Top Four Free Summer Dates
The best places to get it on (on the cheap) this summer!
Midnight make-outs, MAC-counter samples, Mad Men marathons. Every deal-seeking diva knows the best things in life are free.
Sure, you’ve traded your Fendi for Forever (21), your Hermes for H&M. But even money-mindful mamas deserve diamond-licious dates!
We’ve got your first-class ticket to free-of-charge flirting. (And no, we don’t mean those mouth-vomit mandates from your health teacher to hold hands and take things slow.)
1. An Apple A Day…
Get nerdy at your nearest uber-tech store. Men love gadgets – it makes them think they’re hip. (Not in those shoes, mister.) Plus you can show off your smarty-pants skills tinkering with toys of the future. Take risque pics of each other on digital cams and leave them for the next lucky/horrified customer. Aren’t you adorkable?
2. Don’t Hate the Player, Hate the Game
Nobody likes playing games in a relationship. Except when they involve those two magic words: You’re It! ‘Tis the season for some serious childhood regression. See how fast a game of kickball, flashlight tag or midnight hide & seek gets your hearts racing. Bonus gift? All that heavy breathing’s totally on the house.
3. Pucker Up
The recipe for any good romance involves a dash of sour mixed with heaping cups of sweet. So instead of throwing dollars down the drain on a coffee date, start a decaf-a-lon. Set up an Old Timey Lemonade Stand and see how much your squeeze can squeeze! You’re guaranteed a lip-smacking good time. And with your zest for business, you’re sure to collect some serious coin.
4. Stranger Danger
Take a walk with your FBF (frugal boyfriend) at the park, mall or beach and admire the fascinating faces in the crowd. Each stranger gets a story – the guy with the funky facial hair grew up in Antarctica, the lady with the lycra stretch pants sells posters of baby animals. You’ll be laughing all the way to the bank…to count the money you’ve saved on this date, you pretty penny pincher, you!
