7 Romantic Dates That Don't Cost a Dime ...


With the economy the way it is, you may think that you can’t afford to surprise your sweetie with well planned dates as they can be quite costly, but trust me, you can plan fantastic romantic dates that cost nothing.

You can use things you already have and places you can go for free to create an affectionate atmosphere that will bring you two closer.

If you’re trying to keep more money in your wallet, but still want to plan out special dates for that special someone, check out these romantic dates that cost nothing.

1. Photo Tour

Romantic dates that cost nothing don’t have to be boring or mean that you have to stay home.

Take a walk with your partner around the area where you live.2

Find all of the interesting or beautiful settings in your locale and hold an impromptu photo shoot in each location.

You can take turns taking pictures of each other or snag a stranger and ask them to snap a few shots of the two of you.

Make your pictures adorable and sweet or cute and silly, but above all, have fun!

2. Living Room Picnic

You can always have a picnic in a park, but if the weather is uncooperative or you want to have a romantic picnic dinner, the best place to do it is your living room floor.

Lay a nice, comfy blanket in the center of your living room, or the corner if you both want to be able to lean against a wall.

To add a romantic atmosphere, set lit tea lights or votives around the room (using caution and common sense, of course).

Cook something you know how to make well and use fancy plates as place settings.

Play some light music in the background.

If you have white Christmas lights handy, they also add to the ambiance.
