Is Cheap The New Sexy?

posted by DJ Taylor -

According to a surprising new survey from SlickDeals.net, a whole lot of people find being frugal to be sexy. 92 percent of respondents said they considered being frugal an attractive trait in a partner. 

In fact, a whopping 79 percent said it wouldn’t bother them if someone used a coupon on a first date. 

What do you think? Is being a small spender something you look for in a date/partner?
