You’d be surprised at how few women actually enjoy going out for a big, expensive date every time you go out. I mean, every once in a while it’s all fine and dandy, but if it’s every time then it just gets old. The best part about this is that you can have a date that’s next to free and still impress her and keep your relationship strong. How can you do that? Well, the answer is simple: you plan a stay-home date. That’s right – not only do you get to have a cheap date, but you also get to do it without ever leaving the house. In case you aren’t convinced, here are a few more perks.
Pick Your Budget
As we said above, you can have this date for next to nothing, which is great when you’re on a budget. Instead of going out for that expensive dinner and a movie, treat her to a nice movie and dinner in the comfort of your home. If you don’t want to splurge on snacks and food and god knows what else, then it’s all up to you. It’s not like she’s expecting much out of a night hanging out at your place, so don’t overwhelm her by making it too extravagant.
This is a date that you don’t even have to dress up for. In fact, you can encourage her to come over in comfy clothes (even pajamas!) and you two can relax and actually be comfortable all night long. She might look great in those tight dresses that she wears when you go out, but she’ll be grateful for the opportunity to wear something that’s actually cozy for once. You can also enjoy having all the comforts of home during your date without even having to walk anywhere, so you can feel free to spend the night just cuddling on the couch. It’s romantic and seems sweet, which is awesome because it’s literally the easiest date in the world to plan. Just pick out some movies and games, have some drinks, and make a night of it.
You Can Cook
The best part of this is that you get to choose what food you have – no messing around with overly complicated menus and wishing you’d ordered something different. Cooking at home means that you can have it all, or you can narrow it down to one or two things. It also allows you to have a great bonding experience with your girlfriend if you want her in the kitchen with you, or you can shoo her out and really blow her mind by cooking for her. This is a great opportunity to use some healthy foods that also double as aphrodisiacs to get her in the mood and make the night even more fun. Slip in some avocados into the main dish or some pomegranate seeds into the dessert. Pair that with chocolate and a nice red wine and you’ll have her in your bed (or on the couch) by the end of the night, guaranteed.
