Most people would love to have unlimited cash to go out and have fun with. Dating can cost a ton of money for a young man or woman these days.
In fact, the majority of people who actively date are young and just starting out in life.
This means that that budget is tight, but this doesn’t mean that the dates cannot be fun. There are lots of exciting options when it comes to budget-friendly dating.
Here are some great ideas that won’t cost you a ton of cash:
Coffee and a Walk
Local coffee shops are usually not that expensive and walking is generally free. This is a date idea that usually won’t cost more than $10. It also allows you to really see if you and your date are compatible.
If you can hold a conversation during your stroll this is a good thing. If you can’t, then you know that a second date may not be in your future. This is really a good way to get to know new people without too much time or money invested.
Take a Hike
If you and your date both love nature and being active, a hike can be the perfect activity. Each of you can bring some water and snacks to keep you alert, energized and hydrated as you make your way through the woods.
This gives you a chance to get to know your date and just chat and enjoy each others company. All this will cost is the gas to get from your home to the trail. Make sure that you know the trail or you might end up getting lost.
While showing off your survival skills may be impressive, getting lost is very stressful and is a quick way to ruin any date.
This will only cost you a few disposable cameras or nothing if you have a digital. You and your date can just wander around the city and take pictures. You can take pictures of each other, the sites and other interesting things.
This is a good way to get to know someone too. Pay attention to what your date is taking pictures of. It can tell you a lot about his or her personality.
Hit the Library
If you live in a major city, you surely have a huge library downtown somewhere. It can be fun going through stacks of books and seeing which interests you two have in common.
While you will not be reading novels, there are plenty of photography, architecture and poetry books that both of you can enjoy together.
Libraries are great fun for everyone and a bit laid back for those that are shy.
