And that number creeps up in major cities: For example, New Yorkers spend an average of ,069 on dating.
To get an idea of what that spending looks like, we asked a straight woman who’s casually dating in Savannah, Georgia, to track her dating-related spending for four days.
I’m proud of myself for being awake, showered, and working by 9 a.m., which I used to do every day when I had a full-time job, but I’ve done a lot less of since I started grad school last fall.
I’m completely focused on my work until I get a text from Sam*, a guy I’ve been talking to all week but haven’t actually met yet.
He offered to help wallpaper my bedroom, so I’ve decided to make him dinner as a thank you.
I love nothing more than an excuse to go to the farmers market on Saturday morning, so I head there as soon as I wake up and stock up on what I need to cook dinner for Rob.
We order another round of drinks — I get the same cocktail and he gets one that’s basically just whiskey — and he insists on paying.
While binge-watching all of “Russian Doll,” I text Rob*, this other guy I’ve gone out with five times, to see if he still wants to come over tomorrow. It’s been a little slow-going, so I’m not 100-percent sure it’s moving in the right direction, but the last two times we went out, I had a lot of fun.
If you're serious about finding a long term committed relationship, LUMA is right for you.
