WOMEN, Dating on a Budget ( not for Singles Only), Larry James

In summer, the world is a college student’s proverbial oyster. You can go anywhere, see anything, and meet anyone. It probably helps that summer is oyster season, too. BBQ’ed oysters, YUMMM.

Food cravings aside, we created a guide summer romances, along with some interesting stats on meeting that special someone who will make your heart flutter. Keep these tips in mind to keep a new romance afloat, or it may fizzle (unless that’s what you were going for – which is OK, too).

Good luck in the love department!


There are many things you can do without even spending a penny, so don’t always assume you have to spend money on a date. Great date ideas include walks in the park, seaside, countryside or around your town won’t cost you a thing.

Tip 1
Always remember that for a date to be successful, you don’t have to spend a huge amount of money. It is all about spending quality time with someone.

Tip 2
Don’t try to impress your date by spending money you don’t have. Getting into debt is not the way to have a successful date.

Dating on a Budget Tip 3
There are plenty of ways to have a great date without breaking the bank.

Tip 4
You can make a date as costly or inexpensive as you like. You can choose to go out for lunch instead of dinner, which is often cheaper, or you can watch a film at home instead of going to the cinema.

Tip 5
You don’t have to go out to enjoy yourself. There is nothing wrong in having a date at home. It will be cheaper, plus you will be in the comfort of your own home.

Tip 6
A date doesn’t have to involve food. Eating out can be costly. You can opt for a coffee date or just a quiet drink, which is a great cheaper alternative to dinner or lunch.

Tip 7
You can feed the ducks, fly a kite, star gaze, watch birds or play board games.

Tip 8
If you are aware that your date can’t afford the dates you go on, try to suggest a cheaper alternative without embarrassing them.

Tip 9
Always remember the hidden costs. Entrance tickets, food, drinks, travel, and souvenirs all cost and can really add up.

Tip 10
Planning is a must. If you are on a tight budget, planning will always help you out. For example, if you know you will need food out, why not prepare a picnic and take drinks with you, which is a cheaper alternative to buying lunch out.
