This guy asked me out on a date and I wanna go with him but the problem is I only have $20, the place he wants to go kinda costs quiet a bit between $50-$100 what should I do? He wants to go to a laser tag game and then dinner, should I just say "is it okay if we go when I get a job" or what should I say?
First, if this is a first date, and the guy has asked you out, he should pay. Not because he is a guy or some other sexism BS, but because he did the asking out and should assume financial responsibility for the date. The same would be true if you had been the one to have asked him out. Second, is he asking you to pay your way or you volunteered to pay your half, which is cool, for the reason you're worried about the money? Either way, be honest. "Look guy, I would really love to go, but I cannot afford at this time to pay my way or for both of us. Do you mind if we go somewhere less expensive for our date." Any civilized human being would still want to go on the date and would offer a counter solution if money is a problem. Good luck and I hope you have fun.
Tell him that you have a cash flow problem and see what he says. If he's like me, he'll offer to pay or offer an alternative date idea! There's no reason to hold someone's financial situation against them unless they start trying to nickel and dime a person on a regular basis.
Inform him that you don't have the money but still want to go with him. Tell him you want to wait for when you have the money unless he wants to pay for you. Make it sound like you'd almost prefer to pay but are open to letting him if he wants.
It depends on what your comfort level is like with him. Do you feel far enough with your connection together to actually be transparent and honest by simply letting him know that you can't afford to go on a date like that right now? If so, then just be honest and straightforward with him. If not then make up an excuse, cancel the date, and arrange a cheaper date that suits your budget right now.
I think you can let him know what your budget is, and then you guys can decide whether to go someplace else (in case he can't afford his plan for both of you) or maybe he'll offer to pay. I think it's always good to be honest.
Normally the men take it upon themselves to provide for the woman on a date , covering the cost for transport , drinks and dinner. However if you guys agreed to split the cost and you dont have cash, you could reschedule or suggest a different place
