Dating is expensive. I mean, the new clothes and endless drinks with friends analysing what happened all add up, and then you’ve got the cost of the date itself...and no one wants to appear stingy. There are some date ideas which don’t cost very much at all, though, and can be much better fun than the typical meal out or watching a film. Saving money and having fun?! Sign me up!
1. Cook Together

Eating together can be a great date, but a five star meal comes with a 5 star price tag. Unless, of course, you make it yourself! Find a recipe from a top restaurant (I love using copykat.com for this) and make it together. Not only is it great fun, but there is less pressure and it makes the meal much more exciting too. In short, it makes eating together funner, sexier and you’ll get to know each other better. Ace!
2. Have A Game Night

Dig out your favourite two player games, and some snacks, and have a private game night. I love Uno, which is great for breaking the ice, and games like Twister are fantastic fun. Throw your inhabitions out of the window and really have some fun! You’d be surprised how great a date this makes...If I was to recommend a date to anyone, it would be this. Me and my boyfriend have great photographs and memories!
3. Have A Latino Night

Latino themed nights are huge at the moment, but don’t feel you need to spend a fortune to enjoy one. Dress up in latin outfits, rent some latino music and make tacos together. All you need is tomatoes, avocados, meat, cheese and shells. You could even rent a ‘dancing latino’ video and try out some of the moves...or just enjoy the atmosphere and the food. Yummy!
