No Need to Be a Big Spender

Dating on the down low - low funds, that is - can work out well if you handle it right. Believe it or not, some women will want to date you because you're fun and you have shared interests. So be creative and you'll find ways to work around the big-spender hurdle.

Get Out
A great way to spend time together rather than spending money is to do something outdoors. Go on a hike. Take a drive to the beach and swim in the ocean. Have a picnic in the park. (OK, that's not a typical guy thing, but she'll really like it!) Being active together gives you time to talk and get to know each other before you work up the other kind of sweat.

Tempt Your Tongue
Many great dates center around good food paired with good wine. So consider going to a free wine tasting together to learn about the characteristics of different vintages and determine what you each like best. Then you can take a cooking class or find a new recipe to try together at home. You'll be able to laugh about your mistakes and celebrate your accomplishments while toasting to shared experience. Who knows what you'll cook up next!

Shop Smart
If you both like finding a good deal, try a weekend drive to an antiques store or auction. Or spend time browsing used bookstores or neighborhood yard sales. As you explore new finds, you'll discover what you have in common and get a glimpse of what excites her.

Listen Up
When the weather's warm, free outdoor concerts can be a great way to spend an evening together. Add a bottle of wine and a picnic dinner, and you're all set. And if the band rocks and the mood strikes you, dancing can bring you close and get the endorphins flowing. Who knows where that closeness will lead?

If the show ends with fireworks, maybe your evening will too!

So, don't worry that your not-so-attractive bank account will keep attractive women out of reach. Just plan creatively and you won't need your wallet to make a good impression.
