A research had shown that singletons spend over £3billion a year looking for love. This splits down to approx 37 million dates a year (collectively not per person) spending on average £47 per time.

Read the attached article its quite interesting!

So do you reckon you spend around £47 per date? If you are going double dutch I reckon it could be about right but if the gents paying then it would probably be more. Those that take your dates to maccy d's should be ashamed of yourselves and need not bother posting

Brits looking for love....

thoughts peoples?

It's cheaper to be married, well living together, because you share the bills!  I wonder how much singletons save in birthday and Christmas presents? Not to mention no anniversaries to mark.

yeah I do see the living together bit as being cheaper only reason why I would want to live with someone oh and the **** on tap

taking out the living together element. do you think taking your hubby/wife on dates or being romantic in general would come in cheaper than the dates at £47 a pop

Mmmmmm, let me see, yes it would be more expensive.

Theres the airflights, then the cost of chartering the yacht, then all the romatic dinners and wine and afters then the flight home.

I think there would be "dating" savings because people just don't do it as often.  Lets face it, at the start of a relationship people make more of an effort!   But I doubt it's MUCH of a saving, and if you're romantic at home it wouldn't be any less fun.

I'm all for cheap dates anyway. I don't have much spare cash and I like to **** my way, so I'd do budget dates for £20

I am with you.  95% of my dates have been under $20.  Many have been free less the cost of gas.

may I ask what you do on your dates

First time I met Andrea I dragged her to a kite flying exhibition (it was disappointing) and we had coffee and cakes twice.  The next time we went to a museum - two for the price of one! Sarnie and tea.
Coffee and a chat.
One vodka and orange (I'd be driving) and lemonades, and a chat.
A walk.
Sometimes a meal (probably £10 plus drinks)
Cinema's probably the most expensive, and not one for a first date - you can't talk.

One of my friend's best first dates was seal watching off the coast.

The main thing for me is that you do something that allows you to get to know each other.  Talking is free.

We would go hiking, biking, running, swimming, visit a museum, take in a free concert at in the park or one of the colleges, do volunteer work, go watch a local game.  There are lots of fun things to do.

see I wouldnt really do those things on a first date. maybe if it progressed. I do recall a **** date in leeds in one of the large parks. it was an ok date till he drove me home and kissed me that should have been a warning I still have the scars from the one and only time we had ****

I used to only meet for **** so the dates have been few and far between. the **** date was about the time I turned over my new leaf  and tried having proper dates about 4yrs ago ish. now I get neither as I am a prude

I agree I like to talk and get to know someone.  Some of the best dates I had were volunteering.  I had a date dog walking at a shelter and one putting a roof on a house.  They were free and the refreshments were provided.

You can walk my dogs for free any time you like, I'll even cook **** for ya...

back atcha

Andrea is a forum newbie (CraziAndrea), and a good friend.  You could come to Newcastle and meet her - she's only been here five minutes and she's arranging a do!

Canoodling is what you do after you've got to know someone - and yes, I still canoodle

I like the idea of volunteering.  I hadn't thought of that one.

I can barely walk myself at the moment

You could get one of those trolleys postmen use, and rest your bump on it.  Then your date could help push it!

No, I think I've said before that I feel it's sometimes churlish to refuse a gift/treat just to maintain your independence.  But if we're both on a similar income I'd rather do something I'm paying towards, or take turns paying.
