Impress Your Lady Without Being Left Out Of Pocket

Want ideas on how to impress your new lady without being left out of pocket? Do you think a first date shouldn’t cost the Earth, but want to make an impression?  Don’t worry guys, I have the answer…


Taking your girl to the cinema is a classic first date! You can pop two straws in one extra large drink and feel that electric jolt when your hands touch as you both reach into the popcorn bag at once!

Just pick your movie wisely – taking a girly girl to see Star Wars on a first date might not go down so well. Ask her beforehand if there are any new movies out she wants to see, and if not, a comedy is always a winner.


Bowling will give you the chance to have a great laugh together on your first date, and is super cheap too. You’ll have time to chat and get to know each other, whilst a bit of friendly competition might see sparks flying!

Tell your date to dress comfortably, order some chips to share, and enjoy the evening ahead.

Eat Out

Eating out doesn’t have to empty your wallet, and as long as it isn’t at the local McDonalds she’s sure to love it! A meal out is a great chance to talk; although if you want to come off as suave, avoid anything that makes a slurping sound as you eat it – soup, today is not your day.

Picking her up from her house will give you the chance to spend some alone time in the car, then ordering a platter to share whilst keeping it super romantic.

Eat In

Alternatively to eating out, eating in is just as romantic and gives you a great chance to show off your culinary skills and impress her. Not really a budding chef? Ordering take-away to eat whilst cuddling up to a movie on the comfort of your own sofa is a cheaper version of cinema and a meal out, and gives you the chance to get close to each other.

Plus, this also saves those awkward moments at the end of the meal when you’re not sure who’s paying!


There are few things more romantic than a picnic in the park on a warm summer’s day, plus there couldn’t be a cheaper option for a first date either.

A picnic saves the noisy atmosphere of a restaurant, and you don’t have to clean and tidy to perfection as you do if eating at home! Buy a big blanket to sit on, plus a hamper and some finger food, and you’re guaranteed a good time.

Impress Your Lady Without Being Left Out Of Pocket. Impressive title ???? A collection of excellent tips which will not burn your pockets at the same time it will make your date pleasant too. Starting from going to a cinema to Picnic, everything will work out great if it goes well with the plan. I love bowling, so if I get a chance to go on a date I will opt for bowling and if she doesn’t know bowling, I will be pleased to show her how to bowl ???? and if it’s goes well then she could ask for a second outing too ;).
