Cheap Date Ideas for Every Couple

My boyfriend and I are both college aged people who are poor and don't make a lot of money. He served two years in the Army. He's having a hard time adjusting to civilian life but he is about to re-enlist. I'm a nurse assistant and I am trying to save money for nursing school. So, neither of us really don't have a lot of money but here's our best ideas for reasonably cheap date nights. But at the end of the day, the cheapest date is just being with each other.

  • I would love to do the majority of these dates! They are all so fun and simple! Except hiking, fuck that.

    Now I just need to find an amazing woman to share it with... Oh wait, I'm going to be alone all my life, nevermind.

  • These are all excellent. Another I'd add would be to hang out on a local university campus. They're often well kept and the arcitecture is beautiful. I dunno I love the campus near my house xD

  • I find the majority of your ideas way more appealing then the traditional dinner and a movie idea. My first date with my current boyfriend he took me to see the ruins of an old church. He knew I was a history nerd and we went out to see it. It's been two years now and in my personal opinion he hasn't managed to top that one and it was completely free. The best dates I find are the creative ones that show they really know you.

  • Great suggestions all- with hiking being my favorite of the bunch. Especially enjoyed the cat "reading", though- great pic!

  • Uh, no. That might work for SOME women, others would be offended by all of those ideas. Alas, I am not speculating. I wish I were just talking out my ass, but I speak from experience.

    • Sad, and saddening, actually. So much beauty in the world that some women not only refuse to see but look down upon those who can appreciate it.

    • @HereIbe Then it would be a good test: if she doesn't want that she's not the one for you.

  • Meet over a coffee its the spending of time together not some elaborate occasion they are nice but its getting to know each other that is paramount...

  • Great ideas. 😄

    Also go to a golf driving range. It's quite fun relatively cheap and you can laugh at each other when you slice the ball. 😂

  • Great ideas. Dating doesn't have to be expensive steak dinner every time.

    Walking and hiking are one thing I like a lot.

    Sometimes just having a cup of coffee and talking is the best kind of date.

  • These are great ideas! You could also do picnics in the park or at a nice location. Group dates may work too, maybe one couple pays for the night out and arrange for that couple to pay. Find local activities or community center (YMCA); they're free on Fridays (where I live), take advantage of that to go play some sports together or swim together, work out together.

    Hang out at the mall.
