First date ideas for singles on a budgetPosted on: April 26, 2013 13:38:30
Dating for UK singles can end up being a costly affair. Before finding your prince or princess, you sometimes have to kiss a lot of frogs - or at least go out for a meal with them - and that can all soon add up.
However, going out on a date shouldn't mean you need to re-mortgage your house to be able to afford finding the one.
Head somewhere free
Now the weather is finally beginning to pick up, there is no better time to head outdoors for your first date. A trip to the local park or even beach can not only be a great place to get to know one another better, it is also free.
Head online and search on your local tourist board website to see if there are any free events going on. Spring and summer is a prime time for outdoor events from summer fetes to food markets.
If the weather isn't working in your favour, then why not head to a free museum or gallery?
Grabbing a bargain is always a good thing, particularly in this economic climate. Before deciding on a location to meet, see if there are any discounts or vouchers you can use to save a bit of cash. You never know, if things go well, you can put that money towards date number two.
A recent survey by TopCashback.co.uk found that as many as nine out of ten Brits wouldn't be offended if their date paid for a meal with vouchers.
Natasha-Rachel Smith from the website said taking advantage of offers "makes good financial sense".
"There is absolutely no shame in 'discount dating' in order to maximise the cash and 'share the love'," she added.
Keep things low-key
Many singletons wrongly believe you need to go all out on a first date in order to impress. In fact, keeping things short and sweet, and choosing somewhere more informal is often a better idea. Instead of booking a pricey restaurant, why not suggest going for a coffee, cake, or ice cream?
