It is not necessary for dates to be extravagant and expensive. If you are running short, then go for something simple and inexpensive. There are loads of ways of doing that.
Instead of going to a costly restaurant, go for a free event that is taking place in your city. Both of you will have fun and you will not have to worry about the money either.
Before you make your plans, it is important that you go through the daily paper and find out what is happening around the town. Make a list of the local events and take your pick. But other than that you have other options as well.
Mother Nature is always at your service. You can go out and explore some of the natural sites near you. That will be quite the adventure for both of you. Some of the best places are the beach, the lake or if there is waterfall then that is even better.
But if these are too far for you, then you always have the park. You and your partner can have a wonderful picnic there. And if you are lucky, then there can be any kind of fun, even like kite flying or a carnival at the park, which you may enjoy.
Not a big fan of nature? Want to take your date somewhere artistic? The answer is the museum. They are filled with loads of interesting artifacts and the entry fees are minimal.
That is a great way to have fun and learn some really interesting things. This type of place will also help you to know your partner better and find out what their interests are.
You can either cook for your date or do the cooking together. Keep the menu simple. Light a candle and enjoy the dinner together.
So next time when you are low on cash, keep these ideas in mind. It is not that difficult to arrange an inexpensive date. All you have to do is keep your eyes open and see what is happening around.
