Broke college students aren't a myth. Pretty much everyone in college is struggling financially, which means that they shouldn't waste money on elaborate dates. You can still have an amazing time with your boyfriend without emptying your entire wallet. If you can't think of anything interesting to do with your partner, here are a few affordable date ideas for couples in college:
1 Snapshot Scavenger Hunt
Even if you don't have a camera, you should have a phone that takes photos, which means that anyone could do this activity. All you have to do is create a list of things for you two to take pictures in front of. You can add "pond," "bench," "statue," "waterfall," and anything else that your campus has onto the list. When you get to each location, kiss while taking a selfie. It'll be a great date, and the pictures will make for adorable keepsakes.
2 Study Sessions
Make studying fun by adding a bit of romance to the mix. Ask each other questions and when you get one right, you get a kiss. If you get one wrong, then he gets to ask you any question about yourself that you'll be forced to answer. It'll help you learn about each other as much as you learn about your class material.
3 Great Games
When you're at college, there are athletes all around you. That means there are plenty of opportunities for you to go out and watch a game. Even if you're not a fan of sports, you can still head to the football game to listen to the band play and buy some hotdogs. While everyone else cheers for the team, you two can just talk. Hey, it'll get you out of the dorm.
4 Boyfriend Fitness
When you're bored, why not use the opportunity to get healthy as a couple? Your campus should have a gym with plenty of machines for you to try. If that's not your style, you can still stay fit by taking a bike ride around campus. You'll get to see all the sights while bonding with your mate.
5 Book Borrowers
If you're both bookworms, then you can head to the library together to form your own private book club. All you need to do is scan the shelves for something you've read before that you think your partner would like. Once you're done, you can swap books, read them, and discuss them.
6 Morning Movies
Matinees are always cheaper, which means that you should have breakfast and a movie instead of dinner and a movie. Plus, most theaters will give you a discount if you bring your student ID with you. So if there's something you two have been dying to see, make sure that you get to the theater for the early bird special.
7 Free Flyers
Pay attention to all the flyers littered around your campus. Most of them won't concern you, but once in a while you'll find out about a great show or party that you two can attend. As long as you keep your eyes open, you'll be able to fill your days with fun dates.
When you're in college, there are tons of free events that you can attend. Your date will appreciate how frugal you are, because it means you can save up to buy them a great gift. What type of dates do you and your college sweetheart usually go on?
