Not everyone who wants to date has deep pockets. Dating though,
should be about chatting, getting to know each other better and having a good
time. A little bit of imagination can lead to an unforgettable date and a
second, third and fourth date too. Here are ten ideas for budget dating that are
fun and interesting.
Beach – There is no doubt that the beach is romantic. Weather permitting an
evening at the beach with candles and a fire shows a romantic side. A day of
frolicking in the sea and playing Frisbee shows a youthful and fun side.
Picnic – It might be cliché but a picnic is a sure fire way to wow someone. Making
the effort to prepare your own food shows a little bit of dedication. You can
even take along a bottle of supermarket champagne at the fraction of a cost of
buying it in a restaurant.
Cinema – Going to the cinema can be reminiscent of teen dating days. Choosing an
early showing can mean discount on the tickets and time to chat about the film
Fairground – A theme park or fairground is a great way to spend a day out. Fast
rides get adrenalin pumping and the heart racing. Winning your date a teddy-bear
gets you brownie points.
Cook – Offer to cook a meal for your date at your house. Even if you have to get
a friend round to help or buy a takeaway and hide the cartons, the gesture will
not go unnoticed.
Skating – Hire some skates and take your date on a tour around your favourite
park. If you’re both as inexperienced at skating as each other it should be a
laugh holding each other up.
Sports - Being active can be a great way to keep conversations flowing. Try
choosing something that neither of you are very familiar with so you can learn
Zoo – A day out at the zoo is soothing and sometimes educational. Who can fail to
be amused when watching a monkey hang from a tree by its tail?
Museum – Show your date that you have a cultured side by familiarising yourself
with a local museum and then giving them a personal tour. It will make you look
Bus – This one sounds odd until you have actually tried it but taking a ride around
your city on the top deck of a bus can be so very revealing especially if your
date is used to driving a car.
No matter where you go for a date, the key to good dating is to keep the
conversation flowing and to hold the interest of your date. It is up to you to
watch for signs of flagging interest and suggest something new if your date
appears to be getting bored. If your budget date ideas are not good enough and
your date does not seem to be interested in you personally, scrap them and move
