I think the idea of splitting the cost of eating a meal out is a great idea, however I have run into a problem of the other person not wanting to go out at all because of the money. He would rather stay home and have popcorn or cereal instead of go out and split a resturant bill. I want to go out every now and then, but he insists on giving "alternatives" to eating at a resturant because he doesn't want to spend any money. I dont want to go out much, but I dont want to never go out. What would you suggest?
