There is something to be said about simplicity. Really extravagant dates have their place but sometimes all you need is a really great chemistry and time. This is why I constantly tell my guy friends to find a balance in selecting things to do for women. Many women can appreciate a well-rounded guy. We don’t like “gimmicks” guy who needs flashy cars, sycophant hype men, or obnoxious gestures of romance. Those gestures that only prove you have a handy American Express card and little imagination to go with it.
When you only have personality and charm to present to your object of desire, will they still be just as smitten with you? It is an important question because few people behave the same way they did when they first met and pursued their mate. The thing that draws them in can’t or shouldn’t just be the money that is spent to impress them. Just like sex is not enough to sustain a good relationship, money won’t keep the happy around either.
Have you ever gone on a really romantic and simple date that was cheap and fun? I think it is always fun to do a “cheap date challenge” where you take turns planning and executing a low cost date for each other. You pick a small and reasonable amount of money that is the spending limit. You compete to come up with the most creative and cheap date for one another. It is win-win, obviously, but it could show your personality to one another. Try it, trust me. It is big fun and leads to really healthy competition and trash talking sessions. If you’re into that sort of thing.
What kind of cheap date idea would you come up with to win the cheap date challenge with a $30.00 limit?
