Let's talk about dating on a tight budget. Times are hard. Everybody is trying to save. Let's figure out a way that you can have a great time, a great date, without overspending, because you don't want to go above your means right now. Frankly guys, you're going to be paying for at least the first 3 or 4 dates. So if you don't have a budget to spend on it, really be smart about your choices. Instead of going for drinks, go for coffee. There's only so much you can spend on coffee and you shouldn't go to the high end places. Dunkin Doughnuts is fine.
I was just kidding. Don't go to Dunkin Doughnuts. Instead of dinner, go to lunch. Instead of drinks, go for coffee. There's ways to save there. If you're into going on those coupon saving places like Groupon or Living Social you can find really good deals on dates or restaurants and events and things like that where you can get access to the same level that you want to spend but at half the price. So it's really about getting creative and sticking within your budget so you feel comfortable but at the same time you are making her feel special. That's really all a date needs to be. You need to have fun. You need to connect. You need to make her feel like she is important.
