These cheap romantic ideas are things that you can do either on a one off or regular basis or you can use as date ideas.
They are either free or will cost you next to nothing.
You do not need to splash out for expensive dates either to woo a girl or keep a girl by your side. What a woman is looking for is that you are attentive, dedicate time to her and make an effort. The money you spend is not an issue.
The best thing about cheap romance or cheap dates is that it forces you to think a little out of the square and be creative. This is much more exciting than throwing money away needlessly for expensive options that don't require any thought.
At Home Dates: Don't go out on a date. Clean the house, rearrange the furniture, dress up and have a date night in. Turn off the phone, the computer and the TV and give each other you undivided attention.
Cook Dinner Together: You have to eat anyway, but you can choose an exotic dish you both like and cook it together as part of your date.
Massage: This one is tried and true but that is because it is a winner. Most people lack confidence of how to give a good massage, but take the time to learn how to effectively do it and then you have a useful skill for life.
Pick Flowers: Buying a bouquet is expensive, so if you know of somewhere nearby where you can pick wildflowers then make your own bouquet for your girl.
Set Aside Time For Cuddling And Talking: A free way to be romantic is to remove all distractions and spend an hour or two in bed together. The focus isn't sexual, even if it ends up going that way. Instead it is time set aside for talking and cuddling. This is the type of thing you do naturally early in the relationship, but it falls away when you have been together for a while. Bring it back with a little conscious effort.
Walk On The Beach: Another tried and true favorite, the beach is extremely relaxing and a long walk gives you the chance to talk ad reconnect. Walking barefoot and connecting to the earth also helps you relax and de-stress.
Share A Bottle of Wine: This is a simple, pleasant and relaxing ritual and a great way to unwind at the end of a long week. Rather than going out, spend your money on a nice bottle of wine and enjoy it slowly over good conversation.
Write A Letter, Poem or Song: This immediately brings up connotations of cheesiness. But when done right and with good taste this is an easy and cheap way to be romantic. Don't get too soppy and try and do this once a week, but every now and then this is a great romantic way to show that you are thinking of her and that you care about her.
Camping: Want a romantic holiday on the cheap? Then forget about a hotel or B n B and go camping. It takes a one off investment to get a small two man tent, but once you have it you can use it again and again.
Stargazing: On a clear night this is a great way to spend a summer's evening. Take a cruise out of town and if you can, find an elevated vantage point. Take a picnic blanket and lie out under the stars.
Ride A Bike: If you live somewhere flat and have a couple of bikes then this can be a fun and romantic way to spend an afternoon. If you are visiting another city, hire a bike to check out the local sights.
Open Houses And Test Drives: Whether you have a lot of money or not a fun way to spend some time is to dream big and immerse yourself in the good life. Go to the open house of a big flash mansion and follow it up by going to test drive an expensive luxury car. You might not be able to afford them, but it's a fun experience and inspires a sense of optimism.
Check Out An Art Opening: Find a gallery that shows up and coming artists in your area. They are almost always free and you might even score a free glass of wine. While you may not be in the market to buy some pretentious art, it can be fun to go and have a look.
Watch The Sunrise or Sunset: Wherever you live there will generally be a good spot to watch either the sunrise or sunset. The classic spot is a beach, but a small mountain or any vantage point overlooking a city will have a stunning view. Be inspired by the beauty of nature in this tried and true cheap romantic idea.
