Cheap dates

What's the cheapest date you've been on? Yesterday, my friend was taken to McDonald's by a girl who bought a 9 nugget meal to share between the two of them.

Re: Cheap dates

Shouldn't the guy be choosing the date and paying the bill anyway?

Yes. However, this was the fourth date and so the girl offered to take him out since he had paid for the first three dates.

Re: Cheap dates

By the fourth date, food shouldn't play such an important role anymore.

Well, if it were me, chicken nuggets would be a bonus since I am a junk food fan.

Re: Cheap dates

The cheapest dates can be bought in Turkish or Lebanese shops in Kreis 4.

Re: Cheap dates

I was on a cheap date once,
we went to club (he knew the owners so no covercharge) , he bought 1 drink, the entire, 4 hours, I bought 3.
The he suggested we grab a bite to est and watch the sunrise (over the Indian ocean) Get to Steers, (south africa's version of burger king) and he says that he is out of cash.

the best bit is that, I recently learned that he won 1.6million Rands playing poker.........life is full of surprises!

Exactly, I was invited for beans on toast recently, I just had the toast as I am not a fan of beans.

Re: Cheap dates

This happened when I was a bit younger: My ex-boyfriend prepared a food basket and then invited me for a picnic.

Re: Cheap dates

Cheap or expensive as an assessment of a date can really only be assessed in terms of ROI.

Maybe chicken nugget girl was testing her date to see if he remained keen on her while being semi-starved of chicken nuggets.

Maybe she was showing her extreme attraction to him by spending the last CHF 20 she had to get through the month on food for sharing with him.

Maybe she's addicted to chicken nuggets but on a diet.

Geez, maybe I should offer a date analysis consultancy service?

That is definitely the sweetest date I've heard of in a very long time.
I'd say sharing chicken nuggets on park bench without a cent but with heart, is a far more interesting date than being wined n' dined and appropriately impressed, but oh so superficially.

Used to have to travel, and I'd spend late nights jet-lagged, working in my room in these amazing hotels all over the world. I can distinctly remember thinking: I'd give it all up in heart beat for a no-star hotel with true companionship.

Good for the girlie, she might have offered what she had.
What has more value ? to offer what you can afford easily or something that costs you personally ?

Re: Cheap dates

My husband and I didn't date in the traditional sense. We started off as friends, so most of our 'dates' consisted of us going dutch on beers and $10 dollars steaks once a week or so.

Our date nights are much more expensive now

Re: Cheap dates

Cheapest dates I've ever had were taking my dates for motorcycle rides.
