50 Fun, Cheap Dates (That Aren’t Netflix)

  • 0

40. Go tubing down a lazy river in the summer.

41. Go to bingo night somewhere. You’ll make tons of weird friends. Bingo people are a lot feistier and more interesting than you’d imagine.

42. Strip chess.

43. Internet comedy: spend a cozy night in watching funny YouTube videos and laughing your asses off. Here’s a good place to start.

44. Google how to give a great massage and take turns perfecting your techniques.

45. Go through each others phones or computers and share pictures of memorable trips or events from your life. Tell stories about what is important to you.

46. Take up tennis — it’s free after you both have racquets and you get to spend time outside together.

47. Indulge in a seasonal activity: pumpkin carving, making hot chocolate from scratch, grilling outside, etc.

48. Wait for a night that has nice weather and go somewhere where you can see the city lights/skyline and just chill out. This could be from a scenic overlook in your car or just heading up to the roof of your apartment building.

49. Buy a few different cheeses, some grapes, and some three-buck Chuck and have a mini wine and cheese party at home, just the two of you.

50. Go on a tour of a local brewery or winery. Not only are they free and interesting, but usually you end the tour with a bunch of free samples.

I asked women to tell the story behind one of their Instagram photos 📸

“This is me on the roof of my building forcing myself to laugh. Every time I make my best friend take photos of me I remember that I’ve been single for 5 years and don’t have anyone to be in the photo with me. I’m just alone. My hair looks good though.”

This is the reality of Instagram...

Poetry that will change you

This is for the women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea. This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls. The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts. This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it. This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence. The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times. This — is for you.

“When Janne has a new poem written, I shut my life down to do nothing but read it, and then when I turn my life back on, everything is better.” — James Altucher

    A good list of things to do when you’re on a budget & just starting to date someone. Once the relationship gets more serious, you can always go on more expensive dates and still do some of these little things from time to time to create a balance. LOVE IT! (: I love lists of things and this is definitely another one of those even though I did not create this. I hope this help others or you on your future endeavors to have fun & explore in different arenas of life.
