Good ideas for a cheap date

Dating can be pricey, but not every date you go on has to be. To find a date without spending hours upon hours in bars and wasting hundreds of dollars on drinks, try online dating. A long-term subscription to a high-quality dating site such as eharmony can sometimes cost as little as $20 a month, if you use the right coupons and free trial offers. For example, you can try eharmony for free at sites such as Onlinedatingtrials.com.

As for the dates themselves, it’s possible to have a great time without having it cost a ton of money. Here are some ideas you can use:

How does $3 for a movie sound as opposed to $10? The fact is that many towns have several second run theaters where you can watch recently released movies at a fraction of the cost. Some theaters are a bit run down, but there are also many that give you an experience that rivals what you can get at a new multiplex.

2. Go on a picnic.
If you enjoy the outdoors, picnics can be very romantic. Location is everything, so consult local city guides and other resources to find the ideal spot.

3. Play a sport.
Any sport, such as tennis, kayaking, or hiking, can be turned into a perfect date. Playing sports with your significant other can also give you insights into their character, such as whether they’re competitive or how they handle loss. You want the person you date to be a good sport.

4. Volunteer.
This is a great way to do something good for the community while also bonding with the person you’re interested in. And volunteering can often be quite fun as well, in addition to being a rewarding experience.

If you’re looking for a good dating site, I recommend eharmony, which I’ve talked about in other posts. Make sure you join for free first before paying for a subscription.
