With the rise of dating apps and therefore dates, what financial advice do you have targeted to singles on a budget?
If we are looking at financial advice specifically related to dating, assuming you are looking for a long-term partner, it is important to remember that the goal of dating is to get to know the other person.
Research consistently shows that people tend to be attracted to similar others, so it makes sense to choose a city that reflects your own values and interests.
If you’re an outdoorsy person, your chances of meeting other outdoorsy people are greater in cities well-recognized for their outdoor-orientation (e.g., Boulder; Portland, Oregon), which might attract similar, like-minded people.
By opting for contexts that allow for easy conversation (e.g., going for a walk in the park, meeting for coffee), you're giving yourself an opportunity to get to know your date, rather than spending money on a date that limits conversation (e.g., for a movie).
