Overspending to Impress Your Date? – Some Money Moves you Should Avoid


If you’re extremely excited to go out on your first date, all that is going on in your mind is definitely on how you can impress your partner. Would you choose an expensive restaurant or prefer some fun-filled activities in your city? Before choosing the date, make sure you have considered the costs. Can you afford the activity you have chosen or are you spending out of your limit? Overspending on your first date can lead to difficulty in meeting the bills during the rest of the month.

So, be rational and reasonable and impress your date with your personality instead of your wallet. Here are few bad money moves that you should steer clear of on your first date.

Asking or demanding something

This is the biggest no-no when you’re on a first date as this depicts a bad side of your personality and portrays you as a demanding person. If you see that your date purchases dinner for you and takes you to a good movie, that’s great! But if they don’t do that, it is definitely better to not ask them for anything. Your first date is definitely not the best time to ask for things. If they buy you things, great! But don’t demand things and potentially place them in a bad place financially at the very beginning of your relationship.

Spending more than what you can to impress the partner

When you show an effort to impress your date, there are times when you may feel that it is necessary to go overboard to make a memorable night. Remember that it is important to have fun but definitely not at the cost of your bank account. Check your finances and add up the exact amount you can afford to spend for a single night.
