    How much should you generally spend on first few dates?
    Not too look cheap, but not to look like your are trying to buy her?



    Lets walk if your salary is around 50k a year and you drive a nice car, how much should you spend on dinner?

    Date is making about 5k a year.

    i agree. not too expensive for two but a good distance from being considered an extra value meal.

    When's a good time to start going to places which are a little more high class?

    First date? Go for coffee or ice cream, you spend 10 - 20 bucks at most. Conversation is easier over something light, rather than a meal anyways. If a second date doesnt happen, no big deal.

    he said he made 50k a year, 50 bucks for a first date is nothing too flashy for that salary imo.

    I think it also depends on how much you like the other person. But whilst dinners are nice, I love it when guys do something different for a first date, like a picnic or something..

    um who cares? Why dont you just do what you do to have fun? If you are worried about prices and money and how much to spend on a first date, then you certainly wont make it to many more.

    Seriously, its not about cost, its about somthing to do together. Shit if your favorite thing to do is a day at 6flags, and you take her...with food and tickets and everything you might spend well over 100 bucks. Who cares if thats to much or to little? If you have fun it doesnt matter.

    if you need to decide all the on the first date, then go back to fuckin middle school. Why cant you just go have fun with a friend and take it from there. A first date is more feeling each other out than deciding your future.

    Good point.

    Ill guess ill just see where its gonna go from there.
     
  19. 5k !?! i make 15k and im just out of highschool working min wage? :ugh:


    try to spend as little as possable, if she stays with you no matter what you do on the date, she is a keeper. if not, get rid of the whore .

    so if you went out with a girl who was obviously trying to be as cheap as possible wouldnt it be a turn off to you? Just because someone wants a nice date doesnt mean she is a money loving whore.

    A nice date can be had for any amount of money, but to go into it 'trying' to spend as little as possible shows that you dont give 2 shits about her. Try thinking about a little more than yourself...:ugh:
     
  21. Well first off i am a woman. :rofl: ( so kindly take back your last statment) I dont mean cheap, just dont go crazy with the money, first off it will make her feel insecure because A. she doesnt make that much and B. it makes her feel obligated to go on another date even if she doesnt want to, thus making the guy waste more money.

    I wont take back my last comment at all. Its a blanket statement male or woman. If a woman feels insecure about being around money then she is trash...stay away (Ive never found a woman insecure about being around money but you know best right:ugh2: )...And how does that make a woman feel obligated. I know many people who have dumped hundreds on a date and still didnt get another, and the same with people who dropped none.

    Its about the date, not money spent. You must be at the um 'other end of the spectrum' then what most people think :hsd:

    BTW, how is it 'making' the guy 'waste' more money? Who says the second date will be more than a movie? And if he agree's to the date then I am sure he doesnt see it as a waste of money. Remember its a date not a relationship, people dont date who they dont want to...or atleast shouldnt.

    I'm with RedVsBlue here, a date is about getting to know each other. One or two dates is not a relationship. It's a step to deciding if you want a relationship, surely?

    And if all you want is sex then why bother dating at all?

    doesnt matter for me. i would rather pick a place, then see how much it costs, not pick a place depending on the cost. i want toe njyo my time, no matter the cost.

    thats my outlook on everything though... money comes second to enjoyment
