Courting with coupons

A survey by Coupon Cabin found that 26 percent of adults have used a coupon on a first date.

The question: Would you walk out on a date if the guy or woman used a coupon?

Here are two of the responses:

• "Using coupons on a date, and acceptance thereof, depends on your stage in life and dating," said Tiffany Davis of Hollywood. "When I was in college (in D.C.), most of us didn't have much money and we lived for coupons to restaurants. It was WHERE your date took you that mattered. A coupon date to Benihana or TGI Friday's was fine [but] to McDonald's, not so much. As an adult, though I would look sideways at coupons on a first date. I wouldn't walk out, but I'd be hesitant about a second date."

• Another reader had a different point of view: "Walk out on her for bringing a coupon? Quite the contrary, I would be impressed and enamored!" wrote Steve of Aventura.
