Dating on a Budget

Dating is an important and necessary ritual for singles of all ages. When two people are in a relationship, the value of dating lies in allowing them to get to know one another through various activities. Even after people have been seeing one another for some time, dating allows them to maintain closeness and enjoy free time together as a couple. Unfortunately, dating can be a highly expensive endeavor as well. During the process of getting to know one another, money is often spent on dinners, movies, and other types of dates. In efforts to impress, or in celebration of a special day, people also often spend additional money on gifts for one another. People even spend money on themselves so that they look, dress, and smell their best for the person they are seeing. Although dating is an important part of courtship, it doesn't have to be a strain on one's wallet or bank account. In fact, there are many different ways that people can spend time together and have fun with minimal money on hand. There are even things that couples can do that don't require any money at all.
