got back the air conditioner was still not on! I decided to ask our guy about it. He doesn’t use A/C because he wants to save money. I decided to leave.
