Meeting someone for the first time can be difficult but even more so if you are on a budget. So below I have started a date series to help you out. This time I am concentrating on budget-friendly options when it comes to dating and ways to have fun when money is tight.
What’s happening in your local area
Check out what is going on in your local church hall or if you live near TV studios, find out if they are recording a show. Indeed some towns also offer free walking tours, so why not give it a go and see what you can do for free in your own back yard!
Of course you will be gazing in to their eyes but grab a blanket, a picnic basket with a bottle of wine and head out to the countryside and look up at the stars! You can now get apps on your phone to tell you about the constellations.
Cook a Meal Together
You don’t have to go out to a restaurant. Get out your favourite cook book and work together on creating your dream meal. You can see what you are both like in the kitchen too!
Go for a Walk
This certainly doesn’t cost any money and sometimes it is the simplier things that make a huge impact! Take a walk around your neighbourhood and see what you can find. I know when I did this I found some beautiful churches and we talked about the artchitecture of the buildings and the flowers growing. This is particularly good when the weather is on your side and it give you a chance to connect with nature and catch up on what you want out of life or how things are going at the moment.
Whatever you talk about getting fresh air is good for you and so is the exercise of walking! Oh and leave your phone behind if you can too! This is something you can do on a regular basis too, that down time when it is only the two of you.
Head out to the countryside and explore the lanes and go for a wonderful walk. It is often relaxing and you could stumble across some beautiful scenery.
Make some picnic goodies and find a romantic spot to chill out and chat until the sun goes down.
Find the Right Date
It can be daunting trying to find someone to either spend the rest of your life with. To help you out I have included links to several dating sites for local areas. This is intended as a list of where to start – most of these are like a springboard to hopefully give you an idea of where to start.
I hope that these date ideas have helped you and I hope that the dating sites broken down by area have helped too. Feel free to leave a comment and let us know your own date ideas or how you met your partner.
