It’s hard being single in the world today!
When it comes to online dating, how can a great single guy like you stand out?
Let’s face it, money can be tight and if you own a house and/or are a single parent, there’s probably very little room for incidentals let alone lavish gestures of romance.
Here Are 5 Inexpensive Ways To Romance A Girl
1. A Rose
A single rose is a simple gesture.
It isn’t anything over the top especially if you are on a first date.
There are two ways you can present a rose:
- The first is if the rose is available in her favorite color.
- The second would be to pick a rose with meaning.

Cost: On average a long stem single rose will run you $5.00.
2. Be A Gentleman
It’s time to bring sexy back. And there’s nothing more sexier than a true gentleman.
One who holds doors open for his date, pulls a chair out for her, helps her with her coat, and shows up with a small gift such as a bottle of wine or a box of her favourite chocolates.
Cost: Under $20
3. A Home Cooked Meal
If you can cook, this makes for a great third date. You control the cost depending on the meal you prepare.
Just make sure your date isn’t allergic to anything or dislikes the main component of your meal. Not everyone will like seafood and/or spicy food for example.
Don’t leave out the best part…dessert!
Run to the dollar store and pick up some candles to provide ambient light. Music is optional but keep the volume low so that you can carry a conversation.
Not sure where to begin?
You can always search for recipes online.

Cost: Depending on your main dish the meal could run you between $20-$50 and you don’t have to tip the waiter but you can ask her to kiss the cook!
4. Create The Ultimate Playlist
Romance just wouldn’t be the same without music. Find out what kind of music she likes; some of her favourite bands and solo artists and put together a CD/Playlist for her.
She will appreciate your gesture and you will have created something that she can use over and over again and think of you in the process.
If you opt for a CD … add a customized CD label to finish off the presentation. You can choose to wrap it or gift it to her as is.
Cost: Depending on the program you use to download the songs they range from $.99-$1.99 per song.
5. In A Word
Try your hand at writing. If you are a country crooner, write her a love song or poem. If you are a bit of a wordsmith, write her a short love story with a hint of naughtiness.
If you are none of the aforementioned, a card or note simply telling her why you appreciate her will mean a lot. You can send it to her via email, phone, print it or write it down via pen and paper.
She will appreciate the sentiment either way. They say that the key to a woman’s heart is through her mind. A love poem or story is a sure fire way to captivate both.
Cost: Your time
There you have it!
It doesn’t take much time or cost a lot of money but it will go a long way especially in the dating world!
