Free(ish) fun ideas for dates when you’re a Broke-Ass Student
Fear not, Broke-Ass Students, for we have the help you need for organising that date. Money can sometimes be an issue when you’re a student, but we have some great ideas to help you guys have fun for free! (almost). It doesn’t always have to be an expensive process guys!
- Go for a walk to the Royal Botanic Gardens/Do the Bondi to Coogee walk/Any walk in a place near you!
Because one, they’re beautiful and two, they are free! It’s also quiet enough for you both to walk around together and have a good chat, and getting to know each other. This obviously won’t work if it’s raining, so this one is probably better for a sunny day. Get walking!
- Go to a trivia night at your local pub
More than likely on a trivia night there will be a special cheap deal on for food and/or drink, so make the most of it. Trivia is also really fun, and you two are sure to have a good laugh at some of the questions.
- Sit down by the Harbour Bridge/lake where you live and have a chat
This one is nice because you’ll be able to talk to each other and get to know each other, whilst also enjoying the beauty. Getting outside is great for dates!
- Cheap student nights at the movies!
At most movie complexes this will be a Tuesday night, but it really depends on the cinema. Bring snacks from home or your local supermarket and stash them in your bag, because let’s be real – does anyone really want to spend $10 on a packet of Malteasers?
5. Cook/bake something together
This cheap, fun and cute idea means that you two will be able to heat things up in the kitchen. It’s also a nice way to get to know one another!
Don’t forget to be yourself and have a great time. Even if it doesn’t work out, at least now you have a good plan for all of your next dates!
