In spite of all the fun, excitement and butterflies that dating can bring, the reality is that going on dates can be expensive. This is especially true when you want to impress someone special by doing something a bit different.
But without your own private yacht or helicopter to hand, the costs can soon mount up. When you’re ready to meet that special someone offline, don’t let a lighter wallet hold you back. To help you make sparks fly, here’s a few date ideas that won’t break the bank…
Find your nearest bike rental. Work out the most scenic route and then ride off into the sunset together. An active date means less room for awkward silences and renting a couple of bikes for an hour or two should leave you with enough change in your pocket for some post-ride refreshments.
Head to a comedy night
See what’s on in your local area in the way of open mic and amateur stand-up comedy nights. Entry is often free as long as you buy a drink and while the acts may not be fantastic, it’ll certainly give you both something to laugh about afterwards.
Get free tasters at a food market
Head to a swanky food market or your local farmers’ market and see how many free tasters you can swindle together. With stalls full of delicious fresh produce, you’d be wise to take a small amount of cash to buy the one thing you taste and then simply can’t leave without.
Explore a museum
Museums and art galleries often have free entry days and can make a great first date, particularly if you’re nervous about finding enough to talk about. Looking around exhibits together will give you plenty of talking points and you might even learn a thing or two!
Watch your local team
Whether you’re into football, ice hockey or baseball, forget the big league games and show some support for your local team! Tickets will be available at a fraction of the price, meaning you can still score points by getting the beers in. Winner!
Hire a rowing boat
If it’s romance you’re after, you can’t go wrong with this classic. Take a small picnic on board and enjoy getting to know one another as you drift round the lake and take in the surroundings. You’ll probably have a good laugh at each other’s feeble attempts at rowing the thing too!
With these money saving date ideas, there really is no excuse not to get yourself out there!
Happy (cheaper) dating!
