I thought they were just casually dating. I must have missed something.

I send leftovers with my husband for his lunches at work.

I'm not financially irresponsible. I can afford to eat a brand new meal every day, so that's what I do.
Ditto. It isn't that I throw the leftovers away. All of the food still gets eaten. It just doesn't get eaten by me. Hubby eats them. Nothing gets wasted and I don't have to eat food that I don't want. No one is harmed by our system and our life moves happily along

What would you have missed? When you are casually dating is when you decide whether you might be interested in pursuing anything further.

She is casually dating and starting to see that it wouldn't be a good relationship to pursue.

To me, casually dating does not necessarily mean considering a relationship. Sometimes you just go out with someone to have fun. I didn't get the impression that OP's daughter was considering pursuing a serious relationship with him; perhaps I'm wrong.

I am 40 and I do not eat leftovers (except Pizza). Not sure why.....I also don't eat meat, seafood or anything with Mayo or Mayo appearance (yogurt etc).

I don't recall ever eating leftovers and I have no plan to start. Again, I have no explanation as to why. I believe that I may have some texture issues however; not sure that this is related to the left overs (it is related to the mayo type looking stuff).

I have issues................

Don't worry I have a thing with leftovers too. I usually eat sausage penne, beef stew or some kind of pasta leftover but I won't eat anything else like pizza, fish plate or meat the next day. I will eat leftovers if family makes them but will not eat leftovers from other people. I usually cook enough food for there not to be leftovers.

I don't really eat leftover, but I also don't cook in a way that leaves them. There are a few excpetions, soup being one of them. But i just simply do not cook "too much" food, so there are no leftovers.

I end up throwing out a lot of leftovers because, quite frankly, I have no idea how long they are safe to eat when left in the refrigerator. Occasionally, I toss something I know we won't go back to right away in the freezer---but then I don't know how long it stays fresh there either.


So, we eat leftovers for lunch for a day or so---then I pitch it because I don't want to accidentally make my family sick with old food.

I admit I love leftovers and fix extra food so I can have plenty. Someone not liking leftovers isn't a deal breaker for me at all. My family doesn't like them as well as I do, so I look at it as a good thing. It means more for me!

Incorrect. Reheating brings it back to the proper temperature. Reheating TOO LONG brings it to the proper temperature AND THEN cooks it longer.
Cooking well is a skill. Reheating well is an easier skill, but a skill nonetheless.

That's it exactly. Lots of people here said that they don't eat leftovers; assuming you're an adult with a job, that's a choice. I don't particularly think it's a wise choice, but if you can afford not to eat all you buy, that's your decision. However, I suspect that if these same people suddenly lost their jobs (or if money were tight for some other reason), they'd change their ways in a hurry -- at least temporarily 'til the financial crunch was over. This guy doesn't seem to have that same "live within my means" mentality.

I'd agree -- if he'd actually followed through with the idea. Talk is cheap.

That didn't make me any less financially responsible than any of my classmates that worked during the school year. Heck, I was more responsible than they were because I knew that what I had in the bank had to last because I didn't have another check coming in a week or two.
Possible, but unlikely given the other details. If he's working like crazy in the summer to avoid working during the school year, then he didn't plan very well -- if he had, he probably wouldn't be running out of money. Also, in my experience, college students who actually work for their money (as opposed to borrowing and promising to pay it back sometime in the vague, distant future), tend to be more frugal. I'd suspect that a person who works 3-4 jobs every summer would choose to get a roommate and economize in other ways.

No, she should pay attention to these red flags because they caught HER EYE. They were of concern to HER. Another woman, one who isn't opposed to debt and who approaches money with the same attitude as the boyfriend, might find these things acceptable. The OP's daughter is concerned; that's reason enough for her to pay attention to what else he's doing.

If they were just going out to have fun together, she wouldn't have been concerned enough to consider whether his financial decisions mesh with hers. If SHE is concerned about his spending, she's at the point that she's considering whether she wants the relationship to become serious. She's 100% right to think carefully about whether they're compatible BEFORE that happens.

Juding amounts well is one of the hallmarks of a good cook. Experience tells you that you'll want the leftovers from a big pot of good soup . . . but no one will eat last night's shrimp. I know that when I was a young cook, I missed the mark on this front more than once! The issue in this case, however, is that he dismisses the whole concept out of hand.
