    Money is tight. I can't afford to take girls out all the time. What are some ideas of what I can do that doesn't cost a lot or just a little money. You can't even go mini-golfing for under 9 bucks a person anymore. Bowling is ridiculous. Movies, forget it, I don't even know what they are up to now. Then dinner, faawwwkk. By the nights end it ends up costing 50-60 bucks for a CHEAP date. If I end up with 2 dates a week that ends up being more than my dang car payment. After they are comfortable I will just make them dinner at home, but early on some girls are weird about going to a guys house for that.

    SUGGESTIONS PLEASE! Keep in mind it's winter time here and cold as fawk out.

    My wife and I go to Barnes and Noble and don't buy anything.

    You could also make them dinner and watch a movie at your place. Maybe have a few friends over so it isn't so intimidating.

    Board games are fun enough for a group of people.

    If it's for cheap and he wants nookie, Chloroform is your answer.

    Tell her you'll massage her tits with your ass, that always get's them hot n bothered. Or maybe just bothered. But hey! That's half the battle won right there my friend.


    Seriously though. Dinner/movie at your place. Even better. Dinner movie at her place, and you cook and clean up.

    Dinner and a movie at your place is about all the options I can think of. Get a variety of movies, maybe do the netflix thing to keep it cheap.

    I'm pretty lucky out here; With my college ID card I get dollar a game bowling on mondays, and $3.50 movies on thursday at the local cinema. keeps things cheap and lets us have some time to get out and unwind.

    You guys must be amateurs...

    You can almost always get nookie on cheap dates -- usually because you're at home in your natural element... :laugh:

    Of course, I've been out of the game for a good 6 years now...

    LOL! omg! maybe neck/back/shoulder on the first date, but not a lot of them like that at first bc they would rather get to know u before u start puttin yur hands on them right away

    thats not always the case. any first time dates i ever been on ive always agreed to pay half, if not the full bill at first. my bf now i actually took him out on our first ... well, actually it wasnt a date i guess, i dunno... i offered to pay for dinner. there are women out there that dont mind payin for their own way or at least half. i know most people think if thats the case at first then they are not interested, but it aint always true.

    why not take her wheelin? maybe be prepared for a small little picnic by a little fire somewhere on a trail u picked out that has enough of an area to keep warm. if she dont like it then she's too high maintanence and leave her ass there in the woods :laugh: plus if it turns out she likes wheelin and campin... she just might be a keeper ;) (the last time i got back together with my bf, we went mud ridin drunk and about halfway down the pipeline we stopped and i practically raped him... but i love mudridin and adrenaline rushes from it, so yeah...)

    another cheap date is maybe takin her for a walk in the park. that way u can get to know her a little better so u can find out if shes actually worth the 2nd date. and u can find out if shes a bitch or a pretty cool chick. :D

    if its windy round yur area u could always go buy a cheap ass kite and fly it in the park... i dunno... im just throwin stuff out there.

    if theres any local fights u can get tickets maybe fairly cheap. chicks that are into watchin violence are usually pretty freaky if u know what i mean ;) :D (it might not be cheap as u want it but like i said, violence can provoke violent/agressive sex pretty fast if there is liquor involved... i raped my bf while he was drivin back to the house :D) ...sorry bout the stories, im just tryin to help u out and let u know what kind of women are out there i guess... ill shut up if u want me too :)

    hopefully u will snag the low maintanence chicks like me and the ones that actually like goin 50/50 on everything. me and my bf are and always will be all about some 50/50

    u could always cook her some steak and ask for a bj :laugh:

    hope some of this kinda helps, if not oh well... at least i put my .02 n :D

    yea, too bad it's in the single digits and all the lakes are currently FROZEN :rolleyes:

    And why is it that women want to make as much money as the men, have the same "rights", but the men still have to spend all the money? Seems like the women are the cheap ones to me. I never even said anything about putting out, did I? And for what reason DOES a man have to spend money on a woman for her to put-out? Isn't it a mutal thing? Yea, that's right. Women put this stigma on "putting-out" like they are doing the guy the favor :rolleyes: Yea, ok. Women want it more than men, but don't want to be labeled a slut if they act like it.

    I agree. Any time they are at my house, it's really not that hard. Usually if they come over on the first or second date, a little kissing and next thing you know, her clothes are in a pile on the floor.

    The last girl I dated all I did was cook her dinner and we hung out around my house. It was nice and she didn't have to go out to have a good time.

    I decided to join one of them internet dating sites. Working construction makes it extremely difficult to find someone to date in this age. So I figured, what the hell. You can't just invite girls over on the first date because they wouldn't go for it without meeting you first. Also, if they turn out to be nuts I don't want them knowing where I live! Very rarely will they come over on the first date or second date after meeting you even. The ones that do always want one thing :mad: :D

    So, I have no problem cooking and watching a movie at my place. Although if someone suggests after just meeting, it gives the wrong impression imo. I always like to invite them around my area and then pull the whole "I have to stop home to feed the dog and let her out, do you mind?" And then the whole "You can stay in the car if you wish" to which they say, ohhhh, I wanna see your puppy....It practically falls into your lap then lol.

    I guess I am a little old fashioned in that I almost never touch a girl on the first date unless she makes it obvious that she wants it. If she wants it, I have no problem delivering though. I never pressure, I think that's creepy.
    Once in a while you will get girls that don't mind splitting the bill. Usually if I ask them out, I will pay though. Or....I will pay about 80% and have the girl get the rest.


    You also get girls that are amazed that you took their money too. All kinds of girls out there, quite amazing. The one I have been on one date already likes wheeling...too bad there's no where close around here to go wheeling. She also has a '70 chevelle and likes cars which is cool. I was thinking maybe going to the dog park since she has a dog as well. The kite idea is pretty cool for summertime, I will have to remember that. I find girls that make a good buck are usually less likely to pay. The ones that don't make as much can appreciate a dollar more than the girls with high paying jobs imo.

    Offroading with a packed lunch/dinner is fun. Making an elaborate dinner together then eating it on tv trays with a movie. I dunno...we have free shows/entertainment in Vegas due to tourism, so that helps.

    i was gonna say somethin bout a dog park, but i didnt know if either of u had one. thats awesome shes into older cars. i want a chevelle SS so dam bad!! keep us updated on yur cheap dates and how well things go and what methods u used... be sure and write things down just in case u get enough to write a book someday :laugh:

    hell ive always tried to pay at least half only bc i was raised that way. im overly independent and ill never change. dont get me wrong though, if someone else wants to pay for the bill and wont let me put in my half thats fine with me, but i do at least try and shove in the tip. that does show that they are willin to try and work with u.... and that says a lot i think (even though im a chick) :rolleyes:

    Where I live there are free art galleries, indoor museums & gardens. Do you have a local free papers like Phoenix that has a weekly calendar in it? The arts have lots of free events (at least in my area) & our weather is similiar. Sometimes its somebody having a feature show that is free with food. :p
