Fun & Cheap Ideas for Dates

Finding the Perfect Place

This is undoubtedly one of the most pressuring issues when it comes to dating. If you want to impress her, you will most definitely have to choose something that suits you both. However, there is also the money problem, because if you spend too much you will either find yourself stuck into debt at some point or simply will not have the necessary money for something you really needed to purchase.

A first suggestion for a good and cheap place at the same time would be to visit an exhibition of the art school. Getting cultural will provide both of you with the opportunity of discussing some issues about a not so common topic and also give you the sensation of being part of the same generation. And, on top of all, everything will be offered for free. What can you possibly want more?

The Amateur Solution

You will not have to pay to see an expensive play or a high budgeted movie that just premiered at the local theatre. Amateur theatre can always be a great alternative for both of you and make you enjoy your time probably even more. Starting from open-mic nights and continuing with poetry gatherings and other similar activities, this type of entertainment will always bring you benefits.

You can get the chance to meet people your age who might have some common passions with you and you will also have the opportunity to save some real money. Taking all these aspects into consideration there is no reason for not giving it a try. You will most definitely not regret it.

Special Occasions

When it comes to spending the Valentine’s Day together or any other similar special occasion, there are also some cheap alternatives that will enable you to make her feel as special as possible with an insignificant amount paid from your pocket.

One of the most important things you can do for this purpose is to invite her over for a romantic dinner. In this way, you will not only be able to stand out with your impressive cooking skill, but you will also enjoy yourselves more than you would in a public restaurant, because of the high level of intimacy. Not to mention about the fact that everything can be done with a minimal amount spent.

The Teenage Way

What can be more romantic than some precious moments spent near the ocean? Never hesitate to grab a cab and then spend some precious moments holding each other and watching the sea waves making the atmosphere. She will most definitely feel special in your presence and you will not need to spend a fortune.
