I've decided to actually try to get into the game of dating.
However, my lone experience with a date was a really awkward hike back in a little Alaskan village, and sit-coms ;)
Now I'm in town, on campus, single and ready to mingle :D
However, I don't drive just yet, and I'm not exactly drenched in cash at the moment.
Help a poor inexperienced kid out, any ideas?
Options I've got so far are:
Hiking: Free, but requires transportation, I can handle taking the bus, a prospective date may not have great transport. Is also an event that would likely require getting to know her first (who's going up a mountain with someone they don't know?)
Coffee on campus: Central area for both parties, but requires both money and is not extremely interesting or personal.
Movie: Requires transportation, is expensive with or without concessions, and is neither very interesting nor personal.

"who's going up a mountain with someone they don't know?"
Huh? Why not? Hiking doesn't set off the "oh shit serial rapistmurderer" alarm.
When my husband and I first met, we had exactly 14 hours together before we became a long distance relationship. At some point in there, we found a kids' playground together, and, well, played. On the playground. At like 2 in the morning. I almost got stuck in a plastic slide, because plastic slides are not made for adult women who are over six feet tall.
Kids' playgrounds are free.
Old buildings, churches and cathedrals are free. Sometimes they're full of scary ghosts and shit. From which you can offer her your manly protective services.
You could go to a thrift store, pick out ridiculous outfits for each other, and make each other try them on. No guilt if you don't buy, since it's all used clothing anyway.
You can also just walk around the streets and make fun of people.0

not driving is actually a good game changer from time to time, cause you can make the end of the walk vigorous to the point you give her a piggy back ride all the way home. walk to coffee, then entertainment, then hiking, hopefully she's drained at that point and you're still pulling strong, then carry her and talk and laugh the entire way home.1
