Dating Can Be Cheap AND Awesome
Dating doesn’t have to be expensive, and during this economic climate you can still make magic happen even with the smallest of budgets!
We’ve put together an awesome list of 5 amazing dates, that won’t cost you a penny but will still leave that special someone feeling special.
Date 1: Find a Quirky Outdoor Market
Whether you find a cute art market or traders market, or whether you’d rather take a visit to a food market or farmers market, just taking a stroll around this kind of shopping experience is something different and fun for both of you.
The best thing about these kinds of markets too is that they often give out free samples – so you might even be able to fill up on lunch for free too!
Date 2: Visit a Local Tourist Attraction
If you live in a big city, take her to an art gallery or museum. In cities such as London and Manchester most major ones are free admission – so this is a great way in inject a bit of culture into a date for free.
If you’re not really the arty type – head in anyway and see who can sound the smartest as you look around.
Date 3: Take a Trip to Ikea
Every girl fell in love with the Ikea scene, so show some thought and add a little romance by doing the same.
A walk around Ikea is always fun and it’s such a quirky, cute memory to look back on too.
You could always treat yourselves to some Swedish meatballs halfway round too!
Date 4: Go on a Long Walk (or a Long Drive)
Just set off somewhere together with the intention of getting lost.
You can go anywhere, just set off.
Doing something spontaneous like this is so fun as you don’t know where you’ll end up or what you’ll see.
Maybe only one of you is allowed to look at the map?
Make it as fun and quirky as you can.
Date 5: Go Window Shopping
Head to the most expensive shop you can possibly find (Harrods, anyone?) and put on your poshest clothes and waltz in there pretending to have all the money in the world.
Sometimes it’s fun just to pretend and you can escape into another world just for a day.
End the date with a cheap McDonalds – just for the comedy value.
