Nothing much actually, it's just issues with cultural differences in term of who pay for what. Men takes care of all stuffs in my country should there be a date or outing. This seems a bit different here but nothing too serious. Cost-saving tips: Try home cooking twice a week, visit fruit markets for large shopping.

There are lots of abonnament deals available for Buses, trains etc. There are also international calling cards which can be used on private lines and in non-belgacom phones(usually blue). They can cut the cost of calls to home up to three times.

eat together to save costs. Try to find a bar where the prices aren`t that high, because in Brussels there are bars where you pay 1 euro (celtica, irish pub till midnight)for a beer and club where you pay 5 euro`s for a beer.
