My Ex Was A Cheapskate

When you care about someone and they’re cheap with you financially and emotionally, it'll do nothing but bring down your self-worth and self-esteem. We learned valuable lessons about equality in relationships and what NOT to put up with. Thanks to all the cheap pricks who made this site possible. We may not have gotten a lot from you, but what we did get is a good laugh. At your expense! Send your story to

Avid Diver Fails to Find Love in a Dumpster

My ex would never buy anything new. Actually, he wouldn't even buy anything used. It's not that he didn't make enough money, because he made plenty. He just didn't want to spend it. He was so cheap all of the furniture in his apartment was either mine or something he found. The worst of it was his couch. He had found by a dumpster and it was the crappiest couch ever. Well, he always had to sit in "his spot" on the couch and I had to sit on the other side. One day his side of the couch broke. What did he do? Took my side and made me sit in the broken spot! Ugh.

When I came to get my stuff a few months after we broke up, the couch was completely broken and he was sitting in a chair... that he found by the dumpster.

Thas rite! Bitch Magazine - Feminist Response to Pop Culture, one of the three pillars in the triumvirate of awesome women's magazines (BUST, VENUS and BITCH) published our article on Page 18 of their Summer 2005 issue. It's titled, 'The Seven Deadly Cliches of Sin City'.

We're not only outing cheapskates - we're outing Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller for perpetuating tired cliches about power and relationships between men and women.
