Dating Tips To Save Money

Dating can be expensive. Between paying for a nice meal for two, new clothing, and other activities, it can easily add up to more than £100 per date. Most people simply can’t afford this, especially if they are trying to find the right person by dating more than one person. There are several ideas that will help you save quite a bit of money without making you look cheap.

Skip Dinner

Dinner has traditionally been the most popular date to take someone on. Unfortunately, this is also not cheap. You can skip dinner entirely though and still have a great time. Meeting up for coffee and desert at a local pastry shop will only run you around £10, and will still give you face to face time to get to know each other. If the weather permits, think about a picnic as a meal instead. A hand packed dinner under the stars is going to be seen as much more romantic than a restaurant, and it won’t cost you a ton of money to set up.

Stay In

If it isn’t your first date, staying in can be a great way to enjoy each others company without spending a lot of money. Preparing a home cooked meal is a gesture that is inexpensive and will be much more appreciated than a restaurant meal. Even a take away can be great, and cheap if you know where to look. Grab some board or card games and rent a few movies. This can be a great way to have fun without hurting your wallet.

Dating Terminology Explained – Deciphering Personal Ads

As technology advances, many more options open up for the dating world. Many people will try to pack as much information in to their profile as possible. If you don’t understand the terminology, you may be setting yourself up for an experience you’d rather not have. Here are a few of the more common terms, and what they mean.

Abundant Love – This is another way of saying they don’t want to be exclusive. A profile that uses this term is likely to be a swinger, or someone just interested in sex.

Casual Dating – The person who uses this term in their profile is likely looking for a few people to go out with on occasion. This can lead to something more serious later, but they aren’t looking for serious right now.

Friends with Benefits – This is a way of saying they want someone to hang out with, and have sex with, with no commitment or relationship.

May December Relationship – This refers to a couple with a large difference between their ages. Other terms have taken the place of this, but you may still run in to people who use this.

Cougar – An older woman looking for a younger man.

No Strings Attached – This is the same thing as friends with benefits.

Open Relationship - A relationship in which both people are able to have sex with others. This is common for profiles of swingers, or those who don’t want to get tied down with a single person.

Pansexual – This term is used to describe people who see beyond gender. Unlike bisexuals, they are attracted to men and women, as well as open to the possibility of transgendered people.

The Best Cars To Have On Your Date

While you may not be able to go out and purchase a car simply for dating purposes, you may be able to rent a car. There are some cars that just scream run, or bad date. Here are a few things to consider before picking up your date.

Best Car Choices

A simple, comfortable vehicle is all that’s required. Don’t get to showy with your vehicle, and avoid bringing the family van. A decent sedan, or small SUV is your best choice. Remember to have your car cleaned, and a detail is a nice touch. If all you have is the large mini-van or a super sporty car, consider renting a car for the evening instead.

It’s also vital that you make sure your car is reliable. Nothing is worse than being on a date and getting stranded because the car craps out. It’s not a bad idea to have a basic service done before any big date to avoid this. If you can’t do this, at least have reliable roadside assistance just in case.

What To Avoid

Some cars will scream ‘run away’ before you’ve even had a chance to put your best foot forward. Towncars are typically poor choices since they look like cabs. Cars that are designed for super high performance driving (think high end luxury sports cars) are difficult to get in and out of. You may make a bad impression if you show up in a gas guzzler and your date is an environmentalist. Also avoid showing up in a vehicle that looks like you are trying to show how wealthy you are. These all leave bad impressions, and you may not get a second date, if the date even gets in the car for the first one!
