    I used to have a rough limit on what I’d spend on the first few dates. I was a student at the time and could only manage dates around a fairly tight budget. As I’ve gotten older though I still don’t go crazy and throw money around on a date, even if I really like the girl.

    The last thing I want to come across as is a ‘show off’ when it comes to money but at the same time the ‘cheapskate’ label is a nasty one to wear. I strike a balance by ensure we always have a beautiful atmosphere, a nice bottle of wine and tasty food. It might take a bit of research on my behalf to find a place like that which fits into my budget but it’s better, in my opinion, than just splashing out and looking like a ‘try hard.’ :)
