Let's face it: Coming up with a creative yet affordable night out can be a challenge. But there are ways to put a charge in your dating life without putting a big charge on your credit card. If you're looking for entertaining, adventurous, or just plain fun dating ideas that won't break the bank, this refreshing guide is your ideal companion.
Steve Smith's Top 3 Cheap Dates:
3. Sidewalk Cafe Date — What sets this date apart from any ordinary lunch date is that this Cafe's location is truly on a sidewalk—outside your own residence! Surprise your date with a bistro for two complete with a cozy table, centerpiece, menu, food cart and your own server (ask a friend for help). This lunch is sure to win a rave review from your date.
2. Dazzling Dessert Date — Surprise your date with a post-dinner scavenger hunt that leads to a fun location for a creative dessert. Once your date has collected all the clues and found your hiding spot, impress your date with a wonderful gourmet dessert that you have prepared-- a sweet ending to a delightful evening!
1. Your Lucky Day Date — Add a little flair with this date! Prior to picking up your date go to each place that you will be taking him or her and pay in advance. As the evening unfolds, enjoy the surprised look on your date's face when, time after time, the two of you become the winner of "free" dinners, "free" movie passes, and so on. Have an employee greet you and your date with the "good news" such as "Congratulations, this is your lucky day! You have just won a free dinner."
Whether you are a young adult looking for new ideas for fun, a married couple looking for some spark, or someone new to the dating scene, inside is everything from energizing first dates to sizzling romantic dates-and each is a date to remember.

    Creative and Fun

    This was a great book -- very much in vein of the classic -- The Romantic's Guide by Michael Webb. Most of the ideas are creative and fun and don't depend upon your bank account. Definitely get The Romantic's Guide if you dont already own it.

    Great for all dating ages, single and married folks alike!

    This is a fun book. Great for all ages, whether you are single or married. There are a variety of ideas to help inject some creativity into your dating. Cheap Dates includes ideas that are whimsical, silly, romantic and adventurous. There are even ideas for simple and free dates and getting yourself 'out-of-the-doghouse' if need be. If you are into recreation, there are ideas for sports and leisure dates. And just in case you have a special occasion coming up, there is a section for splurge dates. I especially like the 'Spice it up' ideas throughout the book that offer creative ways to express your appreciation and affection. No matter your interests, you will find that after reading this book you can add new energy and sizzle to your dates. Be careful though, because it won't be long before you'll be coming up with your own creative ideas!
