Dating In A Recession: Inexpensive Date Ideas

Thu, May 6, 2010


Just because financial times are tough, it does not mean you should not have fun! The silver lining about the economic downturn is that nearly everyone is either affected or knows someone who is, so a lot of pretences about money have gone out the window. This has freed people to date for the fun of it again, and explore some new experiences that they otherwise would not have. Here are some ideas for your next inexpensive date adventure that will not break the bank.

Rollerskating or Iceskating

These old fashioned classics will take you back in time in a romantic way, and will not come near the price of a nice dinner and a movie. It always helps loosen up early relationship nerves to use those bodies, and you can nosh on a nostalgic soda-fountain style meal at the snack bar.

Museums and Botanical Gardens

Take in some magnificent aesthetics together and enjoy the peacefulness that comes with such appreciation. Make sure to take your time going through, and use the date as time away from the fast paced world. It recharges you both and gives a good chance to get to know each other.

Vintage Thrift Store

Walk around together and uncover some hidden gems. If you really want to get daring, choose an outfit for each other without knowing what the other person got you and make a deal to wear it for the night. It often will not cost much but can certainly spice things up!

    I dig parks anytime. I preferred holding hands while walking at the park. Say it cheesy but I’m a hopeless romantic! 🙂
