10 Amazing Dates That Are Almost Free ...

Cook Together

Photo Credit: e.m.papers 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!

Have a 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!

Go to a Casino

Save up around $10 in change each, and go to a casino. You’ll have to dress the part, of course! Then play the slot machines. The adrenaline rush is fantastic, and there is no risk of going overboard, as you have limited change. They often serve free cocktails at casinos, and you can watch big-money games even if you aren’t participating. It’ll be a date to remember!

Enjoy Happy Hour

Even fresh steak can be relatively inexpensive and very tasty! Plus, cosying up on bar stools next to each other can be much more romantic then sitting across from one another.

Go Sledding

Buy or borrow some sleds, and wait for the snow. Then, go and sledding trip down your nearest hill! Make sure you dress appropriately (no one wants to be nursing an injury) and once you’ve finished, warm up together with a good film and some toasted S’mores. Utterly romantic!

Go Ice Skating

Research the cheapest dates and times to go, and rent your equipment, to keep costs down. Even if you really suck, he’ll feel sorry for you, and you’ll get the sympathy vote! It’s really great fun, and the memories will last you a lifetime. You could even enjoy an ice cream together afterwards, or something to warm you up!

Not only will you get to know each other, but you’ll have a great time, and drinks are usually reduced to encourage people to come along and join in. If you are feeling shy, you can usually rent a private room for quite cheap, and use your own machine. They have everything from old ballads to new rock, so you are certain to find the perfect duet...

Do It Backwards

Photo Credit: Thorsten (TK) Meet up in the morning, and go for breakfast together. Breakfast rates are usually much, much cheaper then evening meals! Then go for a walk around your local town or city, and hit the theatre for a reduced matinee performance. You’ll find everything is much cheaper if you do it away from the ‘usual’ time, and spending the day together is a fantastic way to bond. I love these ideas! I’ve even done some with my boyfriend recently...just because we are a couple doesn’t mean we don’t have great fun on these dates! And anything which is great fun and gives us more money to spend is brilliant, in my opinion. Have you got an idea for an almost-free date? I’d love to hear it! Top Photo Credit: witha™
