Find A Way To Date Without Going Broke


It does not seem to matter where you live, who you are, or what you do for a living, times are tight right now. With the economy at its lowest point in generations and many people losing their jobs, being able to go out for an expensive dinner and a movie just is not in most peoples budget right now.

You might be wondering if you are destined to be alone, at least until the recession is over, but even during tough times you can find a way to date without going broke. The great thing about right now is that everyone is tightening their belts and trying to save money, so you can get away with being cheaper when dating without looking like you are just a cheap person who is not capable of having fun.

Take a Walk Together. You do not have to go out to the movies or even go to dinner; you can take a walk through a local park together or hit some nature trails that you have wanted to check out. This will cost little or nothing, perhaps just a bottle of water or two and some snacks, but you will have a lot of fun. This is a great way to reconnect or learn more about each other as you will have plenty of time to talk and share.

Dine in. In the past if you were on a date you were usually having someone else prepare your food for you. Oddly enough, preparing food together is much more intimate than having someone do it for you. Why not talk about a meal that you both love and then attempt to make it together? This will bring you together in a new way and will have you laughing, sharing, and eating together.

Check out local events. Many times local events will cost little or nothing to attend and you can enjoy local flare, great crowds, art, food, and so much more. If you are not too worried about spending just a bit of money, you may want to get in on a wine tasting that will usually provide you with lunch and great wine, if you are both into this.

Rent a movie. Going to the movies can easily cost $50 to $100 but it does not have to. Instead of going to the movies, rent a movie at your local video store or even get one on pay per view through your cable provider. While it may seem like a lot to rent a movie for $4 from your cable company, it is a lot cheaper than going to the movies and as quickly as movies are released for rent these days, you will have a great selection to choose from!

Grab dessert or appetizers. Instead of going out for a meal, go out in between meals when either of you are likely to be as hungry and enjoy an appetizer and coffee together, or even grab dessert. This will allow you to dine out, but the bill will likely be 1/3 to as much, making dining out so much more affordable in these recession tough times.
