With a little creativity, even if you’re broke, you can still enjoy some really fun dates without spending a lot of money.
thing, I quickly realized that while dating may be kind to my ego (i.e., it’s always fun when someone try to impress you, is it not? While singles like to complain that it sucks to be them because their hearts are feeling empty, let me tell you, one major benefit of remaining single, is it keeps your wallet full. For one, my wardrobe needed a little bit of an upgrade in order to “dress to impress.” Two, my hair was in desperate need of professional attention. While guys tend to say they don’t care or notice that kind of stuff, personally, I needed a mini-makeover to give my confidence a little boost. I’m honestly too Type-A to wait around for a guy to get his stuff together.
So, when it comes to paying for dates, I don’t go into them expecting a guy to pay.
To avoid possible conflict, discuss your relationship expectations with your mate.
But coffee, dinner dates, and drinks here and there can definitely add up. When that lovely credit card bill came in the mail, I found out that I ended up spending more in a month of dating than when I was single and partaking in the whole Netflix and chill thing by myself.
So, how does one single twenty-something navigate the dating scene without going broke?
Perhaps they’ve formed a relationship for the wrong reasons.
But even when the motives are right, a relationship still might not have that “spark” that impels toward marriage.
