9 Budget Ways to Have Fun Dating in a Recession

By James Lawrie Subscribe to RSS | January 7th 2012 | Views:

Fed up with the depressing headlines on the Euro crisis and American budget balancing problems? Dating can be a great antidote to the negativity. The good news is credit crunch or no credit crunch you can have great dates on a budget. Remember safety is imperative so some of these suggestions are not suitable for first time meetings. Initial dates should always be in a safe and public place.

1) Nature is Free!

Parks can be some of the most romantic settings. Whether you just want to go for a stroll or feed the ducks in the lake, a public park can make the perfect environment. If it’s your first date it can also be a bit less intimidating as the range of activity means awkward silences while struggling for platitudes over the dinner table can be avoided.

2) Prepare a Picnic

We have all been to places where an ice-cream can cost more than a three course meal at home so why not go prepared? If you are spending the day with your date then sandwiches and snacks can be the perfect alternative to breaking your bank overdraft. Of course, if your date prefers fine dining and you prefer a ham roll picnic then maybe that’s already a pretty good sign you’re just not compatible.

3) Museums on a Rainy Day

Museums, art galleries and antique fairs can make the perfect budget date when rain clouds rule out outdoor pursuits. Besides, if you know that your prospective partner has a fascination for these activities then what better way to impress. These venues present stimulating conversational topics that can make a first date fun rather than fraught. If the sun peeps out then street markets and a guided tour around your local town can give you and your date a memorable day.

4) All the Fun of the Fair

Browse your local paper or search online for community festivals and fairs. Entrance fees are often free or of nominal cost. Laughter is the perfect way to get to know each other on a first date. Show your lighter side as you try to throw the hoops around the cuddly toys and win a prize for your date. If you are an adrenalin junkie then check your partner shares you love of being thrown upside down on an 80 mph helter-skelter ride before booking tickets!

5) Visit an Auction House

These can be very entertaining places although not ideal for a first meeting as conversation is restricted. Just watching the skill of the auctioneer at work and the array of fascinating objects up for sale is an ideal way to spend fun time with a prospective loved one. Just remember that the whole purpose is to keep in budget so try not to twitch too much when the 14th Century Ming vase comes up for sale!

6) Volunteer and Go Green

No, not green with envy we are talking green dating! Or if you are both environmentally minded then join together by participating in the countless green projects that need volunteers. Get to know each other and simultaneously save the planet. Dating doesn’t have to be selfish or expensive; relationships can prosper by joining together to give a helping hand to the less fortunate.

7) Date at Home

An evening in doesn’t have to be dull. Draw the curtains, get the popcorn in and watch that DVD you have both been longing to see in your very own movie house. Try some cooking together and check the veracity of the saying the key to a man’s (or woman’s) heart is through the stomach. If the sun is shining then why not prepare a barbeque in the garden?

8) Quiz Nights

Many pubs and clubs often have fun quiz nights where you can take your date along and impress with you knowledge of trivia. For the price of a drink and a small entry fee it’s a low cost way to have a fun-filled evening. This is not recommended if you are likely to answer ‘goosey goosey’ when quizzed on Gandhi’s first name!

9) The Best Dates in Life are Free

Yes it’s a variation of the old cliché but true nonetheless. A walk in an area of outstanding beauty can be a fitting environment to help make romance blossom. If you have chosen someone from an online dating site it’s quite likely they will have shared hobbies. Going biking, walking or rollerblading together can highlight your compatibility without costing the earth.
