Stop Taking Women Out on Expensive Dates

by David DeAngelo

This is one of the greatest things that I've ever learned when it comes to "women and dating."

It's actually a very simple idea: Stop taking women out on expensive "dates" and start taking women out on FUN "dates" that cost little or no money.

If you've been to my website or read my book Double Your Dating, then you know about some of the places to take women that are not only low or no cost, but are also fun.

In this article, I want to talk some more about these great places to go with women, and why they're actually BETTER than spending a lot of money for a fancy dinner, etc.

A Cheap But Classy First Date

Again, as you may know, I first like to meet a woman for a cup of tea. Women aren't used to being asked out to tea, and tea comes across as a more "classy" idea than "coffee". Think about it.

Of course, another great benefit of tea is that it costs about a buck (if you want to be a real fine gent and pay for both of you it might cost two).

I like to do tea first because it gives you a 30 minute preview of what's going to come in the future. If tea is going well, then you can say "Hey, I think you're going to make a nice friend... let's go do something fun."

Who could resist that offer?

First of all, she's saying to herself "Friend? He only likes me as a friend?" and at the same time thinking "Well, OK... what does he have in mind?"

It's all very disarming to her, and very non-threatening.

An Ingenious Dating Idea

Now I want to tell you about one of my favorite dating ideas of all time. It's actually kind of ingenious in its simplicity. OK, I'll stop teasing you and let the cat out of the bag...

In most cities, there are funky, eclectic shopping areas. These are the areas where you can buy everything from vintage clothing to used records... where you can get a tattoo or look at old books.

Here are a few examples from bigger cities:

  • Los Angeles: Melrose or 3rd Street in Santa Monica
  • New York: The Village
  • Portland: Hawthorne and N.W. 23rd Street
  • San Diego: Pacific Beach, Hillcrest

Even smaller cities and towns usually have areas where you can go to shop for all kinds of things.

Now, why do I like these types of places so much? Because they don't cost anything, and they are almost like having a built-in conversation.

You can try on funky hats, listen to music, make fun of freaky people, watch people getting tattoos, and all kinds of other fun stuff.

It also gives you plenty of opportunities to demonstrate your ATTRACTIVE personality to this new woman that you're with.

You can wander away once in awhile to show her that you're not needy, you can tell her that you think she'd be cute in that pair of 7" platforms in the window, and you can find out what kind of taste she has (should you want to actually do something nice later in the future).

I can't tell you what a great idea it is to go out window shopping for a couple of hours, instead of looking at someone and watching them eat! Huge difference.

The Advantages of Fun and Physical Dates

And here's another great idea that will not only set you apart, but will also save you some money...

Take the object of your desire to do something fun and physical (no, not that... but maybe after). I'm talking about playing a few games of pool, bowling, or even an arcade for some air hockey or video games.

These kinds of things cost very little money, but they have a big benefit built right in: automatic conversation and fun. There's always something going on, so you don't need to come up with things to talk about. Just have fun, be cocky and funny, and make fun of her as often as possible.

Remember, you don't have to play the dating game like every other guy out there... you don't have to buy flowers, take women to expensive dinners, or spend a lot of money to make her feel attracted to you.

This is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to success with women. There are many more that you'll need to know in order to have the kinds of success that most guys REALLY want to experience.

If you want to take your success to the next level, then I'd recommend that you get a copy of my eBook, Double Your Dating. I'll show you the secrets to attracting the kinds of women that you've always wanted. It's the best investment you can possibly make in your personal life.
