Dating on a budget

Going on dates doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Dates provide for a fun setting where 2 people can get to know each other and enjoy the company of one another.  One fun date idea is having a picnic in your local park/beach. Going to these places is typically free and you can spend as much or as little as you want on what you decide to bring. The scenery and atmosphere is free and it’s a great place to enjoy company on a nice day. Another fun inexpensive idea is walking around a city and window shopping or exploring the area. This also doesn’t cost money and allows for you to enjoy your surroundings as well as the company you are in. There are also plenty of free events in your local neighborhood that can be tons of fun with you’re with the right person.

It’s a common misconception that dating is expensive and while it certainly can be, it doesn’t have to be. Having fun with your partner is important.  It’s important to take time to do special things with each other whether they cost money or don’t cost a penny. It is always a positive to get out of your regular routine and have fun in a new setting and the cost is dependent on your own ideas.
