Simple tips to save time and money on dating
Summer is approaching. That means more singles are away from home and warming up in the Atlanta sun. Singles thrive during this peak dating season, but it can be very long and expensive to embrace all the dates you want to have. We are here to give you simple tips to save time, money and go out!
1. Save time
Meeting friends during off-peak hours, such as mid-morning for iced coffee and a walk along the waistline, frees up the nights to go out. Too often we are unintentional in our planning and end up with scheduling conflicts. If you’re proactive and make it a priority to schedule friends during off-peak hours, you’re more likely to be free to dine when you have a chance to meet someone new.
2. Save money
Let’s face it – dating is expensive, but acknowledging that is a trap! It’s like answering the question, “Does that make me look fat?” Just don’t do it! There’s definitely a time to be frugal, but that time isn’t when you have a first date. Like it or not, it leaves an impression. Instead, save money anywhere else this summer so you can get the most out of your dates.
- Maximize the happy hour. Many places in the city host happy hours: this is not only an opportunity to hang out with friends during peak hours, leaving peak audience time free for dates, but it’s also a great way to save money. From half-price drinks and snacks to bottomless wine glasses, happy hours are definitely a way to pinch pennies and still be away from home this summer without giving up the chance to date.
- Make free events. There are always free events around town during the summer, from open-air concerts and street markets to art festivals and shop windows. This is another way to go out with friends without immersing yourself in the dating budget.
- Enjoy a night. No need to go out all the time. Consider arranging a night of games at your place on the back deck and having everyone bring their own drinks. It’s fun and free!
3. Do both
While I wouldn’t recommend it for a first date, bringing someone you are interested in at a picnic is considered romantic and thoughtful. It is also one of the least expensive date ideas out there without being considered cheap. #winning Choose a nearby park with lots of good people and pack some of your favorite items.
