Cheap Date Ideas
Evan Wecksell (Man on a budget) gives expert video advice on: What's a cheap date for the history buff?; What's a cheap date for someone who loves live theatre?; What's a cheap date for the music lover? and more...
What's a cheap date for the history buff?
If you want a cheap date and you're a history buff, the thing to do is just do some research on your home town. See when it was founded, even go there with your date and just have a picnic. Like, right on that spot. It's very nostalgic.
What's a cheap date for the music lover?
A really cheap date for the music buff is just making a song together with her , just writing something and then going down to the karaoke bar and then just giving it an whirl and having a good old time. Of course after anything you do on karaoke end with "I will survive."
What's a cheap date for the gamer?
A nice date for the gamer is just any kind of game like board games, card games, video games if she hopefully likes it and just kind of make a game out of the game.
What's a cheap date for the storyteller?
A cheap date for the storyteller is just going with her to a quiet area and then just picking up people and making up stories about them like “oh look at that women, let me see Boxers or briefs. But she is a woman I do not know. Boxers or briefs she has a bike helmet on. And oh lets see, oh look at that baby, is that baby need to be fed or changed?” Endless creativity when you are watching people at the park.
What's a cheap date for the good samaritan?
A cheap date for the good Samaritan depends a lot on volunteering. Just volunteering at a soup kitchen, or a humane society, volunteering at a race that's going on in the park. I always want to help older people, especially if you're with your date and you see a couple that's crossing the street a little slower than they should be. Just pick them up and carry them the rest of the way, because motorists get pretty impatient when that walk sign is about to go from green to red.
Should I ever let a girl pay on the first date?
Well if you ever want to let a girl pay on the first date you should probably think twice. It is not the best idea because if the girl is going to pay, you know that you are going to end up paying because she is going to be gossiping about that to all her friends. "He is a cheapskate," "oh no, he did not just stiff you with the bill." The only thing you can get away with is maybe if you have friends in common, to where it would almost be OK where you guys are almost going out as friends. So, you don't have to pay for everything. Only situational. You better pay.
Is it OK to ask a girl to go Dutch on a first date?
If you want to go Dutch on a date, you probably got to see how the date was planned. Because if she was doing the planning and she was making all the arrangements, then I think she would be OK to split it half and half. But if you are presenting her with this entire evening and then you are like” oh, by the way you pay half”. She is like “I never wanted to go to ---- and then a basketball game. Like I think that is really lame. I am not paying half of that. So bye”. You do not want to go Dutch on that situation.
If the first cheap date goes well, will she expect more on a second date?
The answer to that would be no, because you've already established that you are a cheap guy. You're a "Coupon Carl" or whoever. If you are the guy that's just showering her with gifts, she's going to expect nothing but that. "I don't even care about you I just want another necklace or jewelry." So you want to just create the feeling, and the routine, that, "what are we going to do on no budget this time?"
If I don't have a car, is it OK to ask her to drive?
There's kind of a transportation scale to dating. There's you driving, you driving with a borrowed car, then maybe even doing a bicycle because it could be a bicycle date. But then it kind of gets you down to maybe asking her to drive, because if you go below asking her to drive, then you get mom driving you, and then unicycle and that's a circus.
