Living a frugal lifestyle but still want to treat your special someone to a wonderful evening? No problem! There are lots of cheap date options out there; it's a matter of making them happen! You may feel pressure to take your date somewhere that costs way more than you can afford, but just remember -- if they don't have the spunk to try out something different and be willing to live life frugally, well, you may not be able to get along anyway.
Cheap Dates are great for first dates, tenth dates, or I-can't-rememberth dates! Whether you've been married for years or are just starting to get to know your significant other, these inexpensive outing options can be great fun.
This time in Cheap Dates, we'll take a look at bike rides. Exercise, the great outdoors, and time spent with your significant other -- and it's free. How could this cheap date get any more awesome?
Of course, before you can go on bike rides together, you'll need to acquire bikes. You may already have one, in which case it will be perfectly suitable, but if you don't, you can either borrow one (if you just plan on making it a one-time date) or find one inexpensively at a garage sale. Your significant other will need one too, unless of course you've got a bicycle built for two!
Choose an easy path to start out (barring the possibility that you are both marathon bikers), so you can take your time, take it slow, and have some great conversations while you bike. It's not the easiest thing to chat while biking, but there are also lots of types of dates on which it's harder to hold a conversation, so just be careful that you're not carelessly running into things because you were distracted by something your date said.
Unless you plan to turn around eventually and head back for the house to finish off your date, set a destination. If you live near some great views, choose one as your stopping point; bring along a picnic or sack lunch so you can relax and enjoy it. Maybe you live near some interesting destination spots that are just too far to walk -- an aquarium, a museum, or a large park. Take this opportunity to get there without paying for gas!
