Tired of doing the same things over and over again or your bank account can not withstand another visit to your favorite restaurant of a fashion boutique? Maybe this is the beginning of your relationship, or you are a teen, who does not have a lot of money? We have a solution to all of these problems. Read this article to discover some of the affordable date options you can choose from!
1. Have A Dinner At Home
You can either cook the meal for your partner yourself, or you can order take-out at your favorite restaurant or café. It will enable you to create a soft, warm, and intimate environment as well as will save you some money. Apart from it, there is a solid chance you won’t be able to finish all of the food, so your fridge will be stocked for a day or two afterwards. Light a couple of candles, have several glasses of wine, and listen to soothing music or watch your partner’s favorite movie. I guarantee your sweetheart will appreciate the gesture!
2. Cooking Or Baking
If you are not willing to either do all of the work yourself or grab take-out, consider having a cooking or baking date with your girlfriend or boyfriend! It can be extremely fun, and you’ll have a nice, home-cooked meal at the end of the night… and maybe a mess to clean up later, who knows?

3. A TV-Show Marathon
Your snacks are ready, your pizza has already arrived, and your cookies are almost done. The only thing you are missing is some entertainment! Relax and spend some quality time cuddling with your partner on a couch while marathoning Orange Is The New Black, From Dusk Till Dawn, Hemlock Grove, or The Walking Dead! Into the lighter stuff? Binge watch Gilmore Girls or a fun sitcom instead!
4. Go Skating
Want to do something outside your home? Grab your significant other, find a rink in your city, and go roller or ice skating! The prices range from $3-$8 per person depending on the place and city and are rather affordable pretty much for everyone regardless of their income. It is a fun activity, which will leave you with a bunch of happy memories and emotions. What can be better than being silly with someone you love?
5. Turn To Nature
Another option is to ditch the city and go somewhere, where nature is prevailing. It can be a beach, a forest, a meadow, or even a park in your town! Grab some snacks and comfortable clothing and go enjoy the serenity of the world around you. You can play some outdoor sports, learn some survival skills, animal watch, or look at the clouds and stars. This type of a date is not only incredibly inexpensive but also does not require you to visit one of the best hair salons in New York to get your hair done.
