  • I'd probably say €20-50 dollars which is about £15-40. Assuming I don't know the person very well, I wouldn't want to spend much more than that because I don't know if the relationship is going anywhere. It might be different if I was already friends with the person and we were doing something we both would enjoy in order to see if there was any romantic chemistry between us.

  • What's interesting is females would suggests eating home made food, pretty sure if a guy suggests that eyes woukd role with potential for being suggested. I'm not sure how much I dont set a limit. It's mainly let's fo have some fun. But I'm not going to go out of my way to go to expensive places. For a 1st date. The chick could just be using you for a meal. Radio station had a female worker fo pn how she dated dudes back to back for free meals and gifts. She will schedule sever dudes same day. And do this several days a week.

    • I'd much rather have her over to my place and cook for her than to go out to eat.

    • Chinese friend of mine in Beijing tells me that some serial dater girls there will order especially expensive meal items because they know the guy won't complain in order to save face and will simply pay the bill.

    • Very true. That also happens in America.

  • First date/meeting for coffee or something until you know there’s interest for a second date.
    I don’t like fussy/high maintenance dates (once in a while is fun), seems like too much pressure.
    I prefer an adventure type date where maybe all you spend is money for gas!

    • I'd assume they're answering under $0. Do they pay their way to the date?

  • 0 dollars. First dates are not worth paying for. We can go someplace that doesn’t require money.

  • My first date might be coffee or a walk... so, not counting the cost of looking good - IF I buy something special, I may not count that as spending on the date, technically.

    I think if she wanted some expensive, fancy dinner, then I’d have to decline. To me, that would reek of her just being after free food. That’s reserved for down the line, maybe. Otherwise, even a movie is out until date three or so.

  • $300.00 for dinner at a nice restaurant, like Ruth's Chris, and more for whatever movie tickets cost these days, which I don't go to, because I don't like new movies.

    • I was never cheap, even as a kid. Always took a girl to our Country Club, or an expensive restaurant, then a movie or show. Still do it with my wife. That's what good restaurants cost these days, and we don't drink.

  • All of these people saying $50 are going to some pretty cheap places.
    I've been on dates where it would actually be cheaper if I just hired a high class hooker.

  • Zero dollars; excellent way to rule out the gold diggers and freeloaders early. If she doesn't want to spend time with you without spending your money, she doesn't really want to spend time with you at all. She's more about what you have to give her than who and what you are as a person.

  • Well if the girl is hot, I go to a middle class restaurant (80-100dollars) just to make her mind "I am not so special"
    But if the girl is average we go to a high ranked restaurant (over 150dollars) than she can think "I have some chances here"

    I know, it is special but it's my way to do it.

  • Probably not a lot. I don't know this woman very well that I'd be on a date with. If she turns out to not be who I thought she would be (not a good match), then I don't want to waste my money on such a person. I'd rather use money for someone that I find special and that is a good match.

  • You spend whatever you want, remember that you want a good evening out too. The money doesn't matter, if you have a good time then she'll have a good time too.
    Make a good impression, she may end up to be the live of your life and therefore deserves to be treated correctly

  • I wouldn’t mind paying for everything, though, it might be more modern to split all the payments equally. I’d say, over $150 would be the option I’d choose only because I don’t have a specific cap.

  • First date! Hmm lunch or dinner with an activity.

    My last first date was lunch and beach event with was nice. Over 50. Though lunch cost 25 and event 10 but gas and parking too.

    Another first date we split the cost and we went to lunch. Laze-tag which is fun for any age. Walk in park. And grocery shopping for simple dinner. Which we booth cook at my home.

    Cheapest date like price of Starbucks. Those don’t always do well.

    For good date. Historic place, parks, cooking class, something fun follow by either lunch and or dinner to talk. Heck even a 5k jogging event. Great. Can start together don’t matter who finished first. Depending on relationship how booth met.

      As much as you want to or can afford.
      All depends if you've got time to get in her pants that night or if you want to do it som other time.

  • First date is typically Starbucks and a BJ. About $12.
