When it comes to cheap dates, well, there’s no such thing as a cheap date. If you’re not Mr. Moneybags, but you still want to take a girl you like out for a good time, there are plenty of ideas you can come up with that would make for a memorable experience.

Going to a local park to feed the ducks, meeting for a cup of coffee or taking a walk on the beach are all great ways to impress a girl without breaking the bank. If you consider these cheap dates, you need to rethink your dating philosophy.

You want a woman who likes you for you, not for how much money you’ll spend to get to know her.

Dates shouldn’t be about proving how much money you have or how extravagant you can be. They should only be about two people getting to know one another and having a good time together.

Having fun is free.Keep that in mind when you get to planning dates and telling yourself you’re cheap.

Flying a kite, having a picnic, going for a walk along a riverbank, even visiting a local historical site…..these are great activities that make for a cost effective, but memorable, experience.
