[Vogue] In a story that many women will find familiar, Kaley Cuoco, one of the stars of the long-running sitcom The Big Bang Theory, once met a great guy. It was love at first sight, at least for a little while.
He was hot. (A jawline that could carve stone!) He was funny. (His jokes cracked everyone up.) He was famous. (Like, really famous.) He was just an all-around stellar dude. It was all so perfect that Cuoco thought she could see her future with him, including their little babies and those growing-old-together parts. Everything was falling into place . . . until the check arrived after their first dinner date. It was then that she discovered his dirty little secret: He was cheap.
So exactly how does one get over a dating a stingy tipper? Can the subject be broached? According to Cuoco, dealing with the situation successfully has to do with devising post-dinner gratuity tactics. Or sometimes, it’s simply better not to go out. But would that be sustainable for the rest of our lives? In other words: Is it possible to truly love someone 100 percent if they are only leaving 8 percent on the check? And who, exactly, was the superstar guy? Here, in the latest episode of Sad Hot Girls, watch Cuoco recall her cringeworthy experience with the cheap boyfriend.
